I have been lax in my posting of the adventures that Mr. Tiki and I have had over the past month. We have been busy as I've been showing him the sites throughout SFL.Of course after his first trip to the MaiKai, he naturally wanted to go back. There have been a few trips back, but I did not take any photos. He wanted some privacy and I don't think he wanted everyone to see his darker/sloppier side. I suggested after "the incident" at the MaiKai that we take a step back and visit a friend at his home bar, The TikiCay. The first photo is with L:onnie the proprietor...


Next up, we have WillCarve dressed appropriately for the frigid 70 degree weather...


Tiki Cay was fun, but Mr. Tiki told me that he wanted to see more of the South Florida wildlife - you know, hang with foxes and see some hooters. He was a little disappointed when I took him to The Busch Wildlife Sancutuary...




more to come (as I collect the images)

What the hell kind of pervy animal wearing bondage? That must be one wild lives sanctuary indeed.

Thank you for fun thread.

I'm collecting photos from all of the paparazzi that seem to follow Mr. Tiki around. So one day while we sitting around talking tiki, he asked me about the beaches. There was no better time to make our way down to the beach for bike ride. Mr. Tiki is a little athletically challenged so we strapped him to the bike and away we went...


We started off in Deerfield Beach...


Put his toes in the sand...


Then we made our way up Gumbo Limbo Environmental Center...


This place is really cool and easy to get to. If you are in town and need a diversion from your typical tourist areas, I suggest this strongly. Here's Mr. Tiki hanging with some seahorses...


We made our way around the grounds and found this nice Chickee Hut - Mr. Tiki made sure to inform the other visitors that this is only a Tiki Hut when he's there!


After spending some time walking around the intercoastal we made our way to the main campus. He got really nervous when I told him that he would like the turtle rehab. He freaked out - apparently all he heard was "REHAB" and he was ready to leave. I convinced him to stay and we continued our journey...


FAU has a research facility at Gumbo Limbo and you can see the good work they do first hand. Here the nursery where they rehab the babies till they are ready to released back into the wild...


Lastly, Mr. tiki really liked the turtles. So we went down to the beach and got lucky that there was turtle on the beach. He dragged the turtle up to a good spot and forced the turtle to take several pictures with him...

On another day out in the wild, we ended going to 2 other local favorites. First was the Manatee viewing area in West Palm. The power plant there just set a viewing area at their outlet pipes (outlet pipes discharge the sea water that is used to cool the power plant. The water is very warm and the Manatees love it). The day we were there - no mantees. So got lunch at their cafe. Mr.Tiki enjoyed Manatee for the first time. He said the big one was little tough but the baby was very tender...

Here are some recipes if you want to make it at home...

Since there were no manatees we headed to Gumbo Limbo's sister facility in Jupiter. Mr. Tiki's appetite returned so we got a bite at the sea turtle cafe. Here he is basking in the "chewy goodness". He likes the Loggerheads and warned me not to eat the Green turtles - they aren't ripe yet...

I took my daughter and Mr. Tiki to see Medusirena, the fire-eating mermaid, at The Wreck bar last week.
https://www.facebook.com/FireEatingMermaid.Marina?fref=ts


He was so excited to finally meet Marina that he ran from the bar and jumped in pool! Thankfully, Marina saved him.


After the show the Mermaids made their way back to bar. For some pictures.


No one warned me not to look Marina in the eyes. Its all good, my family likes me like this - they say I've never been so easy to get along with? Thank s Marina!!

I'm pretty sure this is Mr Tiki's first time to swim with a mermaid!

More pictures are flowing in from the far reaches of Fort Lauderdale. The latest sighting had him back at the Mai Kai for Tiki Kiliki's birthday.

One last adventure awaited Mr. Tiki on this round in South Florida. What's Florida like if you don't celebrate SPRING BREAK!! The decision was made to take my girls to the busiest place you would never want to be on Spring Break - Universal Studios in Orlando. There were so many people in a very confined space - Mr. Tiki was a much needed distraction. OK here we go...

First day started with FREE Mickey Waffles at the hotel.


We got there early which allowed us about an hour to hit as many rides as possible without crowds. First up - Universal Studios.


Transformers - 5 minute wait. Then Mummy - 5 minute wait.


Due to the ease we had encountered at the other rides we figured we would dive into the new Harry Potter world. Mistake #1, 60+ minute wait.


This guy had the right idea...


The crowds had arrived and it was stand and wait for EVERYTHING! Mr. Tiki was bummed and needed to find his happy place.


He made a new friend.


By the end of the first day we covered everything at Universal Studios. We made our way out to my favorite place, Pat O'Brien's. Their Hurricanes are the only drink in the place that is worth the price. Reminds me of the Hunch Punch I grew up on in Panama City Beach.


Next up was dinner - we were all wiped out.


Second day started like the first with FREE breakfast and an early start at Islands of Adventure. Not so many pictures as attitudes were shifting. Here we are with the stars of the Sinbad Stunt Show.


Made our way to the other Harry Potter world. I never knew you could put so many people into such a confined space - HOLY CRAP was it crowded!! This is the only picture we got.


Mr. Tiki had enough of that, so we went over to the Jurassic park area. He was hanging with some hot chicks while I went and got lunch$$$.


By the end of the day Suessland was our destination. Mr. Tiki could not agree more with this sign...


I told him about a cool restuarant just on the other side of Suessland where we could get a drink we started to make our way over there when we met these guys. They knew of Mr. Tiki's exploits and wanted to get a picture. They started to argue over who was going to hold Mr. Tiki...


By the end of the night we were all totally wiped out and still had another day to go. Sorry no pictures - Mr. Tiki had enough!
