Another Day In Paradise.........

This week is spring break for Sam.  Last year we went to Captiva Island for the week.  We enjoyed it so much, we decided that we would do it again this year.
This week, we are staying in Marathon, Florida.

The inside is very nice, but, this is the reason we came...........

This isn't even the house that we booked for this week.
We drove and drove and drove to Marathon.
We endured the most awful traffic back-up for the last 30 miles or so.
Pulled up to the house that we had booked.......and......there were already unloading their car!!!!
Well, it appears that there was a date mix-up and the agent scheduled us for last week instead of this week.  Luckily, they had had a cancellation and the house we are currently staying in was vacant.
So, here we are.  The only bad thing is this one is only 3 bedrooms instead of 5, so not everyone gets their own room.

The gulf is 5 steps from the house.
Life is good.

PS.  after checking our e-mails, etc., it was the vacation rental people who mixed up the dates.......but what the heck, I think we ended up with the better end of the deal.
