We never saw any flamingos, and it wasn't until weeks later ...

... gift - froggy Bruno figure at a small store for dad.

We were in Miami a little over 2 hours and then headed to the Gator Park. I did a lot of research about which gator tours to take and Gator Park always have good ratings. The tour was fun.
