A relaxing two-day stop with a bit of shopping at Sawgrass Mills, supposedly the largest outlet shopping mall in the world.
In New Zealand, the "Dickies" brand of clothing is quite sought after ... we pay three times the price that they are being sold for in the USA. Kim likes wearing them and also gets them cheaply whenever in Los Angeles ... we've come to the realisation that they're quite strictly workwear here, eg. for janitors, mechanics etc. So Kim had somewhat of a fashion crisis and felt the need to buy some non-janitorial apparel.
So as it turned out our stay in Fort Lauderdale included quite a bit of retail therapy.
We also enjoyed some sightseeing around the beach and pier area where we had an excellent dinner at Aruba Beach Cafe. The meals here were so big in this restaurant that most people were leaving food behind or having it doggy-bagged.
We didn’t have much interest in anything else … and didn’t have the inclination to re-visit
