In November 2002 we had a holiday in Florida where we stayed free at two different locations: Fort Lauderdale and Jenson Beach.

We had met two different American couples whilst we were on an Alaskan cruise. Both these couples had invited us to their homes in Florida. We spent 5 days with each of them.

During our stay with Curtiss and Cath at Fort Lauderdale they arranged for us to take a trip on a boat owned by two of their friends. Whilst on this boat both Jackie and I were allowed the take the controls. ( see first two photos below)

When we were with the other couple, Edie and Sal, they arranged for us to go out for a meal on their daughter's and son-in-law's boat to a waterfront restaurant. see third photo below
