Where I stayed
I realised that I needed to get my map reading skills up to speed so would practice. The girls decided they wanted to go and see the art deco part of Miami. Lisa said all Floyds did things on foot so we would be walking. I didn't mind but knew we had to get a march on before the heat really ramped up. It all looked good on the map. We could see the American Airlines stadium and the Venetian way to the South Beach Island. Over the highway, past three cruise ships and across several car parks and towards some industrial looking cranes it didn't look so promising
A $20 cab ride later settled the score and it was the Miami beach. Anne tried to have a photo outside Versace's house but got a polite "Eff off" from beebop the security guard. The water was so warm that I had to go for a dip. It's wasn't quite Daniel Craig, in fact not even Uncle Bryn off Gavin and Stacey but it was a good dip. This set me up nicely for a further cooking on the beach as we strolled down for a good 45 minutes.
By the time we got back to the hotel I had been labelled a prat for my careless approach to not applying sun tan lotion evenly. The photos will speak for themselves.
Lisa: I have felt the need to intervene at this point to make sure that you are all fully aware as to the severity of our de tour today
After Ray asked a customs officer as to which direction we should be heading we managed to get back on track. But the additional (and unplanned) 5 miles had taken their toll, so a taxi it was.
Miami beach was lovely and we decided that another visit would be necessary at some point, I have also decided that if my premium bonds come up (thanks to AZ), I shall be procuring a boat/harbour side condo. After the dip on the beach we realised just how hot it was and headed back. On a visit to a chemist we realised just how burnt Andrew had got, I gave him a motherly stare and told him he was a prat for not putting cream on, and only he would go out in 90 degree heat without putting much lotion on. Readers, I cannot emphasise enough, just how red he is......
We're off to the pool now, Andrew has been given strict instructions to stay undercover at all times.
Quote of the day:
Andrew: Shit, I didn't see Lost on TV before I went.
Lisa: Oh don't tell me what happened I haven't seen it.
