Having barely seen any of Miami yesterday we got up fairly early and went for some English breakfast at Finnagen's on Ocean Drive before buying a Ball and heading to the beach. It was easily 30 degrees by midday and having not spent long in the sun since being here it wasn't long until we got in the sea to cool off. 

After a good 3 hours we thought it best to get back to the hotel to chill out as it felt like we had all caught the sun a bit. I decided on seeing what our hotel pool was like and found out there was a pool party with music n good value drinks, speaking to some locals they said we had 'lucked out' getting this hotel which was true, due to its prime location near bars, restaurants and the beach. Also gave a quick call back to the parents as I hadn't yet let them know I'd arrived. It was still red hot in the sun so got a bit of shade when Rich n Dave came down plus a few dips in the pool. What I hadn't realise was that I had neglected to re-apply suncream to my legs which was not so plesent when getting ready for our next and last evening out in Miami

Once ready and after catching up with a bit of the olympics we walked along the beach front to find a restaurant. The one we found had 2 for 1 on drinks (which is always a big selling point). The Long Island Ice Tea and Strawberry Margerita Rich and Dave ordered were about the size of a goldfish bowl. Having known this I wouldn't have ordered my Guiness which was pretty small and not as good as a pint in England, however I did help out after their second drink as Rich was pretty drunk due to the strength of his cocktail. Rich also purchased a CD & some yellow sunglasses of an artist who was promoting her CD while we had our meal. 

It was already pretty late after finishing here so went back to the bar we were at last night to see Matt and a few more 2 for 1 drinks (bit of a reccuring theme here). With us having to leave our apartment early the next morning we thought it best to only have a couple more so we could feel fresher in the morning and have a last chance to wander around Miami.
