the next morning, the bean went out onto the balcony to take one last look at the beach before we packed up the car again and made our way down to our last stop of the trip - fort lauderdale.
she managed to sweet talk her daddy into driving a little bit out of our way so that she could try something she'd discovered on buzzfeed - brazilian sweets called brigadeiros.
we tried to grab some breakfast at the bagel shop next door, but they were only accepting online orders with a wait time of over an hour. and so instead we hit up yelp and found another bagel spot that was on the way to our hotel in fort lauderdale. i placed the order online and when i went inside to pick it up, i spotted this machine that i would have loved to try (i don't know why i didn't, really):
once we arrived at our hotel, we changed into pool attire and headed down to see if we could score one of their cabanas. it was party central down there, but we managed to snag the last one.
as we were enjoying our afternoon of lounging poolside, we had a little visitor. he was harmless and just wanted to see what was going on, but the ladies in the cabana next to us freaked the eff out and shooed the poor guy away.
our room was pretty basic. nothing special, but it was clean and spacious.
