Back from Vacation
We left last Wednesday for Florida (March 11). First we stayed in Fort Lauderdale at Mike's sister's condo. Very nice place right on the ocean. On Friday we drove from Fort Lauderdale to St. Pete. On the way we stopped at Myakka State Park and took the boat tour...there are over 1000 alligators in this lake, very cool. Then we stopped at the Seafood Shack in Cortez along the intercoastal waterway. My grandma use to take us to this restaurant when we were kids and we would watch the draw bridge. We stayed at Jami's cousins house for the weekend. On Sunday night we watched the sun set and then turned around and saw the space shuttle take off. Pretty amazing clear on the other side of the state and you could see it....Jacob was hilarious he kept saying "go space buddies!!!". On Monday we had a great day at Sea World and then back to Fort Lauderdale for the rest of the week.
