WHAT?

Today we are in Fort Lauderdale, and we booked a tour that got us a private airboat ride in the Everglades. There was also a “show” put on by one of the rangers at the park, which was mostly him telling us a bit about the biology and behavior of alligators, and feeding bits of…

So this is unusual…

We got in line for the guest signings at 2:30 and got up to the tables at 3:25. It was very unusual to see John Scalzi and Patrick Rothfuss sitting there, bored, while everyone wanted the McElroy family’s signatures.

Huh

Color me officially impressed: the concert is going on directly below our cabin and we can’t hear a thing! We’re watching the simulcast in our stateroom rather than attempting to go anywhere on the ship at the moment.

Watyr Festival

Toby and I did a food and history tour of Old San Juan today, and neither of us cared enough to go to the big concert that the JoCo Cruise has every year, even though the final act was They Might Be Giants. Which is good, because the concert kept getting paused due to rain…

I made a friend

A little fishy friend, who spent 30 minutes hanging around me while I snorkeled today. I have oh so many pictures, but they’ll (well, the best ones) have to wait until I can get them web-sized. I also took a picture of a turtle butt while we were on an eco-lagoon tour in a glass-bottomed…

WHOA

GUYS OUR STATEROOM HAS A TUB. And when I get the netbook out and connected I’ll change the default tag to JoCo2019 instead of our Europe trip tag.
