Fort Lauderdale, FL

Vacation to Fort Lauderdale for Alex's Fall Break.  Sunny, warm, beach, pool, nice hotel and good food.  We stayed at The Atlantic Hotel and Spa and visited Bonnet House Museum and Gardens and Flamingo Gardens.  We also found an indoor arcade for Alex to play putt putt.

A beautiful sunny clear Fall day in DC.  Lunch at Cantina Marina with Z & GG, a nice walk on the Mall and in the Hirshhorn sculpture garden and gardens behind the Smithsonian castle.  Then back for a snack at Phillips on the waterfront and to the Capital Yacht Club to end the evening.
