NFB Banquet

It’s been a long day of nothing. We checked out of the Marriott this morning and checked in to the Rosen Shingle Creek convention center. This is a very big resort. Marie spent the day doing convention stuff. It stormed a few times today, and I mostly spent the day with the girls hanging out in the room.
Right now, Marie and I are here at the banquet for the National Federation of the Blind. I believe there are about 2970 people that registered for the National Convention. There are probably over half of them here at the banquet. The kids are in babysitting. The meal was fine – typical banquet chicken dinner. Now various people are giving motivational speeches. Talks of movies that represent blind people as incapable and requiring babysitters. Talks about blind people getting paid sub-minimum wages. Talks about technology changes that must be made to make things accessible.
Tomorrow we leave Orlando and will drive to Charleston, South Carolina. Hopefully we get out the door early, and we can spend the afternoon enjoying the city.
