    Last day in Miami

    August 9, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Relaxed day for our last few hours in Miami. Amy starts out with a walk/run along board walk to South Beach.

    Big, American style breakfast at the local Tavern, then a few hours by the pool (once bags were packed)

    Headed late afternoon to the Lincoln Road Mall. Unfortunately all outside, so too hot for comfort. Amy bought new habeneros (flip flops)

    Then we went to the Meat Market restaurant for very up market steak lunch. Very expensive but all agreed it was delicious and tastiest meal so far.

    Uber back to hotel in pouring rain - big puddles outside Delano hotel.

    Dylan declares that he is "the spark that lights our family!"

    We collect bags and head to airport for flights to Miami. Find my tablet left on BA flight 3 days earlier!

    Alligators and Dolphins

    August 8, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Shepherd coffee shop for breakfast via a hot sticky walk down the boardwalk.

    Dylan and I went to collect rental car - upgrade to GMC 6 seat Acaida.
    1 hour drive to Everglades before boarding our airboat.
    Fabian drove us around the swamp for an hour. We saw quite a few alligators yesterday including 3 babies, a few females with their nests and a large male.
    We then drove back to South Beach where we checked out the cool cars, cool buildings and cool people of Miami. Then pizza and pasta for late lunch (Dylan's had dollops of laughing cow cheese on it)
    Couple of ours by the pool before Jake and I headed off to watch the Miami Dolphins pre season game against the Atlanta Falcons. Great seats and really fun evening learning about American Football.

    Amy, Dylan and Betsy went to local tavern for dinner - massive portions of chicken wings and calamari.

    Acclimatising in Miami

    August 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Arrived in Miami late Tuesday evening, and then all up at 4am today.

    Quick visit to Miami Beach with takeaway coffee and fresh fruit, then wander to local restaurant for pancake breakfast.

    Most of the day by hotel pool - Circa 39 on Collins. Iguana in bushes to keep us company.

    Burger in Little Havana for dinner. Nice burger, but long way to go for fast food (even Cuban). Boys (especially Dylan) very cheeky (and funny) about my age and grey hair.

    Home for not particularly early night - hoping for longer in bed tomorrow morning!
