16: We arrived in Hollywood Beach, at the Lein's Florida home on Friday. Here we spent many lazy days hanging around the pool. But that wasn't all...we also walked along the ocean boardwalk, went to the greyhound races, fleamarket, Sawgrass Mills megamall, minigolf/arcade and rented a boat for the day and cruised along the ocean to Bayside where we docked and enjoyed a delicious lunch! Each day was funfilled and ended with a relaxing dip in the pool or soak in the hottub while looking up at the stars.

25: Dyl and Frank had a great time driving the boat. We saw Dolphins, a shark, and the largest sailboat in the world, The Mirabella V. It was an awesome day!!!
26: After a long day on the boat, I went into the shed to check on my laundry....this is the 'little friend' I bumped into! Yikes!!!
