Nothing like an early start for a vacation.  The only problem being I was so excited I could barely sleep.  I spent a lot of time tossing and turning last night.  I am happy to be on vacation. It is a new  experience traveling solo for pleasure. So far it has been a good one.  Too much solo business travel has prepped me for it, so I am good to go.
I had the best kind of flight here, uneventful and confirmed upgrade.  I was able to get back some of those lost ZZZ's.

The drive from Orlando to Hollywood was kind of boring. Florida does not have much for scenery along The Turnpike or I-95. I did notice an orange grove.  First one I can remember. Other than that, thank goodness for audio books. Drivers around here are weird. They like to speed up and pass you then slow down and let you catch back up. Makes it hard to use the cruise control. Oh, sweetness of sweetness, I forgot my FM transmitter but the rental makes up for it.  It has one of those hi-tech stereos with a built-in USB port and controls for my iPhone.  That was a nice bonus.

The beach here reminds me a lot of Cancun.  It is relatively small sand area with a hard break but otherwise staying shallow and green. The temperature strangely fluctuated as I walked from comfy to chilly but for the most part stayed comfy.  To swim open water or not in the morning, that is a question. Or even more cool, run along Ocean Drive.  Let's see what the morning brings.
