Last night my husband and I returned to Michigan from a 4 day trip to Miami visiting my best friend Jody. We had a great trip. Jody and her boyfriend Ira showed us an amazing time. We stayed at her apartment which is in the heart of Miami. The view is so amazing. I kept singing; I’m in Miami Trick.
This was my second trip to Miami visiting Jody, my first visit was in June 2010. That was way too long to go without seeing my best friend.
Jody and Ira have a corner apartment so they have this amazing L shaped balcony, I could stand there all day and just watch the city.
We spent time at the pool and soaked up the sun.
The weather was perfect, it was 86 degrees during the day then it cooled down to 74 at night. The best part was the low humidity, we sure did pick a good time of the year to go.
We had a blast on a Swamp Boat Tour.
We met a local. He kept his distance, I was glad for that.
Got up close and personal with a local favorite named Lefty.
Had a blast fishing. We had a full day of catch and release, but just being on the ocean is such great way to spend the day.
We caught some beautiful fish.
Got really close to this guy, he was very friendly, until he realized we didn’t have any fish for him.
We toasted friendship and spent time catching up.
We toured the Allure of the Sea Cruise Ship.
We meet an officer of the ship. That was really fun.
He spent some time showing us around the ship.
We ate amazing food.
Lots of amazing food.
Every time I turned around Jody had another snack to keep us going.
Did I mention sushi, oh we ate lots of sushi.
I love sushi, it was so fresh.
We also had a few cocktails, it was a vacation after all.
Describing the size and the beauty of the Allure Cruise Ship would be impossible to do, it is just out of this world.
Dessert was a wonderful cupcake from the cupcake shop on the Allure of the Sea.
Going to see Jody and Ira was so much fun, they have an amazing life in Miami and I cannot wait to start planning our next trip. Maybe it will be a cruise?
