Where I stayed
On my last night in Miami Beach (Monday) I went to a bar called Wet Willies on Ocean Drive with some people from the hostel and got an apple flavoured slush puppy cocktail (no idea what was in it!) - tasted quite nice though getting home at midnight wasn't my best decision when my taxi was booked for 530am. Up bright and early for my first trip on the Greyhound - hmmm, maybe an exaggeration but I did get up...when the taxi driver arrived
Transferred to the local bus in Sarasota and, after I reassured him I didn't think he was going to the airport, was on my way to Siesta Key which is just as beautiful as I remember. Got settled in with Grace and Graham, had a wee look around some shops then walked along the beach to go for fish and chips at the Old Salty Dog - absolutely delicious!
On Wednesday we went to the beach in the morning (absolutely boiling hot as there was no breeze) then headed up to Ellenton to the Outlet shopping centre where I got a lovely candy floss flavoured ice cream and some bargain shorts in the adidas shop. After a BBQ dinner we went over the road to the beach to watch a beautiful sunset. Thursday we went to see The Proposal at the pictures (very good, Sandra Bullock is so funny) then I got a long overdue haircut!
After some delicious bacon and eggs I got on my travels again this morning - first the local bus back to Sarasota then up to Tallahasse via Tampa, change of bus over to Mobile then the final change to New Orleans, arriving 22 hours later! Phew!
