Back in Ft. Lauderdale

On Tuesday Martin and I went to the Ostrich Farm on the other end of the island. It was a very interesting tour. They are such strange animals - funky looking, a bit stupid and frankly, tasty...we had lunch there too :p Tuesday night we had a really nice evening going out to dinner with Sunshine and David. I was so sad to leave on Wednesday. Sometimes you visit a place that just "fits". That's how I feel about Curacao. The combination of the tropical island, wonderful people, the great apartment, and gorgeous diving - I can't wait for us to go back again!

We arrived back late afternoon yesterday in Ft. Lauderdale. We're staying at a new hotel/suite. It's located downtown on the waterway and it's sunny and bright with a full kitchen. I like it a lot more than the other place though Martin has a longer drive to the boat. We found a vegan restaurant last night and had a tasty dinner - Martin was very surprised but he really liked it! Then we went shopping at Whole Foods - a healthy return.

Unfortunately, I've been smacked with a horrible headache today. I'm getting paranoid - thinking that it's Fort Lauderdale. Maybe the weather? Barometric pressure? The last one was 4 days long, I'm hoping this one is short lived. So I'm hanging at the apartment and Martin is off to the boat to check on the progress. I'm sure he'll be blogging soon with an update on Lucky!

Feel better soon, Steph! There's been a big low pressure forming off the coast that is now Claudette; maybe you are sensitive to that sort of weather change? Our sinuses really are delicate organs and I don't envy your headache. Wish we were nearby to bring soup and sympathy...

Thanks Louise! I can get so whiny with the headaches, but they always pass... I wish you guys were nearby to - so we could talk and laugh and drink wine ;)
