|A Portuguese man o'war washed up on the beach near to Fort Lauderdale. One of many - hence the purple warning flags flying today. This one has some of its stinging tentacles attached.|
|This is why the men o'war were washed ashore. Strong bracing winds caused quite a swell today in South Florida.|
More on Fort Lauderdale soon. And why a Fort Lauderdale and then Key West combo makes for a great vacation. [coming soon]
