Walked around South Beach in the morning, coffee at the News Cafe.

A long walk again in the afternoon.

To the dive shop at the Marina, some shopping at Ross, Burger King ( bad)

Walked back to the Wyndham Garden.

Across the street is a great French bakery with brilliant cheesecake wich i ate at the loungers around the hotel.

Guys wanted to chill in the room so i went out to shop and a nice walk.

Had a funny time at the vote for Obama shop with a lovely friendly guy.

After a good shower we went to Fuji Japanees buffet, ok for the price you pay.

Food was not very warm.

Did some very strong Bacardi and Coke at Mac club Deuce, good way to end a long but great day.

Yesterday we went by bus to the airport, a taxi to Dolphin mall.

Had a great lunch at Taverna Opa.

Shopping was nothing special, no real outlet prices and some things even more expensive than in Holland.

Back to the hotel by taxi.

To Club Deuce for a pre dinner drink, we didn"t make it to dinner it was happy hour :P

Had a good time hanging out there.

Went without any food and enough drinks to Lincoln Road for Halloween, brilliant.

Back to the hotel and stopt for some fried chicken, my god they were perfect.

Last smoke outside and boy i was happy to see my bed.

Long but good day.

For the record, the 11th Street Diner is an authentic originalL American diner. It was pulled down here some years ago from its original spot in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

We survived club deuce and Halloween so yesterday it was a lazy day, after breakfast we went down to the Dive shop on Washington ave, a friend is going to dive on saterday at Key Largo and we will go with him to hang around on the boat and do some snorkling, so we booked it and walked to the News Cafe on Oncean Drive for a cup of coffee.

Hanged out on the beach till lunch time, had a brilliant lunch at 100 Montaditos ( thanks TA for the good ideas)

Went back to the hotel for some hrs around the pool.

Hubby did some chilling and the friend who's traveling with us and i went out for some shopping around Lincoln Road.

Shower and dressed up for dinner, we weren't realy that hungry so we ended up at the cheeseburger baby.

Did a good walk around Ocean Drive and ended the day wit a lovely ice cream from Leccalecca.

Long but another good day in paradise.

Friday, after breakfast we did some shoppings at wallgreens and the guy who is with us went out to dive ( very bad experience he had, they just let you do your own thing and didn't take care about the safety of the people)

We stayed around the pool and walked back to 100 Montaditos to get some lunch, i love that place, great quality and very very inexpensive.

Back to the pool for a few hrs.

Hubby went to the room and 1 walked to Love and Hate Lounge to look for the location, hubby ran in to Ami James a few day's ago and they guy was cool and took his time to make a picture, sounds simple but who knows how many pictures with tourist the guy has taken.

Did some brilliant shopping for my daughter back home.

Showered and dresses up and walked to Lincoln Road where we had a perfect filet mignon with garlic chrimp at Nexxt Cafe, perfect service.

Walked back to the hotel and stopped by a Irisch pub to get a last drink.

Friend is gonna dive today so we didn't make it that late.

Weather is great, hotel on a perfect location and staff is very friendly and helpfull.

Saterday, went to Key Largo with Ocean Divers, great dive school.

Had a wonderfull day, did some snorkling and one of the guy did some dives, much much better organised than the day before with another dive school.

We were back late and it was to late to go to the food truck festival, realy would have like to go there.

So after shower we had a dinner at David's Cafe, ok but nothing special and small portions, srevice and friendlyness could be better or we had just the wrong waiters.

Still hungry walked around Washington Ave to buy some of the great fried chicken we had on Halloween night.

Hubby ran in to Yogi Harada from Miami Ink, he is a hugr fan of the tv show so it was nice the guy took his time for a little small talk and picture.

Walked back to the hotel and had a last smoke outside and did some talking with 2 young Dutch girls who arrived a few days ago.

Long day but it was woth it.
