Home Sweet Home












Temperatures in the upper 80's, sunny every day but one, swimming in the ocean every day but let me tell you, it is good to be home! For anyone who didn't hear, I was in Fort Lauderdale for the last week with Ashley K, Kayla L, and Michelle H. It was definitely a learning experience. For starters it was my first time flying. I was a bit nervous about it but not as much as I thought I would be. No worries though, I enjoyed it. Now I'm practically pro.
We stayed at the Ocean Manor Beach "Resort." I put resort in quotations because it was a sorry excuse of a hotel and I still can't figure out how it could possibly be called a resort. We arrived at about 8:45 Saturday night. The room they gave us was an absolute mess and as we waited over an hour for it to be ready the staff could only tell us "You just need to make the most of the situation." In the end, we did get a better room and were reassured that we would not have to pay the daily resort fee (again, I have no idea what that could possibly have been for). Other than our first night it wasn't so bad. It took us a while to figured out public transportation but once we did we were all over the place. The area was split up by beaches so it was pretty easy to get around. It's nice to have a week off, just soaking up the sun! Throw some parasailing and shopping into the mix and you have yourself a vacation!

Sorry about the sideways pictures, I forgot to flip it before I put it up and now I can't figure out how to delete it so I can redo it.
