What A Drive!!

We'll we're in our final destination, before we set sail on the cruise tomorrow afternoon. We left yesterday morning from home around 8:00 a.m. We got to Cordele, GA around 3:30 p.m. We checked into our hotel and took off for the 5 minute drive over to my sweet friend, Linda's house. We had a lovely time visiting and catching up. We all decided that we were hungry around 7:00 p.m. Linda is in a wheelchair, because of her MS. We got her all loaded up, and we took the short drive over to Cracker Barrel for dinner. Afterwards, around 8:30 p.m., we decided to call it a night. We knew we needed to rest, since we had a very long drive ahead of us today. So, we said our goodbyes and made our final trip back to the hotel for the night.

We were up with breakfast finished and on the road by 7:15 a.m. this morning. We made some really good time. We stopped in Daytona Beach for lunch. We also took a break for about an hour in Cocoa Beach. We stopped at the Ron Jon Surf Shop and looked around. It was really nice to get out and rest a bit. Our legs definitely appreciated the stretch. We made some really funny videos of our stops in both Daytona and Cocoa Beach. I'll post them up, as soon as I get them edited and have some WiFi access that doesn't cost $300.00 a minute!! We finished at Cocoa Beach and got back on the road for the final leg of the trip. We rolled into Ft. Lauderdale around 6:00 p.m. We got all checked in and then went to have a look around and explore town. We're finally back in the room now, exhausted. Luckily, we are only a mile from Port Everglades, so we can sleep in some tomorrow. I'm sure that I'll have no trouble sleeping tonight.

More tomorrow, before we board the ship...
