Woke this morning to workmen digging up the road outside.

The temperature at 9am is about 30 degrees so no way of getting away from the heat today. We reckon it must have exceeded 95 degrees later in the today.

Went into the Everglades today and did an airboat ride.

Our driver ‘Dan’ was very good. Before going he went through the different birds and animals that we could possibly see whilst we were out on the water. We saw all that he said plus others. We saw a few alligators, herons, tortoise and much much more. A great day out.

Stopped on the way home for a light lunch and little bit more shopping.

Spotted a Wal-Mart on the way home. May try to get into there before we leave for the Bahamas on Saturday.

Whilst we were out and about yesterday we spotted a sign for an 'Asian Buffet'. We went back there tonight for dinner. Biggest buffet we have seen. Lots of choice and fresh tasty food. Came to $25 including drinks and a very decent tip. We will probably go there again before we leave on Saturday.
