Lahey wrote in an email, “As far as I’m concerned, the
most surprising and interesting aspect of examining the
Titanic wreck site was seeing the craft being slowly con-
sumed by the ocean while at the same time playing host
to a truly impressive and varied assortment of marine
life, which is thriving on the site even though it is 12,500
feet below the surface.”

Lahey added that it’s no surprise the steel wreck is fall-

be wonderful if the ocean could find a way to do the
same thing with all the plastic we have discarded? The
wreck of the Titanic will still be around for a long time,”
he wrote.

The Titanic dive is the penultimate voyage of the
Five Deeps expedition which began exploring the five
deepest points in the world’s oceans late last year. Now

Fabulous Florida living in classy PGA Village residence

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL | Columnist
[email protected]

The first thing you’ll notice as you ap-
proach the house at 8019 Plantation Lakes
Drive in the Reserve Plantation section of
PGA Village is the broad expanse of lawn in
the front of the house. Then you notice that
the home is framed with trees and shrubs
that not only add privacy and shade, but
make the home look even more inviting.
The house sits on more than ½ acre, and
that allows for a more expansive yard. There
is a long drive to the side, with an oversized
garage tucked away.

Inside, the open, spacious floor plan is de-

signed for casual or elegant living. There is a
formal living room (23 feet by 20 feet) and a
formal dining room (14-by-12). Crown mold-
ings add a gracious touch. The kitchen (17-by-
9) is a marvel of clean lines with its abundance
of pristine light cabinets with the soft-close
feature, quartz countertops, a glass tile back-
splash in sophisticated neutral tones, and
new stainless-steel appliances. It is a kitchen
fit for a gourmet cook or someone who loves
to entertain. It is adjacent to the family room,
a generous 18-by-15, with a gas fireplace and
access to the pool. This is a room in which to
watch the big game, entertain friends, keep
an eye on kids and grandkids while you cook,
