We had a great time on our vacation. Even if it happened to rain pret'near the entire time. This is what we saw for the 4 days that we were in "sunny" Florida. From our room and from our car!
Speaking of our car. We rented a Toyota Prius.
Have you ever driven one of those? Okay, so I didnt actually drive. I rode. But still, it was pretty George Jetson to me. There wasnt even a key really. It was like this little card type thing that you put in a slot and then you pushed a button to start the car. No turning of the key. Just push a button. And then push another button to make sure the car was in park. There was a little gear shift looking device that served as your shifter, but the weird thing was that it didnt actually stay in the gear you put it in. You moved it to the gear and then it popped back after it changed you to drive or whatever. I am so not ready for all this.
Here...it has a rear sonar device that beeps as you back up and it has a camera, too, so that you can see what is behind you. (This I would probably use. Maybe could have avoided that garbage can that one time....)
And this? This is the control panel of the car. It is like a touch pad screen. Reminds me of a cash register at a fast food joint. Pretty high tech stuff!
Anyway, there was a lot of relaxing and reading and napping. (For sure there was no frolicking or rolicking) I kinda like the 4 pm nap tho. If only I could figure out a way to make that into my day now that I am home!
