Miami South Beach

This has been the best day of our vacation so far – and we still have 8 days to go! We got up late and headed to south beach after a quick breakfast. It was close to impossible to get street parking (and the parking decks were ridiculously expensive), but we finally got lucky and got a spot a couple of blocks from the beach. There were people everywhere, but the mood was great and we had an amazing time.

Look at the amazing colors of the sky and water! The sea was so clear that it almost looked turquoise.
When we left our towels to feel the water we came back to a seagull helping himself to Andy’s t-shirt. It moved when we got close, but it didn’t go very far. There are just too many people with food around.
When we were properly roasted we went for a walk along the shops and restaurants by the beach. Everyone tried to talk us into getting a table or give us coupons for drinks. We ended up grabbing an early dinner at a place that promised us 25% off their menu, a free shot, and huge drink specials for happy hour. And we got to people watch while we ate.
When we finally left it had gotten pitch dark outside, but we still went for a walk along the beach before heading back to our hotel. Ah, I can’t remember the last time I felt this relaxed!
Tomorrow we’re leaving Miami and heading to the Everglades!


Greetings From the Beach!

After way too much laughing and one too many fruity drinks, I suddenly remembered that I also have a blog to update. And I should probably let you know that this might be a trend during the next week or so, because I plan to enjoy my vacation to the fullest!

We slept in after our terribly long drive last night, and didn’t get to the beach until about 1 pm.
But it worked out well, because it was a lot colder than we had expected. It was beautiful and sunny, but it was so windy that I kept my sweater on for most of the time.
The beach is popular in any weather, though. Every time we have been there people are surfing, going for walks, and enjoying the view. It’s a major tourist attraction, but I like it best when it’s not crowded.
After a couple of hours of tanning and fooling around we were more than ready to go.
And tomorrow morning we’re going to Miami! We’ve never been so it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Btw, me and Andy have a small bet going, so if I figure out how the polling thing on my blog works you have to come back to see my next post! May the best picture win!
