I scored confirmed upgrades on both flights down to Orlando.  It was quite a nice surprise going through ATL on a Thursday before a holiday weekend.  Thank you!  So this flight was way less eventful.  No spilled coke in the lap or any other mishaps.  Just a nice breakfast service and a comfy seat.
The drive down to Miami was not as bad as I feared.  I was just early enough to town, I think that I missed the evening rush hour.  I found the hotel with the help of google maps.  The property is very well located.  Across the street from the beach.  Street, park, sand, ocean. :) If I have to be across the street so much better it is a park.
I took a walk on the beach to stretch out my legs and see the sights. Amazing how many people will hang on the beach into the dinner hours when on vacation including myself.  I think I may just have to head over to there today to catch up on my reading and sleep.  But first things first.  This fair skinned boy needs sunscreen.  I found a grocery store and yes, I get the small concept, but people adjust your behavior.  You cannot waddle down the aisle and take up the whole space.  Stick to one side not both.
I really like the decor in my suite. The turquoise, browns and greens work.  And the simple modern fits me well. Though the sound proofing could be better.  I have the very first room up from the lobby and well, I can hear all the action. Luckily this is a small property and there is not all that much action. I guess that is what happens when you score the room 2 days before check-in.  The bed was comfy and I did not hear any late night partying or folks coming in loudly. So I am not worried about it in the least.
