Ft Lauderdale to Marion North Carolina. PT with PNA. Embassy Suites Hilton in Ft Lauderdale was very nice. Breakfast was terrible however, it was buffet with soft bacon and runny omelettes. Went to Broward Medical Center to visit with PT. then had 5 hours until Pick-up. Had to check out as they would not give me a late checkout- hotel was full. Uber to Ft Lauderdale Beach. Very busy on a Thursday morning. Ate at Spazzos and had s Napolinta pizza. Was nice but want to try the Rock Bar next time- looks really cool. Sat across the street from the beach. Looks like fun although the ocean view is cluttered w/ cargo ships. Trip w/ PT uneventful. Landed in Charlotte, NC and drove 1.5 hours west to Marion in the dark.
