Ft. Lauderdale Sectionals - Day 1

We started out first thing in the morning at Boston Logan and traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for the Speedo Sectionals meet.  We had a good flight and arrived around 1:00 p.m., grabbed our luggage and headed to the vans which would take us to our hotel. 

After arriving at the Best Western Oceanside hotel, we headed poolside to eat lunch in the 80 degree temperatures.  Ahh, sunshine and a warm sea breeze, is it really March???  After mandatory rest, we walked down to the Swimming Hall of Fame for our first long course practice in almost a year.  The swimmers had mixed feelings about being back in the long course pool.  Some loved it and some found it a little difficult but by the end everyone was feeling better in the pool and did well.  

We ate dinner at a cute little restaurant on the strip called the Oasis where you sit at tables that are part of bench swings.  The swimmers all swung while happily eating their dinner and then we walked by the beach on our way back to the hotel.

We will meet downstairs at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast and then it's off to the pool to practice.  Enjoy the pictures.  I will try to blog each day of our trip!
