South Beach Miami: Part One

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to take a weekend trip to South Beach Miami. We had been getting quite a bit of rain, and missing our quick, once a week day trips to Ormond Beach, we decided to chase the sun a little further south.

What we found when we arrived in South Beach Miami was this….

We were feeling a little depressed until we arrived at our Luxury Hotel, The Tides

Things got a lot better when they upgraded us to this beautiful suite…

Feeling like a couple of wet ducks, we were happy to have a wonderful dining experience at Smith and Wollensky. The food was delicious as usual and we actually got to see a couple of cruise ships glide past our window coming in to port.

Yes, This is Florida Sunshine and beautiful South Beach Miami!

I am very happy to say  that this is what we woke up to on Saturday morning…
