Escaping the brutality of Winter...

It was mid-March, there was snow on the ground and people were still running around Boston bundled up like Eskimos. Did I jump on the opportunity to go to Ft. Lauderdale and spend a few days in the Sun? You betcha....

Just in case...

I forgot why I headed down South, I decided to snap a picture of snowy New England on my way out.

The Importance of Blending in....

I guess I just know how to pack. Or, why else would I've brought down this shirt that went so well with the bathroom walls of the condo we stayed in?

    Have wondered what Fort Lauderdale looks like, I see a lot of Cruises depart from here. Looks ok, like your canal photo!

    Paris is always good for a visit, though I don't think the place has changed a whole lot since you last visited =)

    I loved my trip to Ft. Lauderdale, to bad I can't remember the names of any of the clubs or restaurants I went to.
