Happy Friday eve all! We spent day 2 touring Miami on the Island Queen (Star Island!) and shopping at Lincoln Road, South Beach and the Festival Flea Market.
Before I get started on my Part 2 recap, I have to say you all had me cracking up with your comments on this week’s Wordless Wednesday ~ The “Smart” Cop Car still has us laughing every time we see.
We woke up on Sunday (on West Coast time LOL) to the most beautiful sunset. We quickly threw on our shoes and ran down stairs to beach.
I think morning time is the ONLY time that nobody is on the beach. The Time Share was right on Pompano Beach….We spent each morning with a beach walk.
The narrated tour is 90 minutes and you get to see the beautiful downtown Miami skyline, the Port of Miami, Fisher Island, Miami Beach and "Millionaire’s Row" – aka “Star Island”.
My BETTER half 😀
Plus me too!
I think I had a thing for taking pictures of boats because I think I took them of every type they had on the water.
Miami Sky Line
So, we took pictures of like every house we passed on Star Island and now have no clue whose house it was 😀 We can remember some names like Will Smith, Gloria Estefan, Shaq’s Old House, P. Diddy, The Guy Who Invented Viagara…BIG House and Growing 😉 LOL
Anyway, for what it’s worth, here are just a few the pictures of the “Star’s” houses 😀
This picture totally summarizes the weather we had while we were in Florida ~ It was totally HOT and HUMID, but, cloudy and sunny like every day. I LOVE the clouds!
The Farmer’s Markets in Florida are really different from the ones in California for sure. It was fun seeing the local “tropical” fruits.
These AVOCADOS are my favorite! We always buy at least one when we go to the Caribbean. California Haas Avocados are delicious, but, these are HUGE and a little nuttier:D
Amanda and her husband, David, met up with us again this trip. WE LOVE them – they are so nice and funny. They were our personal tour guides letting us know all the cool things to do while in Florida ~ Thanks, we totally had a blast!!! Amanda – you both need to work out in California next 😉
I WISH I wore my pedometer on Sunday because we walked and walked for hours down Lincoln Road, South Beach and then at the Festival Flea Market before we plopped back down on the Pompano beach to recover.
We ended the day with a sunset that was almost as beautiful as the sunrise.

Have a great Friday all and an even better 3-day weekend!
