    Fort Lauderdale

    April 5 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Zuallererst möchte ich mich für eure netten Kommentare und Likes bedanken. Das ist für mich än Uufsteller.
    Fort Lauderdale ist für seinen Strand berühmt, sauber und 11 km lang. Auf eine Tour um Krokodile zu sehen habe ich verzichtet 😉 , deren kleine Schwestern haben mir genügt.
    Und dann war da noch dieses interessante Sonnenbild.
    Morgen fliege ich nach Marsh Harbour/Bahamas. Vom 6.-12.4. segeln mit einer Reisegruppe.

    At sea for eight days

    April 15 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Had a very smooth embarkation experience, taking our luggage with us directly to our room. Attended a 3-5 star Mariner reception in the afternoon and made our reservations for dinner, a wine tasting and the Cellar Master’s Dinner later in the week. Slept so well and woke up in time to shower before we met for breakfast at 9. Attended the shore excursion talk before walking the promenade for 1.5 miles. Averaging 15,000 steps per day on the ship. Great way to get exercise without realizing it. Enjoying a fully refurbished ship, new carpets and drapes and upholstery. They’ve eliminated the librarian position so borrowing books is on the honour system. Entertainment on the second night was a comedian. Enjoying America’s Test Kitchen demos and new evening entertainment.
    Good Friday, day 6, has brought blue skies, a sprinkling of rain and a fleeting rainbow. Attended the florist tour, not much to see as they have cut back on such luxuries. The florist however has done a great job making do with less. Premiere wine tasting this afternoon and then the Good Friday service. No piano and but there are hymn books and a pastor.

    Saturday I attended the Bible study and connected with the Interdenominational group planing the Easter sunrise service. Have also been going to the America’s test kitchen demonstrations. Great tips for great meals in a short time.

    Gala night today and a production show in the theatre. We met a two people from Hamburg who are friends and travel together because Karin’s husband is in a nursing home. She and Ekhardt met more than 10 years ago when she and her husband were still able to travel together. It’s nice that people can come to an understanding like that.

    Garry and I sang in the choir for the Easter Sunday service . Really enjoyed breakfast after the brief but meaningful service.

    Enjoyed a Wines of the world tasting where Vic won a bottle of wine. Beautiful.

    Mittwochs in Florida ♥️

    April 17 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    😍🌍👣 Wir haben wieder ein 100% Plantbased Restaurant gefunden. WOW. Super lecker 🥰 Bowl und Burger !!! Danach haben wir unsere prall gefüllten Bäuche ins Meer getunkt und am Strand entspannt ... Neben uns sassen 4 amerikanisch sprechende Ladys. Die haben sich darüber unterhalten wie man Freunde, die bei einem zu Besuch sind, bittet früher als geplant wieder abzuhauen und wie man die Anti-Falten-Creme am besten aufträgt. Klopfend? Kreisend? Fest massierend? 😂
    Wir haben dann noch einen Abendspaziergang gemacht .. dieses Licht .. diese Kulisse 👣♥️ #zeitvergehbittenichtsoschnell

    350km später - Hallo Fort Lauderdale

    April 16 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    220 Meilen fühlen sich bei max. 70 Meilen/Stunde an wie eine Ewigkeit... 🤪 Die "Plazas" (Raststätten) riesen groß mittig auf der Interstate damit von beiden Fahrtrichtungen links drauf abgefahren werden kann. Teilweise meilenweit von Städten entfernt. Ich frage mich wer hier arbeiten möchte. So ein langer Arbeitsweg 🤔 Man sucht auch wohl noch nach Personal habe ich auf dem WC gesehen 😂
    Nachdem wir im 1. REIHE Strandhotel eingecheckt haben (bis Ende April nächster Strandzugang aber leider 0,7 Meilen entfernt - große Baustelle🤪), sind wir in einem veganen Restaurant essen gewesen. Die Burger sahen ziemlich trocken aus - waren aber extrem lecker 🤭♥️ Dazu gab es einen frisch gepressten bereits abgefüllten Saft mit dem Warnhinweis, dass der Saft nicht pasteurisiert wurde und vielleicht vorhandene Keime möglicherweise diverse Krankheiten hervorrufen könnten ... 🌎🙊 Die Amerikaner. Verrückt.😊 Wir haben uns dann ohne Magenprobleme oder andere Beschwerden an den Strand gelegt. 🥰 Arme Haut. Vom Winter in den Sommer ... 😝 Auf dem Rückweg haben wir einen kleinen Umweg genommen und uns ein paar Häuser, Kanäle und Yachten angeschaut. Ohne Worte. Mit Geld ist einfach alles möglich .. 💰🛥

    Radtour durch Fort Lauderdale

    April 17 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Nach einem für amerikanische Verhältnisse recht üppigem Frühstück (geschnittene Melone und Trauben, Äpfel, Bananen, Bagel mit Erdnussbutter und Honig, Toastbrot mit Frischkäse und Marmelade, Müsli und Kaffee mit Mandelmilch und diversen Säften, Rührei) ging es aufs Rad ... wir konnten die Räder für 10 Dollar für 2 Stunden pro Rad ausleihen und sind ca. 3 Stunden unterwegs gewesen. Mit sexy Helmen ging es dann durch die Stadt. Vorbei an teuren Häusern, noch teureren Yachten und ziemlich großen Tieren ... ♥️ was für ein toller Vormittag ♥️Read more

    Weston - on the Edge of the Everglades

    February 9 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    It was moving day....from Fort Lauderdale to the City of Weston, just 34 km straight west. Because we had to checkout by 10 and couldn’t checkin to the new place until 4, we went to the Sawgrass Mills Mall. It was exhausting, even for me, with more than 350 stores! I logged 12,000 steps dodging the Saturday afternoon mobs of shoppers with the added benefit of some good deals.

    I’ve been careful to watch where I’m walking and haven’t had any other falls. As an unexpected bonus, in the past week I found a dollar bill, a cheap bracelet, a lottery scratch card worth $2, and narrowly avoided walking into a 1 1/2 foot green lizard that scuttled across the sidewalk directly in front of me!

    Our new resort, Vacation Village at Weston, is a large resort complex that I stayed at 3 years ago. We are on the 4th floor of a high rise in a nice one bedroom updated unit. I think there have been too many moves for JS as he tried to get into a condo on the third floor (which is the floor we were on last week). Security was called and they were able to confirm that he was a registered guest but was on the wrong floor. I had the biggest belly laugh when he told me about this incident!

    Fort Lauderdale

    February 2 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    It was time to head south in search of warmer weather. Our condo at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is conveniently located between the ocean and the waterways, so we are a block to either area. There is a Publix supermarket and the Galleria upscale mall within a 10 minute walk. We have a larger (900 sq ft) one bedroom, 2 bathroom unit on the 3rd floor. It’s very clean and comfortable but my only complaint is the location of our unit. Although there are scenic waterfronts on either side of the 17 storey building, we have a view of the parking lot. Since it is peak season and all units are occupied there was no chance of getting a different unit. It was very difficult to find anything anywhere in Florida this month so I’m happy just to have a place to stay. We did succeed in finding nicer weather as it was sunny and 25 today :)Read more

    Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

    February 5 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    The State Park was only one block from our resort, another bonus of this location, and a nice change from our daily beach walks. Mr. Birch was a Chicago lawyer who donated his winter estate to the State of Florida in order to preserve the habitat for future generations. For a $2 per person admission we got to explore the 180 acre park and for the afternoon were able to forget that we were in the middle of a vibrant city. We hiked 7 km through mangrove habitat as well as a small hardwood forest, along a freshwater lake and the intracoastal waterway. The park is known for its endangered gopher tortoises. They make burrows that average 6 feet deep and 15 feet long, which provide refuge for over 350 other species. The tortoise can live to 80 years old. We were lucky to see two of them along the road. We also saw a lime green iguana, shorebirds, wild turkeys and lots of dogs. It was an enjoyable afternoon and exceeded our expectations.Read more

    Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi

    February 6 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    It was a great day to explore Fort Lauderdale and this time we did it from the comfort of the Water Taxi. The sun was shining and it was 25 degrees so we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day. Like everything else, the fare has gone up to $23 for seniors but we were fortunate to get one of the two-deck boats. We cruised up and down the full route, which took about 3 hours, only getting off once to have lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. We had the best guide on our return as he gave a non-stop commentary all with a good dose of humour. JS was not interested in walking today so on our return to the resort I did a nice beach walk to end the day on a perfect note.Read more

    The Land of Beaches & Waterways

    February 7 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Greater Fort Lauderdale boasts 37 km of “blue wave” awarded beaches, which means they have been deemed to be clean, managed responsibly and have a focus on protection of the environment. Since I don’t have the patience anymore to be a sun worshipper, I chose to do a 7 km walk along the promenade. It is a very clean beach with fine white sand. There were the usual homeless people but mostly locals and tourists enjoying the sunshine and a warm 25 degrees. The lifeguard stations were flying the purple flag to indicate the presence of jellyfish or man-o-war in the ocean so very few people, likely northerners, were in the water. We are located in the Northern part of Fort Lauderdale so the beach is much quieter, compared to the Las Olas area with all the open-air bars and restaurants. After lunch JS joined me on the short walk to Publix. It’s also a nice walk as we have to go over the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a forecasted windchill near -40 C in Winnipeg tonight so I’m grateful to be here!Read more
