In Boca

Ok so I'm officially in Boca Raton and I've done a lot of cool things thus far and I will post pictures when I get my usb cord because I managed to leave THAT in Atlanta. But I've seen some cool stuff and let me just say ships look big on TV, they are HUGE when you're on a boat that's maybe 100 feet away and the homes and yachts that SINGLE FAMILIES own, let's just say I can't fathom that much house, that much boat or that much money. Granted a lot of them were for sale, but still.

We rode by a house that was purchased by a man who is part of the Otis Elevator family. He bought it as a home that he and his soon to be wife could live in, it was a gift to her. The story goes that he became sick with a serious illness and it caused him to go blind. His soon to be wife, left him because of that and the home is now up for sale. (I'll post a photo of it soon).

At any rate, I've been having a good time, enjoying the local culture, wanting to go fishing, go to Miami, Key West, etc. The people have been friendly for the most part, but I know no matter where you go, you'll encounter jerks.

I'll post more later, just wanted to give y'all an update.
