Time to get moving!

We had spent our last night in the Wyndham Resort (do we have to go!?) and had to get back into that crusty old RV of ours and get a move on.
Turn left, turn left!!!! No Dad, turn right!!! Oh the stress of driving through narrow streets of the city with my Dad….. We arrived (finally) in Miami….throughout the numerous honks from impatient drivers… and a security escort to a car park that would suit our type of vehicle (don't try to park in a cramped park Dad!). Our aim was to find someplace to stay and get some shopping done. Somewhere to stay……… the car park, great idea Dad… :D      get some shopping done…..well when we reached Miami, we didn't realise that there were several different malls in the area, and the one that we had stopped at didn't have the right shop for us…….so after some friendly help from another tourist, who helped us find the right shop at the right mall we stopped in the car park, but wasn't to do any shopping till much later.  

The car park that we had stopped in was right next to the car garage which we needed in the morning, so worked out a pretty good campsite for the night. Later on we did shopping alright, left our "campsite" at 9:00 pm and walked for miles in the pitch black, crossing main roads (kids, don't try that at home!), crossing another car park, there are thousands of car parks (any one could get lost around here!)  and getting lost like always, we reached our destination. After hours (well it seemed like hours) of treacherous shopping, Hannah and me trying on every different pair of sunnies we could find to make time go (I can just hear those cash registers going,  "chi-ching") we decided that we better be getting back to the RV. It was about 12:00 am before we started heading back to the RV. Imagine, 2 adults with 7 crazy kids, pulling 2 full-to-the brim shopping trolleys (by the way- the shopping trolleys over here must have some sort of sense because every time we took them too far away from the shop, they would start jamming up…), in the middle of the night, trying to find out where they were…..no wonder the security was after us…..for the second time that day.

Anyway, the security patrol escorted Dad to the RV so he could drive it up to pick us up, of to our "campsite" we go! Thank goodness we have security guards…. for once I was glad we had them, if the security hadn't found us, we probably would have never found our way back to the carpark! :D we finally got to bed, at 1:00 am.
