Spring Travel: Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Fort Lauderdale is a lot like Miami, it has the same spectacular blue skies, sunshine and abundant beaches, but without the frenzy. To start our exploring off right, we headed to the canals and hopped aboard a water taxi. The water taxis offer hop on hop off service all around the city which allow for plenty of exploring without a lot of back tracking. We were able to hop off at one place for lunch and then hop back on for more exploring. One thing I did not realize about Fort Lauderdale is just how many wealthy people gravitate here to build mega mansions or who call these waters home to their yachts. While we were there, we were able to see the Walmart family yacht, Elle Magazine yacht and too many celebrities to mention.
One of the craziest parts of our time there, was one of our water taxi drivers was from Seattle. Better yet, he used to live right down the street from us. Such a small world!!

This is where we tried our first bites of alligator. Much like they say, it tastes a tad like chicken.
When it is warm outside, a snow cone really fits the bill for my man.
One of my all time favorite photos of us. We look so happy and every time I look at it, it makes me smile.
The beaches were less crowded than the ones in Miami.

Such a great place to soak up some sunshine!
A spectacular sunset ended our day just right.
