After a long day of traveling on Saturday, we arrived in Miami at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning, We'd really just like to be home but with spring break, we aren't able to get a flight out until Wednesday. So meanwhile, we're enjoying some sun, the beach and exploring this city some more. It really is a beautiful place - I can see why people like to come here in the wintertime! I could make this an annual event quite easily, I think!
This is the garden that wraps around the pool at our hotel. I'll share more pictures soon.
It was a gorgeous Sunday in Miami Beach yesterday with brilliant sunshine, a calm ocean and lots of people on the beach. We went for a long walk on the boardwalk and then ploughed through the sand, trying to get to 'where the beach curves', in Bob's words. We walked for an hour and the curve was still ahead somewhere!
When we woke up this morning, the palm trees outside our window were blowing around and there's been a strong, strong wind all day. The waves are much higher with whitecaps and breaking surf pounding the beach today. It was still 80 degrees F but cloudier. These winds made us wonder what it's like when a hurricane is brewing out on the Atlantic.
And after 2 weeks of lugging around a laptop that wouldn't boot up, Bob splurged and bought this baby, right down on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. He's a very good shopper when it comes to electronics for himself :)) Well, I helped just a little and we are both enjoying it already. Working with iPhoto was a challenge today but I learned alot in a short time!
