Genie (#751) 01-05-15

Went to a different Farmer's Market for a change of view. And, some different faces. Genie was sitting on the curb on a street corner, singing and playing the guitar. She seemed to be appreciated, as I saw a few people adding to the tip jar.

Genie was born in Freeport, NY, but spent much of her life in the Dominican Republic. She had no accent. She and her husband (who works at a market a few yards away), now live on a 32 foot sailboat. We discussed how the west coast of Florida is not very live-aboard friendly. They have been in the Bradenton area for seven months. Soon they plan to move on to the Florida Keys, and then Puerto Rico.

Genie has studied some photography, and gave me her e-mail address so that I could send this image.
