I didn't get an entry posted yesterday, so you get two today to make up for it. I just love the sound of waves breaking on the beach. We live three miles from the beach, so you'd think we'd go there often, but in truth there's not a lot to draw you to Fort Lauderdale Beach unless you're a sun-worshipping tourist staying in one of the many waterfront hotels. There isn't really anywhere for the locals to park, and it's to far to walk there and back. But one day I put my walking shoes on and hiked to the closest waterfront just to see what was actually there - a lot of touristy stuff, a really yummy chocolate shop (which I'd love to revisit if there was ever anywhere to park within a mile of the place!), and the pier.
