Where I stayed
We hired another car, a PT Cruiser this time, and drove to our hotel the Sea Club Resort, it was on the sea but definitely not a resort, it was pretty bad!! It was 8 pm by this time and we were pretty hungry so we had dinner at a nice Italian place just down the road from our hotel.
We woke up early thanks to the paper thin walls. We heard the wake up call easily for the room next door! We got our first look at the Fort Lauderdale beach, really nice. The beach and hotels along it remind us of Surfers Paradise
We drove to the Everglades, which we were told is not a huge swamp, but a wet prairie. We went on a air boat trip and saw some alligators and lots of beautiful birds. To Sam, we thinking you should visit here, you would be like a Japanese tourist with your camera! We had to walk along the road because the car park was full and we saw some alligators about 5 metres from the road. We got a good look but I wasn't keen on being that close, (though I was thinking I could out run Alan!) They just kept sleeping anyway.
We drove to Miami and then to Miami Beach and checked in to our hotel. Its in a great location right on the beach. Bye for now Dianne and Alan
