Ft. Lauderdale, January 30-31, 2009, Fri. & Sat.

     Our South American adventure started with our Spirit flight leaving one hour late.  It came in late from Boston.  Everyone had to check their carry-on bags at the gate so we could leave faster.  Short 1 1/2 hour flight to FLL.  We checked in and while our room was being readied, we walked to the mall next door.  At the far end was the Moonlight Diner where we had fish and chips for lunch.  We then went to the KMart to pick up a few items.  When we returned, our room was ready.  Nothing special about the room. 

     We decided to go to the Dania Jai Alai Fronton to watch a few games.  We ate there and stayed for 10 games.  I won a small quinella and Ray won an exacta, so we broke even for a change.  It was fun to watch, but there wasn’t much of a crowd.  We heard they are going to be closing it.

     Our breakfast was included and it was mobbed in the breakfast room.  Many were eating by the pool, but it was cool this morning.  It turns out I forgot to buy mousse at KMart yesterday (it was the first thing on my list) so I walked back over after breakfast.  Our shuttle to the ship leaves at 11:45 a.m.  I don’t know if I will add to this post later on the ship or not.  Comfort Inn has free Internet, free breakfast, free shuttles, so I guess the hotel is special, just not the room.
