Out and About: Miami Style

Last week, I had to make a last minute trip to Miami for business.  Terrible, I know.  I had some fabulous food, great meetings, entertaining people watching and unbelievable weather.  

Here's some of what went on:

Upon arriving in Miami, I had to try Sushi Samba on Lincoln Road. Yum!
I then found my way over to the convention center where I attended meetings at the Miami International Boat Show
I did manage to get in a couple of hours in the sun. 
And even saw this man walking down the street with no pants.  Only in Miami.
I had to make a stop by Dash Miami.  Unfortunately, the "Dash Dolls" weren't too nice to me.  :( 
I can't tell you the number of Bentleys I saw.  Amazing! 
And there's nothing better than sitting on Ocean Drive, enjoying a Starbucks and people watching.  
Then I saw a cruise ship pass outside my hotel room.  Lucky people.
And my last morning, I enjoyed a run on the boardwalk and had this incredible view. 
I really enjoyed my 2 days in Miami, but I was ready to get home to Fred and Knox.  Now, it's back to the real world and I just miss the weather.  

So, what have you been up to?  

Don't forget to enter my giveaway.  It ends tonight at 11:59pm.

Oooo Miami! I want to go to Dash!! They weren't nice to you? What the heck happened? Can you believe that in the 27 years that I've been a Floridian, I've never actually BEEN to Miami, just driven through. But it was beautiful!

The Dash dolls never seem to be nice when I visit. I stop trying. Doesn't the store look bigger on TV?

I am glad you had a fun time!
