Key West and Miami

Hey guys! Hope you are all having a good weekend! After days and days of rain, the sun has finally poked through the clouds and it's quite mild - like +10 C. The snow is melting, but there is still a lot of it left to go! I have some windows open for the first time in a long time and I bought some tulips, so it's starting to feel a smidgeon like spring!

My sister and brother-in-law fly back to KSA (Saudi Arabia) today. They've been in Canada for a few weeks and it was good to see my sister. My bro-in-law was only in Ontario and I didn't get to see him. Today was supposed to be the "day of rage" in KSA, but it didn't amount to much. Hopefully, things will remain stable there.

Am going down to see mom tomorrow and get her stocked back up on her favourites. She was been basically pretty good lately with just her usualy complaints of arthritis.

Here's some more pics of Key West and Miami. We're still wishing we were back there. The other day Brad was pinning for the beach to run on rather than icy, slushy sidewalks! Oh, I just about forgot! We definitely could have gone back for another week or so had I had one more number in the lotto the other night! I was one number away from winning $35,000! As it turned out, I ended up with $700, so I'm not really complaining, but the 35 grand would have been much nicer!


One of the hosts on our Sunset Cruise in Key West. I don't think she had one ounce of body fat!


Our captain, Mike I think his name was. He didn't have a lot of body fat either!


Some of the wine on offer


Rigging the sails


The sun is setting


Ever farther


A place we stopped for lunch on our drive back to Miami - On Isla Morada, I think


Ahhh... South Beach.. and the boyz!


Probably the best beach I have been on to date. Beautiful water, great for swimming (and taking in the sights!)


The large white tents in the backgound is where the SoBe Food and Wine Festival was held. We went on Sunday and had a blast!


The rest are pretty much self-explanatory... Unfortunately for our straight male friends, the day that all the curvy gals were on the beach, we forgot our camera! Sorry guys!

Even $700 is not bad at all! And all the nice warm blue ocean beach definitely is great!

OMG! I haven't been checking blogs in a long while.

I has only one word to about the scenery on the beach:

Ta-BAR-naK!!!

Spoken as a Montrealer. :)

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
