South Florida trip recap October 21, 2008

Posted by Mike C. in Personal, Weather.

It’s taken me a few weeks to get around to this, but here is a recap of my trip to South Florida, culled from some of my best pictures, at least of scenery and roadways.

Sunday, September 28
The pool near my grandparents’ house in Boynton Beach:

There were torrential downpours Sunday evening and my parents, grandparents, and I had to drive through them on Florida’s Turnpike on our way to dinner at Silver Pond, a Hong Kong-style Chinese restaurant, in Lauderdale Lakes.

After dinner, the rain followed us back to Boynton Beach.

Tuesday, September 30
My grandfather celebrated his 80th birthday at my aunt’s, uncle’s, and cousin’s house in Coral Springs.  It rained that day, too…

…but it ended by dusk.

The next few pictures were from the ride back to Boynton Beach on the Sawgrass Expressway (FL 869)…

…and Powerline Rd., which turns into Jog Rd. north of Glades Rd. (FL 808).

Wednesday, October 1
The following set of pictures was taken from my grandparents’ backyard and front yard, before my parents, sister, and I drove back to Palm Beach International Airport to fly home.

Now, the ride up Military Trail (FL 809) to the airport:

The view of the airport from Belvedere Rd.:

Riding our rental car company’s shuttle to the terminal:

Once at the terminal:

When we arrived at the gate, we found out our flight was delayed an hour.  But we landed on Long Island only twenty minutes behind schedule.

That concludes this recap.

4/9/11 UPDATE: In June 2010, my grandmother passed away.  My grandfather passed in November.  May they rest in peace.
