... the upkeep of the facility and the rescue and relocation of wayward gators, I was quite happy to pay as well as leave another $5 tip for the show.
Got back to the hotel around five, watching another episode of Gator Boys on the way. Walked up Las Olas to Macabi - a cigar and liqour store - where I bought a pint of Smirnoff for the room. Had a couple of vodkas with Gatorade and watched cable news - some mentally unstable contractor destroyed most of the computers ...

Tomorrow we will be visiting Half Moon Key. This is a cruise ship owned Private Island in the central Bahamas. Hopefully the weather is improved for the clouds and afternoon rain we had today in Ft. ...

I was using frequent flyer miles, and there were blackout dates making Plans A, B, and C impossible. One day I got fed up and thought I’d start all over. Somehow I had missed that the Prinsendam was doing this transatlantic. I had taken this ship, a relatively small ship of fewer than 800 passengers, on a westbound ...
