Part Two: Flo Rida
We flew to the Sunshine State at the end of March, right when winter is really starting to get old. My sister lives in Fort Lauderdale so we had the pleasure of visiting her as well as the many other wonderful things that southern Florida has to offer. We stayed at the marvelously quaint Sunshine Motel in North Hollywood where we practically had our own private beach. I highly recommend this place if you don't mind mismatched pillowcases and cheesy art on the walls. It was super cheap and a perfect place to spend a week when you just want to lounge around. We spent some time in the city but the most memorable days were snorkeling in Key Largo (huge!! barracudas and the most colorful fish in crystal clear waters) and taking an airboat ride through the everglades (crazy peacocks everywhere and we almost saw a croc fight!!) We dined with the grandparents in West Palm and had a whirlwind day at Disney with tickets that my mom had days left on from years ago. We put about 1000 miles on our little rental car in a week! I haven't had two days off in a row since.
