Ft. Lauderdale


I'm in Ft. Lauderdale at a conference for a few days. This is a view from across the street from the hotel. The weather here is amazing. While it's probably just same 'ole same 'ole for Floridians, it's always amazing to leave your home where it's -1C and get off a plane in a place where it's about 25C. For my American friends, that's about 30F at home and 75-80F down south.

Although it's a lot less exciting travelling than it used to be, I really can't complain. Today is a short day and I've got the afternoon off. I'm waiting for a friend to pick me up so we can go out for lunch. The sky is gorgeously blue and I've already taken a nice walk along the beach.

I'm starving. Time for lunch!

Gratitude statement: Need I say more?


  1. Oh, I'm so happy for you to have a few hours away from the hubbub (that's Hub-bub, not hubby!) of everyday life.

    In between my happiness for you is the tiniest, most unattractive shade of green envy. :) The cold, snowy weather in the potato state gets on my last nerve some days...and it's only December. Dangit.

    Have a lovely trip, even if it does involve some actual work. :)
