Road Trip--Cruise--Key Largo

The Zuiderdam arrived January 3 in Fort Lauderdale. We ate breakfast in the Main Dining Room and grabbed our suitcase from the room to disembark. We just missed the first sweep of the parking shuttle from Park By The Ports where we had left our car. The shuttles came around every 20 minutes from 7-9 am so we waited for the next one which was right on time. 

Our car was just where we left it and untouched. It always makes me a little nervous when it's obviously packed for a long Florida stay and we have to leave it for a cruise. Add to that the location of the lot which was behind the Dania Beach Casino. All went well however and we were soon on our way to Key Largo.

The owner of the condo graciously said it was ready for us and we could arrive early. It was a beautiful sunny day and we found most everything in Key Largo to be as we had left it two years before. A few new restaurants but our favorite store for extras, K Mart was gone and half demolished. 

The condo complex was as lovely as ever and our condo sported new appliances and flooring. What a treat! We were soon unpacked and headed out for a late lunch. Groceries stocked after lunch, a meet and greet at sunset with friends and we were off to get dinner at our favorite restaurant for French onion soup and Mahi sandwiches--Skipper's.  

We slipped into bed and fell asleep quickly. Home at last--well at home away from home.
