A May 2002 trip
to Florida by EPass
Quote: My wife and I wanted to take advantage and look at what other things Florida had to offer besides beautiful Ft. Lauderdale and Adventures Orlando.
We finally get there and the office was closed so we 'found' our keys in the mailbox of the office outside.
The room was cozy and clean, but the environment wasn't pleasant. We knew we may bump into some alligators, which from a distance we did. We only used the pool once during our week stay and it was just for half a day before the lake/swamp bugs decided to join us. Of course, hundreds of them ended up dying in the pool. Then to top it off, a 8-9 foot gator decided to stop by and pay us a visit. We don't like uninvited guests, so we left. Though I found it a little fascinating to see a gator right in front of you, my wife disagrees.
At night, it's insect and bugs party. They were swarming everywhere. We couldn't even launder our clothes without them wanting to smell the softner. All in all, I'm glad we didn't spend much time in the resort. But we enjoyed seeing the Florida many don't know about. I remember running over something at 1:30am, but who knows what animal it was. Traveling between destinations was ok, but would I do it again? NO!!!
Only one thing I found humorous. The night before we left, someone left one of the unit's front door open. Those pesty night bugs were having a party. I wonder how long it took housekeeping to clean that place? Of course, I was gonna close the door, but what if the person got locked out? Oh well.
