Wednesday, November 7, 2007 from Miami, FL
Got here safely yesterday afternoon and hit the beach for about an hour. Killer daiquri, great dinner and early to bed.
So, what do we say about Miami Beach? Small dogs with sequined sweaters. Thongs–Thankfully NOT on dogs. Hummers. Too many air conditioners. Nothing–not even the Starbucks–opens before 7 a.m. Well, we did find one Starbucks open at 6:30…a white rooster (on a bike) outside cock-a-doodle-doo’d for us too.
On the beach this morning at 8 a.m. Breezy, sunny, high 70s. Think we got a little sun.
Wasting time in a Starbucks in trendy Miami Beach…a few blocks from our Hotel Marseilles. Sad to be so jaded…but it’s “just” Florida–we are so anxious for the Antarctic. 😉
Got to be at the airport soon for an overnight flight to Santiago.
That should be fun. 8 hour 20 minute flight. And Bryan’s already restless–getting up to wander 3 times in just 3 hours on the beach. Atlantic Ocean today, crossing the Equator tonight and will see the Pacific Ocean tomorrow. Cool. Thanks to you all for your nice notes!
Hope to keep you posted.
Love, Carol and Bryan
