We have arrived at our final destination and have only 50 miles to the airport to do in the old Taurus, its old now as I have put over a 1,000 miles a week on the clock. Trip up was uneventful and nice at a cruising speed of 70+ to keep up with the others on the road. Motorway speed is now the same as the UK, fast. When we first came to the states it was 55 mph and only 70 on Alligator alley which crosses Florida from east to west.
Booked in to hotel and went into town which we love. more on that later as the blog goes on you will see how nice it is.
First we book the 3 day trolley tour which elevates parking problems, just drive to the depot and leave the car all day. Pick up a trolley and go anywhere in the town, 22 stops, sorted.
Wow, the Hotel swimming pool looks inviting, and blue sky's again, whoopee.
Fist stop the Old Store Museum, full of every conceivable gadget you can imagine.
Inside the store, a magical place.
Penny farthing the wrong way round to help ladies with their long skirts.
Tiffany Coca Cola lampshade.
We walked along the streets on the edge of town people where gathering for a Halloween Tick or Treat event with prizes for the best costumes. This little girl was waiting for the event to start.
This chap worked at Flagler Hospital and was there with his two young children, I gave him a card so that he can look on the blog. Although he was in uniform his children in costume joined in the event, on one of the children's backs was a message saying "Trainee doctor".
This was 2nd place a great set up, he was on stilts.
The family winners, a fantastic set of costumes.
Lastly this dog got in on the act.
Thanks for looking.
Situation tonight 5pm, quite cold and windy but bright blue skies, Sandy 1,000 mikes away but affecting Philadelphia Airport which we are supposed to fly out of Wednesday evening.
nite, nite, Luv Mike and Sue. XX
