My friend, Mark (see my other short-stories), invited me to the 2023 Miami Boat Show, which I've never had any interest in and didn't know about. As a result I literally (Laileigh's new favorite word!) spent at least 20 hours this past week figuring out what it is and if I could actually go. I finally told him, "Thanks but not this time! Have fun!" (the kind of rooms I love which are facing the ocean with a balcony are $1500.00 per night (literally and by the way I now love a hotel called Eden Roc). There is literally no place for me to even park Swan and camp, campsites sold out last year and I don't have my own campsite "Limberlost" ready yet. It's 200 miles north of Miami but doable in a pinch and I told him, "just wait, Florida times are coming..." SO today, even though I'm not going (I don't think, I may hop in Swan anyway) I'm reading all about the actual show. I really want to see that beautiful beach. Plus a story wrapping up my book, "The Harvest of Chapelgate" about sailboats and yachts would be the perfect touch since I started the Prequel to my entire body of work with my sailboat tale, "Island." Just thought I'd share an amazing video I'm watching this sec. It is about the entire process of creating a beautiful yacht. Happy Valentines Day, everyone, and follow God to the furthest isles your fantasy can lead you to... xo Angel
A few days later:
Angel: "Are you in Miami? Send pics!"
Mark: "I'm SO tired. Yes, worked all day. Going to sleep. I'll send pics tomorrow. Night!" (He's at the Miami International Boat & Yacht show, the biggest of its kind in the world. I wanted to go but didn't. See my short-stories on my website.)
The next day...
Mark finally sends a pic. It's a pic of him with the show behind him, standing next to two people I don't know. "This is one of my best friends so-and-so and his girlfriend so-and-so."
Angel: "Awww nice! You look good! Of COURSE you’d send PEOPLE pics. I meant send YACHT pics LOL xo”
And that's Mark. He is such a great guy. Read my stories about our adventures. They are under "Short-Stories" then choose the "Texas Tales" category. xo Angel

Spanning five days from February 15-19, the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show features more than 1,000 exhibitors and boats. The Miami International Boat Show and the Miami Yacht Show joined forces to create this new show, which is one of the largest in the world.

My new love, "Eden Roc" HERE
My off-grid Florida camping property, "The Limberlost," named after the book I got my pen name, "Angel," from when I was 12 years old) is HERE. That book was "Freckles" by Gene Stratton Porter and the main character was a lovely-spirited blue-eyed blonde girl called "The Swamp Angel."
My book "Island" is HERE
"Island," is a fiction novelette about a girl who buys a sailboat (with a stained glass window), which she names "Swan." Then she sails away by herself to her own perfect, private, paradise island she found in a library book.
"Island," is a modern day parable based on Genesis 12: "Now, the Lord had said unto Abram, "Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee..."
It is a prequel to "Chapelgate, a Spiritual Memoir," by Angel Isaacs which contains her songs, poems, short-stories and Autobiography written like footsteps from 1985-2009 on her spiritual journey.
How it all fits together, Individual becoming crafted Corporate:
"A Small Southern Town" by Angel Isaacs explores the patterns in the Bible Individual/Corporate HERE
The beginning of my body of work, is the main book, "Chapelgate, a Spiritual Memoir." Lots of my work is here on my website under Short-Stories.
Angel Isaacs, author:
In the mid-1980's the Isaacs purchased and restored "Evins Mill" renaming it "Chapelgate" - forty acres with 3 waterfalls in a gorge, an old Grist Mill, Grainary, Millpond & Dam, Guesthouse, Chapel, & a Lodge atop a cliff. Angel is an independent Contemporary Christian music recording artist and writer. She penned "The Chapelgate Adventure Series" with the setting of Chapelgate. This series includes: the prequel "Island," "Chapelgate, a Spiritual Memoir," "The Songs of Chapelgate," "Willie Worm & the Apple Tree," and 2 music cd's "Degrees of Glory," and "Spiritual Tapestry." Angel completed a Master of Divinity at Lipscomb University then spent a decade (over 15,000 hours) studying the Bible through the ancient languages of Biblical Hebrew and Greek. This 700+ page book contains Angel's complete works (to 2009) - songs, poems, short-stories & autobiography. Her understanding of the Bible is deep, beautiful, and insightful. Her main book, "Chapelgate, a Spiritual Memoir," is available for purchase on Lulu. Also available are her books: "Island," "The Songs of Chapelgate," and "Willie Worm & the Apple Tree." These are beautiful hard cover books.
