Fort Lauderdale, FL

The last time I wrote (over a month ago) I wrote about how we finally booked our Spring vacation.  Well, we've been back from that trip for about two weeks now. 

We both had an amazing, amazing time.  I think the pictures below kind of sum up the trip nicely.  They are all from the resort we stayed at.  We had a rental car but for the most part we didn't want to leave.  It was approximately 85 degrees and bright sunshine every single one of the 6 days we were down there.  I felt myself relax as soon as we checked into the hotel and we first walked outside by the pool and ate an early dinner over looking the ocean.

On the day of our return flight, I was so not ready to leave.  Apparently some other higher being or greater force didn't want me to leave either.  Our flight was at 9 AM but we sat on the tarmac for about 4 1/2 hours before acutally taking off.  It was supposed to be a 40 minute hop to Orlando.  We finally got to Orlando and of course we missed our layover flight so had to scramble around to figure out how we were giong to get home.  They gave us tickets for another flight that would get us back home around 10:30 PM.  The real kicker was that particular flight was first going back to to Fort Lauderdale first (a.k.a. the very same place that it just took us about 6 hours getting there from).  Luckily we got the last 2 seats on another stand-by flight that would get us home at 6 PM and was direct.  So it took us just over 3 hours to get down to Florida on a direct flight and close to 10 hours to get home.  It was a bit of a sour note to end the vacation on, but it could have been worse. 

When we arrived back in NY back on the 5th, it was 32 degrees outside.  Today, it snowed.  I tried to bring the beautiful weather back home with me, but apparently it didn't work.

This blog is fantastic, I hadn't seen any similar before. I have to accept I found it out by a lucky stroke, but I'm impacted with its quality. I hope you continue posting with the same passion you did it here.
