My turn to freak out.
The good folks at the Miami International Airport Avis Car Rental, were quick, super friendly, and even gave us an upgrade. The whole get shuttled from the airport, get in line for the car, get the keys and go was super fast and easy. I thought for sure I'd be calling them to bring us out an extra set of keys.
After walking and hanging out on the beach for a couple hours, we decided to head back to the hotel. As I stood up, I did the pocket check for cell phone, check, sunglasses, check, lip balm, check, and car keys, shit! Sandi was laughing at me and I was calculating how much it was going to cost to have Avis come bring a spare set out. Then I realized anyone who found them could walk the stretch of parked cars hitting the lock button and listen for the horn. Everything was in the trunk, cameras, purses, charge cards, cash ... blech, I was feeling ill.
We started walking back and in less than 50 feet, there they were sitting smack dab in plain sight. I don't know how or why anyone else didn't pick them up. Enough people had walked by from both ways. Lucky me.
Today was major beach day.
Hollywood Beach, meh .... Pompano Beach, very nice ... Ft. Lauderdale Beach, really nice ... tons of great people watching. Sandi was careful, she used sunblock, but got burnt. She's quite red tonight. I wanted to get pink, some color at least. I didn't use any sunscreen and I have nothing. No color except what I got in the tanning bed in Michigan before I left, which isn't much anyway! Not even the typical burnt nose. Don't laugh at my fish-belly-white skin. I still have a few days to work on this.
We watched as they filmed a Coppertone commercial on Hollywood Beach starring Brooke Shields. We didn't see her, but we didn't want to stay around much longer. They take forever to set up one shot.
We headed to Bahia Mar Marina to check out the Yachts. All I can say is whoa! I've never seen so many beautiful
Googled for this photo because I though it uncool to say "Hey, y'all mind if I take a picture of your floating McMansion?" We did, however, get an offer to meet tomorrow morning for a "boat ride" with Dave and Bill!?!?! We smiled, took his card and said, "We'll call you back on that."
(We won't be making that call.)
So tomorrow (Thursday) we are headed to the keys for the day then on to Naples and the gulf area for five more fun filled adventurous days!
Oh yeah, sorry Ree, I hear the weather back home SUCKS ;)
