Road Trip Day 1: To Ft. Lauderdale

So as you might have seen in a previous post, I went on a week long road trip up and down the coast of Florida.  I live in Fernandina Beach, FL which is Northeastern FL so it was perfect to start my journey there.  We planned to go all the way to Key West and back. 

Before that though, we had some fun times in my neighborhood.  My friend, Kelli, and her family joined my neighbor, Kelly, and her family and I for some good grilling, conversation, family time, and fire pit with smores and hot dogs!  Here are some pics:




Yes, I'm a goofball.  Haha!

That was on Thursday.  The next day we spent the day at the beach.  This is Kelly/Kelli's little ones.  Ain't it the sweetest pic?!!!


Anyways, so on Saturday (Day 1), we headed to this Pirate museum.  It was not what I was expecting and not in a good way.  But the beach looked beautiful.  Then we hit the Jupiter Lighthouse (the 2nd one I've been up in) and I actually didn't do too bad (regarding heights) this time.  Nice view, too.  Then we hit the Blowing Rocks Preserve and that was beautiful as well and it was deserted so that was sort of cool.  But we didn't stay long.  We had to go to our hotel in Ft. Lauderdale.  It was a decent hotel from what I can remember although the food was expensive at the restaurant there.  We just relaxed by the pool for the rest of the night.  So here are some pics not necessarily in order:









 




















Day 2 coming up - Ft. Lauderdale to the Everglades to Islamorada!  I might break up some of these next few days because there was so much we did!
