... sunshine is what I expected but wasn't expecting wind and more wind.
I guess I could start a travel blog giving reviews of locales and places to stay...ups and downs but it is so much more fun just to tell it how it is when one gets to a place and finds things that one hadn't expected.
The journey started early this morning... like 5am and now I am relaxing in Fort Lauderdale in anticipation of a three day Art Fest with the gloriously talented Dina Wakley and Dyan Reavley.
Trying to keep the costs down has meant getting accommodation for the night before the days begin in order to maximize the experience and arrive on time for the 10:45am start. Accessing accommodation that I can afford, in this case I'm using points. Nice! So is it "biting the hand that feeds one" or something like that, to be critical?
