Ft. Lauderdale

Alrighty! I've finally finished up with pictures! As uninteresting as you might think Ft. Lauderdale might be after such exotic locations like St. Martin and Grand Turk, it was interesting enough that I managed to take lots of photographs!


We went to the Everglades, where we took an airboat ride where we saw lots of nature!

Some nature was even close enough that my zoom was not needed at all. In fact, I could have reached out and pet some of the nature.


If, you know, I wanted to ensure I came home with a nub.

After that, it was off to Flamingo Sanctuary and Wildlife Sanctuary with their super-delightful botanical garden. And, yeah, flamingos.


While I took plenty of pictures of the flamingos, the above one in particular, I did manage to drag myself away to finally fill up my SD card with some of the lovely plants and flowers at the gardens.

Of course, there were a couple other wildlife-y things I had to snap pictures of, especially since, not only did nature exist in the gardens, the place was a wildlife sanctuary, so there were lots of birds that wouldn't be able to survive in the wild.




After starting our day early enough to see sunrise, we eventually made our way to the airport to wait a few hours for our flight. Dan and I were pretty tired, so we used this time well.

Thanks to my dad for the picture!

And that's it, that's our trip! Even though I've shared a number of pictures over the last week, it's just the tip of the iceberg compared to what I took. But I managed to get the 2,097 pictures I took to a more reasonable 247 that I think (hope) are worthy of sharing. I'll post a slideshow of those next.
