We have hired a car for ten days and are now exploring Florida. Went to Fort Lauderdale which had a nice strip of bars by the beach. We also went on a day excursion to West Palm Beach and Palm Beach. We arrived in Orlando today but not until about 4 so to late to do anything big. Will probably go to a theme park or water park tomorrow, will have to check into prices. Walking around I recognise a some of the things I saw when I came here when I was 12. We are booked in for tonight and tomorrow. After that we will head up to Daytona Beach and then across to Tampa before heading back down and visiting the Everglades. Plan is to get a Greyhound to Memphis after that. There have been warnings about tropical storm Faye which could become Hurricane Faye but it should only be bad down at the Keys. We would have liked to visit Key West will obviously have to give it a miss. Thanks for the message Mum, will probably call within the next couple of days(no promises) Is everyone and the dogs okay back home?
