Airboat Tour

Yesterday after work we headed out on an airboat tour of the Everglades. We signed up for a 90 minute tour. Once we arrived at the tour location we were quickly boarded and off into the Everglades we had fun cruising around and looking at the plants and animals. We would drive for a while, then stop and look at things, then go somewhere else. Our guide had a good plan and showed us several alligators, birds, fish, and plants. 







This last one is an accidental video. My phone spends most of the video in my pocket.

RV Park Minigolf

This evening we had the chance to play minigolf at the RV park. A few of our parks along the way have had courses, and they are not usually well maintained. The minigolf course here is amazing – with some cool features we have never seen before. 


Hanging out in South Beach

After work we went to South Beach. We started by hanging out at the beach.
There was an iguana playing in the waves.
Our older kids also had fun playing in the waves.
After the beach we had a picnic in the park.
I had to pose in this funny position so you could see the palm trees in my sunglasses.

Palm Coast -> Miami

Today we said goodbye to the Reagens, left our condo, picked up our RV, and headed 6 hours south to Miami. It was good drive through mostly boring Florida, but arriving in Miami was great. I love the tropical & Latino feel. After getting settled in I took the kids to the grocery store where we found a strong Latino influence and someone even had a pet monkey at the store. 

Friday in Palm Coast

Today we headed to the beach, about 15 minutes from our condo.
The waves were not too big, but Elliot managed to at least get up on the surfboard.
The wind and sun were a factor.
Most of us huddled behind an umbrella, for shelter from the wind.
Some of us dug.
For dinner we went out for pizza in the European Village. We waited over an hour.
After dinner we watched #16 UMBC beat #1 Virginia.

More Palm Coast Fun

The kids have been having fun in the game room.
In the afternoon we went to a state park with a formal garden. It was beautiful.
Erin & Nate watched all the kids tonight so that Susan and I could get out on a date.
