Our Winter Trip to Florida




Our yearly vacation routine has been that we take two trips using Fred's normal vacation time- one in late spring or early summer and one in the fall. These trips are a week each, with two weekends at either end giving us nine or ten good days consecutively. Our spring trip this year will be out west, but we aren't sure where we will go in the fall. But Fred is also able to use his unused sick days for another week off, and we often use that week to go to Florida to stay in the Fort Lauderdale condo. This year, the best time for him to go is in early March, so that is what we are doing. To maximize our time, we fly down and back (although for our other trips, which usually involve camping, we usually drive).

If you are already familiar with the use of a Master Index for one of our long trips, please click HERE.


Using the Master Index

We took a great many pictures while we were in Florida. While I could put them all on a single page, all the thumbnails, maps, aerial views and other stuff would make the page a little slow to load. For other long trips, I've divided the trip up into single days, but for the trip to Florida, that doesn't really mean much, since we are always at the condo and just doing stuff around town, around the area, with Ron and Leroy or with Ty and Scott. So the particular day doesn't matter much. So what I am going to do in this index is organize our pictures by topic. For example, I'll put all the pictures we took right around the condo on one page, even if they were taken on different days. Using the index below, you can jump directly to a specific group of pictures if you wish.

But if you just want to go through all the groups one at the time, you can begin with the first group, "Getting to the Fort Lauderdale Condo," and follow the links at the top and bottom of that page to go to the next group of pictures. At the top of each picture page, there will be similar links to take you to the next group, the previous group or back here to the index page.

When you are done looking at our Florida pictures, use one of the links at the top or bottom of any group page to return to the Index below. Then, use the link at the top of the index to go back to the top of this index page. There you will find links enabling you to move forward or backward through the photo album, as well as a link to take you to the index for this year.

We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. To access the master index, please click HERE.
