Florida friends

Having some fun friends around while spending the month here has been great.

We loved hanging out here at the Funky Buddha Brewery for truly some of the oddest beers I've ever drank,
We enjoyed some Mexican food for my birthday and earlier had a great canal side dinner for Will's birthday.
We played tennis a few times with the gang and also hungout here at Hunter's for happy hour.

Hanging out

The picture above was a nice pond in the largest park we could find to go walking within a reasonable drive. Still the walk took under an hour total.

We have been working 1/2 the day and trying to do something fun the other half, it has worked out pretty good although we've had to retreat to the clubhouse to work a few times to escape the heat.
One morning we hit the dog park to find an Easter spread of fruit, donuts, Mimosas and coffee!

Last night or this morning depending on how you look at we woke up in the dead of night to checkout a lunar eclipse.
It was pretty cool but hard to photograph.
You can see how nice our neighbor-less site was.
We took a drive one day to Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. They were really cool and zen. There was also a great Bonzai garden with some impressive old Bonzai.

Probably the hardest thing about this trip has been the hear and the lack of places to go for walks. There isn't a lot of open space with trees around and with this being an extra hot April you really need some shade when walking.

Fun in Florida

This is the first time we are spending time in the trailer without moving around a lot. It is a little different, although we he been here before there is plenty to explore.

Tucker continues to enjoy the dog park, specially when we go late enough that it isn't too hot.
One thin that has been nice is hanging out with the guys we know who live down here. It has been great to see them and spend more time with friends we usually see only once or twice a year.
We were out for a friends birthday when we saw this VW surf truck.

Someday I wouldn't mind having a little VW Camper Van for taking short weekend trips when we don't want to haul the trailer around.
We searched out and found some pretty good BBQ!

Time for a rodeo!

We've actually managed to be in Florida for the Rodeo a few times. It is a good time, and certainly something we don't to see up in Boston.
Someday I will have to try riding a horse.

It does look like fun.

Some is ready to do some realy bull riding. A few years ago our friend Dr. Tom tried chute-doggin for the first time and managed to successfully complete doggin the bull. It was really impressive.

Some walking around the intercoastal waterways.

I hadn't ever been downtown Fort Lauderdale before so we tool a walk around the main downtown and then around the intercoastal waterway.
Lots of fancy homes and boats.
