We’re on vacation! Beautiful fall colors, a break from work and music to enjoy!
With our hosts, Angie and Eric living in Miami Beach, we enjoyed a little walking tour of the Art Deco architecture and beach scene. Miami Beach is very influenced by the Art Deco era, with buildings reminiscent of ships, horizontal lines and “eyebrows” over the windows and colors hailing from the technicolor 80s of Miami Vice Miami Beach is definitely the place to be. Day or night, there are tons of places to eat, enjoy the sun or party.
We’re on vacation! We flew to Miami and are cruise bound. Tonight we went out with friends Eric and Angie from church who moved to Miami Beach. We had quite an adventure looking for a good local place to eat dinner and ended up at Angelique Euro Cafe in Coral Gables. We had a wonderful time and meal together eating out on the patio. I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 Course Prix Fixe: Montadito del dia, salad, seafood cioppino, and key lime cheesecake. It was wonderful! Thank you, Eric and Angie for hosting us during our stay!
We are spending a few days on vacation! yipee! Nothing too extravagant. We drove to Pittsburgh yesterday and today visited Altoona. John’s great great Aunt lived there and his family would visit her during the summer in the 70s and early 80s. John remembered the area where she lived so we drove up and down a few streets and using this picture found her old house. It’s changed a little since those days and has certainly grown older. We knocked on the door, but no one was home.
We visited an 18th century plantation house. This lady was our guide in the house. Beautiful views and I love how she is standing…
We are back from a week-long vacation! It has been awhile since we have gone anywhere and actually spent money on a vacation. So we jumped right in and went on a cruise this week. We sailed out of Miami and headed out into the Caribbean. It was such a great time to relax and not be connected to work or the internet. We ate well, too! I’ll be posting more pictures soon!
