Trip to Miami Beach

Back home again. That week sure went fast! Probably not as fast for Hubby as he had lots of classes and sessions to go to all week but we did have afternoons free and made the most of it by enjoying Miami beach each day.

My footprints in the sand.

The boardwalk goes on and on. We took a long walk on that one day and went into town.

I told Hubby to wait until a big wave covered me up! :o)

This is a part of the pool area. You can rent these round things to lay on at the pool. We didn't and no one else did that we could see. Everything cost so much there, two hot turkey sandwiches and two glasses of Pepsi cost almost $70.00!!! Yikes! We didn't do that again!!

This spot in the ocean is Hubby.

This is one of the wings at the Fountainbleu Hotel, we were on the ninth floor.

One night they took us to a restaurant in downtown Miami Beach. It belongs to Gloria Estafen and her husband Emilio. It was lots of fun and they had Lucy and Desi waiting there to greet us. All the men were supposed to wear these goofy hats, they said we made a good Fred and Ethel!

I really liked the Cuban food which surprised me as I am kind of a meat and potatoes type gal. The restaurant had a nice band there for us and the tables were decorated really nice.

They taught everyone (that wanted to participate) how to do the salsa and it was a hoot. Having two left feet Hubby and I sat that one out! There was a man there rolling Cu*ban cigars which was interesting. Some of the men smoked them, again we sat that one out too. :o)

Guess that's enough for this time. I have more to show you but don't want this to get so long that your eyes glaze over. We consider ourselves very blessed to be able to visit all the different places that business takes us. It's fun to see new places and try new foods, learning about different cultures. It's always good to get home though and sleep in ones own bed. :o) Continued next time......

Yay! You're back safe and sound! Loved seeing all the pics of the beach. Sigh, makes me want to head for the coast as it is blazing hot today. I nearly choked on my iced tea when I read the price of the sandwiches and Pepsi. How on earth can they justify charging that much!
Looking forward to more pictures!
love you,

Renie Burghardt said...

Wow, from the looks of all the great pics, it looks like you had a great time. Stayed at the Fountainblue a few years ago, and really loved it. And that was an expensive turkey sandwich and drink for sure! And I don't think you two looked like Fred and Ethel at all, more like Lucy and Ricky! Only better looking!

I really enjoyed reading about your trip and look forward to more pictures. Have a great Sunday, Louise!



Dawn said...

What lovely places you get to stay! The Cuban restaurant sounds like fun. One of the profs I worked with for years was a Cuban who was airlifted out of Cuba when Castro was threatening to take the children of all the professional people. Her parents were a doctor and an attorney. She came to Colorado from Miami and always loved going back "home" for good food and coffee.

I'm glad you passed on the Cuban cigars! Hee hee.

Andrea said...

What a fun trip! I love the beach picture with the wave covering you up, you crack me up. What a good hubby to listen. The water was beautiful and the beach looked like fun. Lucile looked good too! What a fun trip!

Mrs Mom said...

Wow! You are way braver than me. Oh sure- I live on the coast, and we sometimes even visit the beach. But apparently we have watched Shark Week one too many times! ;) Won't catch us in salt water! LOL

Glad you are home and had such a great time! Love the pix. It is so pretty!

Smooches to the Boys from me please!

Musings of a Housewife said...

JEALOUS! That looks like SO much fun.

And can I PLEASE change the wallpaper to your blog? I know you're in the frigid North, but it can't STILL be snowing up there, can it??

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

Wow!! I am so jealous! Looks like you guys had a fabulous time. The sand and the water look great and the restaurant sounds so yummy!

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

Wow....looks like one great trip!

hippo chick said...

Looks like you had a great time. The colors are so bright. The beach and the pool look wonderful.

I surely would have tried the Salsa. I'm not a real good dancer, but just love to dance.

I remember paying $5 for a cup of coffee in Paris in the early 90's. I nearly expired on the spot.

I love the Fred & Ethel pic. My girlfriend and I are often times Lucy and Ethel.

Glad you're back. Keep thise fun posts coming.

~hippo hugs~

Callie said...

Cool! Great photos and what fun!

Dawn said...

I just read your comment over at Pea's place and learned that you're having cold stuff. I hadn't checked on the weather site for Kev's weather - and he didn't call last night - maybe tonight. I am getting ready to send him his summer clothes - good thing he has his winter stuff!

PEA said...

Good morning dear friend:-)

It's cold and raining today and I told mom that I am not leaving the house today, she can get Ross' son to drive her to the hospital today! lol I need one day's break or I'll be useless to everyone, I'm just feeling so exhausted emotionally.

So glad to hear that you had such a great time in Florida. Loved seeing all the pictures, everything looks so lush and green! And the ocean, how beautiful!! It's unfortunate that everything is so expensive when you order anything to eat in those places....I would have had heart failure to get that bill for 2 hot sandwiches and drinks! lol

How fun to have "Lucy and Desi" welcome you to that restaurant:-) I've never had Cuban food...if it's spicy then I wouldn't like it, that's all I know! lol

Good to have you safe and sound!! Love you tons!!!! xoxoxo

Mary said...

Wow! It looks like you had a terrific time. Everything looks so pretty. I was to Miami once many years ago.

Glad you are safely home and that you enjoyed the trip. It's always great to get away.

Enjoy your week.

KC said...
