Some more pretty birds there. What i really liked about the store is they had adult cats up for adoption ( and to promote that they gave you a free bag of Nutro if you adopted one )

the view from the hotel club lounge, in the water below it there are manatees, i didnt see any though.

A manatee warning sign, telling people in boats to slow down and be careful, and they really slowed down and paid attention to the sign which was good to see:thumbs up

Sunrise at the lounge, it was pretty to watch and see the birds dropping in to the water to get fish.

When we went down to the beach in the morning the shorelines were littered with Man o' War jellyfish, they are quite weird looking. I will have some pictures of them when my dad sends me the ones from the camera

OMG, so see people outside in their bathing suites :yell:, I am dreaming of summer :p.

Did you find your trip down to Florida gave you a "pick me up"? I have never been down to the tropics and have always been curious if the warmth and sunshine give you a boost to come back and endure the rest of our winters.

I do liketaking the trips down south, it helps to break up the winter and shorten it up a bit, even if t is only for a few days. It does suck having to come back to the reality of the cold winter though.

Too bad you couldn't bring the gator home. He was a cutie! :D

Also too bad you didn't manage to spot any manatees! I've always wanted to see them.

Looks like you had a good vacation! :thumbs up

I was really hoping to see some manatees, that would have been cool !
