It’s been almost a month since my trip to Miami to visit my roommate Andrew along with our friends Ann and Daniela who live in the apartment below us. I finally downloaded my camera and I was going to create a Facebook album but then I realized I should just do a blog post photo album.

Our first day was amazing. It had just started to warm up in New York, and ironically on Thursday, March 15, when I arrived, Miami threatened intermittent rain showers. But that just made it more exciting. We stopped at a deli on our way home from the airport and enjoyed a breakfast of an enormous plate of challah french toast and a giant chef’s salad.

That afternoon, we boarded the longed-for jetski and careened over the waves in the bay that is practically Andrew’s backyard.

Here are some photos from that adventure:

ImageWe stopped for lunch at a tiny, uninhabited island directly across the bay from Andrew’s house. As we anchored the jetski and explored the palm trees on the island, we felt that we were in Lord of the Flies.


The jetski can hold three people at a time, but with all of the food we were bringing over for our picnic, we thought it safer to do two at a time. So Andrew dropped me off at the island first and I waded ashore.

Then Andrew tied the jetski to a palm tree, so that it wouldn’t float off in the bay and leave us stranded!

A narrow strip of land connected our island to another one next to it.

We walked as far as we could, but Andrew warned us that with the rising tide, we might lose our footing on the way back.

On the way there, we found some interesting wildlife.

I’m not sure what these guys are, but Ann and Andrew found them lying on the shore.

And I found this crazy guy!

Here’s a view of our island. You can even see the jetski docked there.

It was a bit of a rainy day, but that was the only day it rained of the trip!

    That is my kind of paradise. I bet the water was real warm, too. Love Gma.
