Miami Beeeeaaaaccchhhhh!

While in Miami the kids and I walked around the lovely city..and even though I will be the first to admit I do
not like to drive in the area..walking is a whole other experience.This beautiful city by the beach is full of skyscrapers,a diverse selection of shops and restaurants,and a sweet assortment of parks...Something,I might add you might miss,by riding in the car.
With manicured lawns,crisp grass and tall palm trees..its a lovely place to visit.
..But once you hit the beach...well you may find it hard to leave..

Gee..even the seaweed was pretty..
..and of course the kids had a blast...and me too..Oooooh that water was heavenly..
calm..soothing..green..blue..bright..hot..wonderful.


Just wish..I had put on a wee-bit more sunblock..Youch!!

Being inspired by these lovely surroundings..the night we came home,my fingers quickly got to work.

What a lovely post...and I adore the piano music you have playing on your blog too. Miami is a wonderful walking city and I'm so glad you did just that. The only way to capture the sights, sounds, smells and color of this fabulous community...and of course, there is the beach. Sea Witch

I was in Miami when I was 12, it rained 5 days out of the 7 we were there...all day. when we finally got to the beach, it wasn't what I would consider a beach it was narrow, and it wasn't sand it was all crushed shells. I wasn't impressed, as it looked nothing like what we see on TV now. Certainly nothing like your pics either.

How beautiful, and lovely jewelry also!

Cat,
Thank you for coming by today and leaving such a nice note on my blog. It's SO nice to 'meet' you...another blog friend. And let me say that your blog is so lovely (the music is so nice) and I will be putting your blog onto my side bar so that I can keep up with you.
Lovely photos of an area where I have never been to....palm trees and shells. We don't have any of those up here at 8,000'
Hugs
Jan
