We had a great time on vacation! Here are a few of the things that we enjoyed. In Fort Lauderdale we stayed at Vacation at Bonaventure Resort. We took a ride on the Jungle Queen to see the beautiful canals. I was fascinated by The Furniture at some of the restaurants on the Riverwalk, so I looked it up on the Internet. After seeing the prices I think we'll pass. Cool though. We dined at the 15th Street Fisheries after our tour. Very nice view. Very nice "early bird" prices!
What better time to see "Finding Nemo" then at the beach? This also gave us a wonderful opportunity to shop at the Sawgrass Mills Mall. While we were there we ate The Cheesecake Factory. They have wonderful food! (The website is cool too)
We left Florida to meet up with our daughters in the Smoky Mountains at the Sky Valley Resort. What an environmental contrast. We were in culture shock for the first two days. One of our favorite finds in Dillard, GA was The Leisure Store. By the time we left I think they were quite pleased with us too. I can't pass up a puzzle sale. We had a blast in Franklin, TN at The Factory. We putted 45 holes of putt-putt and by the end of day had bowled a total of 5 games each. Not to mention the girls got to be quite good at driving 18 wheelers. We drove over to Gatlinburg for lunch one day and enjoyed the glorious view to and fro. We drove highway 64 through Franklin to view several water falls. We also enjoyed a day in Helen, GA shopping and tubing.
