LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY - Ocean Drive
I was staying at an airport hotel and I asked the information desk if there was a bus going there. I boarded the bus and was taken a long route around the airport and eventually a long route around the airport car parks. It got to the stage that I was the only person left on the bus. I asked the driver when will we be going to the hotel.
'Hotel, sorry mate this is the staff bus and I have a wait here for another 30 min.'
Welcome to Miami.
I got to the hotel eventually and was surprised or shall i say even pleased to see many young gorgeous girls milling around. I found out it was the annual Miss USA under 18 finals. Things were looking up. It got even better when I got in the lift and was squeezed tight by several sweet giggling young things.
I was in love with Miss Tallahassee, Miss Palm Springs and head over heels for Miss Kentucky.
I arranged a bus trip to visit all the sights of Miami and when I was picked up by the bus I was the only person on the tour. The driver was a very interesting guy. He was a fully trained Surgeon and had escaped from Cuba. He was doing this job as a tour guide to become proficient in English so he could get a job as a Surgeon in the States.
It was a pretty impressive tour especially the area called Coral Gables. It is a city within a city and is a vibrant arts community. It is home to beautiful international neighborhoods, historic Mediterranean architecture, a unique Venetian Pool, spectacularly shaded avenues, and dozens upon dozens of one-of- a-kind restaurants, boutiques, and hidden treasures. Definitely a place to visit if you ever go to Miami.
I also went to the Miami Rock Cafe and would you believe I still have the T- Shirt. I won't promise it still fits.
