Spicyland in South BeachPosted: February 9, 2014
Well hello there!
I can’t believe it’s been just over two weeks since we left to head south….naturally the vacation flew (don’t they always), and last week back was a speedy blur of settling in and catch-up. But here we are, and I have loads of photos to show you!
DT and I found ourselves happily back in South Beach to kick off our trip, gosh do we love it there. We returned to our favorite places….The Richmond, Lincoln Road, Espanola Way, Oh Mexico, Yuca, 5 Napkin, The Playwright….and of course, the BEACH and The Richmond’s lovely pool.
We arrived before noon Friday (6 am direct flight – so, so early, but so, so worth it to get there and start enjoying Miami stat). We changed out of our negative-10-degrees-in-Minnesota layers and into 70-degrees-and-sunny-South-Beach attire (oh, how pasty we were!) and immediately started wandering around. I cannot tell you how wonderful that warm air felt!
Our first stop: Oh Mexico for margaritas. (Duh.)
A walk on the beach Saturday morning. How lucky were we….how lucky for those who get to do that every morning!
We spent the afternoon poolside at The Richmond.
Seriously, the most relaxing afternoon ever. Vacation was just beginning, sitting under the palm trees and sunshine….the absolute best!
Later, we decided to walk all the way down the beach to the canal and watch any ships leaving Miami that day.
We waved goodbye to two.
Bon Voyage, Epic and Reflection!
Then, the long walk back.
On Sunday morning we meandered through the Lincoln Road Green Market – we saw this our very first year but hadn’t been back since.
Then it was time to head to the port!
Here we go!
Goodbye, South Beach!
The Glory was bound for Nassau….more on that in the next post!
