Fort Lauderdale - Part II

I’m not a beach person so I can’t lie on the beach for the whole duration of the vacation, while hubby is the opposite. So, hubby and I agreed that anywhere we go, there must be some other stuff for me to do. I’m a sight seeing person, my ideal vacation would be a sight seeing tour.

Therefore, on the 3rd day of our Florida vacation, we decided to take the water taxi for a sight seeing tour and also do some shopping Florida is known as the Venice of USA. There are water ways that connect places by boats.
We hopped on the water taxi and along the way, were introduced to million dollar mansions and yachts of filthy rich people like Nicholas Cage, owner of Best Buy etc. Some of the boats cost $25 mil!!


That day was an exceptionally hot day and hubby was feeling weak from the heat, so we stopped at a huge mall to have lunch and do some shopping.

The 4th day was spent at the beach cos it was too hot to go anywhere. It was also the last full day of our vacation. The next day, time to go home. We can’t wait to see Olivia.

This is most likely our last vacation just by ourselves. My in-laws are getting old and they are finding it difficult to keep up with Olivia.
