Where I stayed
It's beautiful down here. We made our way down from Titusville, first pit stop Miami beach (South Beach) and some soaking up the sun. A lovely white sand beach on the Atlantic and the water was warm enough for a dip and the sun shining and begging for some sun baking. Miami Beach was quite busy for a week day, everyone trying to stave off winter for as long as they can.
To stick with the relaxed atmosphere we went JET SKIING! Ha, ha. Bek has always wanted to give this a try so why not in the gorgeous Keys. What a blast, the Gulf side of the Keys was calm and perfect for whipping around on the Jet Ski - we managed to go 50 miles an hour which is 80km! Woop, woop. Bek also managed to roll us at about 65kmph which wasn't so woop, woop. But it was water, so we bounced a bit, splashed in and were on our way again. As part of the Jet Skiing we joined a tour that took us completly around the island and detailed some of the history of the area. It was totally awesome.
We totally enjoyed our time in Southern Florida and can definitely see ourselves back here for future adventures. We've got to head North again but we think we have enough vitamin D to last us a little while longer.
Love to you all, the tanned, Bek and Jesse train
