Playing Tourist in Fort Lauderdale
Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on February 3, 2015
Last weekend, we attended a family wedding. It was a lovely affair at a country club.
Look at this cake. Isn’t it worthy of the one in Shear Murder? And note the floral centerpieces have orchids that play a central role in my story.
I got to see my cousins, and my brother visited from out-of-town. This gave me the chance to show him around. He loves flea markets so we went to the infamous Swap Shop on East Sunrise. I remember the days when there used to be a circus with live animals.
We headed over to Bass Pro Shops and lunch at Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant next. I had coconut shrimp, while my brother had a conch salad and the husband had fish and chips.
Look at this iguana sunning itself on the rocks. There’s a whole bunch of them. A family, perhaps?
Anyway, it was a neat day, and we were sorry to see my brother leave. I’d bought vegetables at the Farmer’s Market, and what I made with the eggplant will be posted on my next blog.
