It’s been a minute- and we’ve been enjoying some life!
Wes and I took a little trip down to the MIA- and stayed a few nights (the whole trip was paid for in points, baby!!) Free flights, free hotel, free rental car. All we bought was food and we had some good food. It was fantastic.
We landed around 1pm (our flight was upgraded to nonstop!) and made it to our hotel around 2:30 (we were upgraded to a suite there! Hello jacuzzi!)
Wes (having taken 2 Dramamines) crashed, literally, after we’d had a little lunch. He slept for 2 hours.
I woke him up and we headed for Wynwood. As a lover of art, and wes a lover of graffiti- this was the place for us. The Wynwood Walls.
We walked around there some and then headed to South Beach, because… that’s what you do in Miami.
It was getting evening so we grabbed some dinner and strolled along…
It really was beautiful, with the palm trees and the lighted hotels.
Truly reminiscent of the 80s… and I guess the cocaine that built the city. Tragic that something so terrible created such a beautiful city.
Day two- we went for a tour of the new Miami Dolphins stadium!
After the tour, we found a little beach that was absolutely magical.
Friday, our last day we went down to the Keys.
Our Florida Keys beach search ended pretty quickly- given there aren’t many beaches down there. We hadn’t planned on snorkling or fishing- and so weren’t really prepared for doing that. We laid around for just a bit, enjoyed the beautiful clear water, but then headed back to Crandon beach to claim a palm tree and take a nap.
After our nap we went back to south beach to pick up some souviners and to see the lifeguard hits.
Still so pretty.
And then Sunday was Mother’s Day!
Other shenanigans? We brought our 15 chicks home. They are happily living in the rabbit pen- while the rabbit moved back inside. It’s easier to clean up after one bunny than 15 baby chickens.
Miami, we’ll see you again!
