We hit Miami, FL around 5:30pm….lanes and lanes of traffic…
Ferrari’s were passing us….how awesome!
We had no reservations, so after walking up and down South Beach,
we ended up at the Ritz-Carlton for our 18th wedding anniversary.
The bathroom alone was huge….
with a great view of the city….
The pool was beautiful as well….
The famous “Ocean Drive”….
We spent time walking around the South Beach Art Deco district….
We talked to a girl from Pittsburgh who was
traveling alone and having a mango daiquiri….
The drink had a test tube of rum tucked into the side of it….
we asked her about this….she didn’t know what it was for,
so we asked the waitress…..
the drink had rum in it, but she says it sinks to the bottom and once
you drink it and the ice starts to melt, then you pour the rest
of it in. Now THAT is well thought out!
The beach was wide and the sand was powdery…..
The water was a beautiful shade of turquoise….
Look at the clouds in all of the pictures….really spectacular!
We had decided that since we were in South Beach, we had to try Cuban
food…We ended up here at “Havana 1957”. We had drinks and
I had absolutely the best Mojito of my life there, complete with sugar cane!!!
Then we strolled down Lincoln Road and ran across this
fabulous storefront display…..all vintage sewing machines!
Home of All Saints clothing….the inside was just as inspiring!
Next stop, the SWAMP!
