I have decided to end the blogging hiatus and start posting about my travels once again. This is only my second work trip back, and I’m hoping I can triumphantly merge from what I think is writer’s block. This probably isn’t the case, since I’m really not really a writer. I am told, as well, that writer’s block doesn’t exist and that I’m supposed to write until I feel like writing. I find this process very annoying, however.
Just last night, I found myself on an eighteen-hour overnight in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Once again, I must say that I am not a huge beach lover, but I do love the change of pace. Even if it’s only for one evening, it’s nice to get away from the chill and the wintry mix weather of Colorado and Utah.
I feel so spoiled that for many of my Fort Lauderdale overnights, I get to stay at the B Ocean resort, which is an amazing hotel that is located right on the water. After changing out of my uniform, I walked down the street to find some lunch. I came across a restaurant called Bo’s Beach. I don’t know how long ago they opened their doors, but the last time I ate at this location, it was an entirely different restaurant.
The food was delicious. I ordered the ‘Catch of the Day’ and paid just over $30. This is a bit expensive for my taste, but this is Fort Lauderdale, and since it’s a tourist trap, they like to jack the prices up sky-high. I won’t splurge for every meal but I just happened to have a craving for fish.
On the way back to the hotel, I walked barefoot along the beach. I ran into my coworker, Chrisantheium, as well as one of her friends who had come up to visit her from Atlanta. This is definitely a great job-perk. She was able to fly her friend up to meet her on her layover, just so they could sit together on the beach.
