Talk about the weather

The weather in Florida-in a word- cold. For the most part, the sun was shining. It was mostly in the 50's and 60's.
Now about the hotels...
On Tuesday arrival, we checked into the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort-go Intercontinental Hotels! All of the rooms look out on the Gulf and overlook the pools, etc. It was quite nice. I set up my sewing machine on the table by the window and had a great view for sewing. Since it is off season, the hotel was only half full and one night in the restaurant, we were the only about service!

After settling in, I went to look for the retreat hotel down the beach. According to the address, it was about a mile away. The hotel looked like it was closed! I called the shop and sure enough, while the retreat would be held in the conference center, we were staying next door at the Days Inn. And it was quite a let down after the Holiday Inn. Ever go to a hotel and not want to get into the shower? Yup, you got it. I think this hotel suffers from the ravages of Spring break.
