Today we slept in way late today. Completely missed the complimentary breakfast and had very lucid dreams. I drempt i lost a third of my bottom teeth and was trying to shove them back in. GROSS! So our first stop was right back at McDonalds. We stuck to the dollar menu this time and got our money’s worth with our 4 refills of the small sprite. After that we headed back to our hotel and changed into our bathing suits. We spent about 3 hours on the beach today mostly just floating around in the water or tanning a little on the hot sand. It was really really crowded. A few scary looking old men hanging around our area drinking and yelling with their families/friends. We are back at our hotel right now and getting ready to go find some food. Mandy wanted Burger King but the two that used to be nearby are now abandoned buildings. Taco Bell is also abandoned in South Beach. Its really sad but for cheap fast food your choices seem to be Subway or McDonalds. We’ll keep you posted :) -Jason and Mandy

Day 13 – Day at the beach

Today we woke up and actually made it to McDonald’s for breakfast. I got their sausage mcgriddles 2 for $2. I heard on tv that there were t-storms in the area today and 30% chance of rain. We headed back to our hotel and finished packing up our suitcases. Even though we don’t leave for another 2 days, we want to be ready and have our suitcases organized. After getting things straightened we headed to the beach. The weather was perfect at first, just some clouds and nice warm water. The clouds thickened and we even felt some sprinkles. It cleared up within minutes and we decided to wait for the few remaining clouds to pass. The sun came back out and so we laid out and tanned some more and then got back in the water later. We had fun looking in the sand for cool looking shells. Most everything was just ugly broken coral or shells.

After getting 4 hours of beach time in, we headed back to the hotel to rinse off the salt water and get changed. We laid around a while and watched some tv, then headed out to locate some cheap food other than McDonald’s. I looked up online and it said there was a burger king and taco bell nearby. Boy were they wrong, both have been abandoned and buildings for sale. We walked past McDonald’s again remembering that there was a Quiznos down Washington ave. I really don’t remember it being so far down, but I guess it was. Along the way we passed by at least a dozen homeless people. I’m guessing the rain stirs them up a bit like rats in rain barrels. Quiznos was a nice change for me but mandy didn’t really enjoy it as much. We are now sitting in our hotel again this time watching star trek. Mandy just talked to her mother who is mowing our yard as we speak. I watched her on our webcam which was really neat as she was able to say hi and wave to us in our front yard. (cam.mandymandy.com)
