The hotel that we stayed at was in Deerfield Beach and it was about 20 min away from the mall so we went to check in. We had reservations to go on a deep sea fishing trip at 7 pm and buy the time we got checked in to the hotel and all of our stuff stored in the room it was pretty much time to go get on the boat, good thing we left early because the traffic was really bad. Thank goodness we had the GPS from Mom and Bob, she got us to the right place no problem. Here are the results of the fishing trip:
What you say that you don't see any fish! That would be because Morgan and Don each
The four of them were sitting on the patio of a restaurant watching this water show. It was so neat to see them after we had been talking about them being in the wild.
We ate lunch at one of Morgan's favorite restaurant's, Hooters, she said that her Grandpa Bob would be jealous. He is the one that introduced her to chicken wings, and when she was younger you had to spell it if you didn't want to have to make a trip there. She would get mad if he went without her.
We went back to the hotel and went to the beach. Now I am not one that particularly loves the ocean, I am more a pool girl, but this beach was awesome. I loved every minute of being there. We stayed at a hotel that was only 600 feet from the beach, so we were really close. We walked down there and stayed for about 2 hours then went back to the hotel pool for a little bit. We had to teach Morgan how to jump in the waves to not get pushed over, I thought that was just something that you knew, but I guess not. She had a really good time. Normally when we go to the beach we go to the Gulf and the waves are not as bad as the Atlantic.
Later we went to a restaurant that we found in the little book that the hotel had. It said that the restaurant was a casino in the 1920's and was famous for hosting past presidents. The book said that you had to go to the marina and get on a boat to take you to the island that the restaurants is on. The boat took us across the canal, as Don called it, and we went to Lighthouse Island to Cap's Restaurant. The place was an old wooden building that looked about 100 years old.
I had a really good chicken dinner, Morgan had Dolphin and Don had a Seafood Medley. Unfortunately Don and Morgan were both unhappy with the food that they had. Don ate most of his, but said it wasn't very good. Morgan ate 2 bites and said it was gross. Oh well. I thought it would be neat, but I thought wrong. When we left this cat was on the porch.
When we were waiting on the boat to take us back to the car we saw this crab on the dock. That was pretty cool. Then on the way back to the hotel we saw this huge crab walking in the road. Don saw it first and stopped so we could see out the front window. When I saw it I grabbed my camera and got out of the car. Morgan got out and we were in the middle of the road taking pictures, who cares about the cars stacking up behind us, we were tourists! While we were taking pictures of it his legs were clapping together, he wasn't happy with us being there. If we had picked it up he would have pinched us for sure. This picture just does not show how big this thing was. I was impressed by his size.
Well, I think I have told you everything, so I am done boring you now.
