Fort Lauderdale in our Rear View Mirror
Posted by Chris Guld
We got back on the road today. Leaving Fort Lauderdale behind .... again. We had a great time. Saw so many friends and family, and did the kayak diving we love so much (have I told you about that?) We saved the weekend for that 'one last visit.' With Jim's sister and brother in law, we chose to take in a show. We saw Paula Poundstone perform at the West Palm Beach Improv. It was Cool! We were just a few feet away from her. And the dinner was great too. With old friends, Chris and Richard, we loved their suggestion to go get a hamburger at one of our old hangouts, Le Tub, on Hollywood Beach. Saying goodbye to Jim's folks was the hardest part - we made it short and sweet. My Mom was the easy part, since we put her on a plane last week! So, now we're on our way to Texas where we plan to work at Coach Connect's offices in Austin for a few months. We finally hit the road about 3:30 and made it a couple hours before stopping. We've been eating out a lot lately in Fort Lauderdale, it's kinda nice to be back to our simple lifestyle on the road. Here we are with our marvelous dinner of fresh fish (snook) given to us by a neighbor in Paradise Island who caught it yesterday! (Jim gave him a couple lobster) We also opened the bottle of wine that we've been saving. This is the bottle that David, from Prairie Oasis RV, made - and he told us it needed to age for 3 months. That was on May 21. It tasted wonderful! The adventure continues!
