So why am I in Florida instead of being home by now? Dear is working his company’s booth at the AUA conference which means I would have been home alone if I traveled there so we made the plans for me to meet up with him in Orlando, a sort of side trip to Seattle from Jacksonville, North Carolina. I didn’t want to be away from Dear for a full 25 days! The hotel room and his food are all paid for by his company. All we pay for is my food and expenses so I get to see another part of the U.S.A. for a bargain.
Walking along International Blvd. proved true to it’s name. We heard so many languages as we walked along. I personally spoke to a Russian couple from Moscow who thought my Russian accent was very genuine. I also talked to a gal from Romania and a few gals from Britain and another young lady from Los Angeles, which is an international city all it’s own…
We didn’t stray much from the hotel to eat because of Dear’s busy schedule but we enjoyed a meal at the Pub and their kilted staff. Is kilted a word? You know what I mean the staff wore kilts…the guys and the gals.
On Monday I scheduled myself a massage at the Hotel Spa. I went early enough for my appointment to enjoy their steam room, whirlpools and lounging areas. I was the only person enjoying this private spa area at the hotel on this morning. This was my only lounging outside experience in Florida. Sunny, hot, humid climes are not on my “go to” list. I am crossing Florida off my U.S. States to visit list.
Psalm 113:3 (ESV)
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!
