Portuguese Man of War Jellyfish
Beware of the very dangerous jellyfish.
We encountered them in the water and
washed up on shore on these Florida
beaches in December:
Boca Raton Beach - Deerfield Beach
Delray Beach - Lantana Beach

DO NOT TOUCH THEM IN WATER
DO NOT PICK THEM UP ON THE BEACH
In South Florida, and certainly on the many luxurious golf courses, signs are often posted concerning the proximity of alligators. As these images show, the signs should be taken very seriously. This guy is not small. And - he is not alone ( image 3).
When we arrived at the Residence in the hotel was completly different from what we expected.
We where used to appartment like hotels with elevators. When we saw the way this hotel was made we where pleasantly surprised...but if you don't walk that well and have problems with stairs be sure to ask if you need to climb any stairs to get into your room or bedroom....because we didn't have an elevator, no problem for us but it could be if you are really in need of one...

Driving is quite dangerous in South Florida. The mix of the old people who cannot see very well and the young hotrods in their fast cars makes for dangerous conditions. I have never seen so many accidents and car fires in my life.
