Soaring Through the Sawgrass in the Everglades

The Everglades

The EvergladesThe Everglades National Park is everything you would imagine: miles of saw grass as far as the eyes can see, rivers running in every direction, and alligators swimming alongside airboats full of camera trigger happy visitors. My visit to the Everglades with my cousin was a success! We saw us some gators! Like the others, I too had my cameras (yes two cameras) locked and loaded and ready to “shoot” myself some gators! Not only did we see one gator, but four and a nest full of babies too. Continue reading

Touring Key West in a Day

Turquoise Thursday: Florida’s Key West

Key West

Bus

Key WestTaking a bus from Miami with Miami to Key West Bus was the perfect opportunity to see Key West in a day with my limited time in Florida. The 4 hour ride, 272 kilometres, from Miami was well worth the journey because Key West is one of the most beautiful U.S. turquoise destinations I have ever seen. The 14 hour tour provided transportation from my hotel in Miami Beach to Key West, with same day return. It was convenient not having to rent a car and drive myself; this way I was able to sit back, enjoy the ride, and see the sights along the way. When I was dropped off by the bus in Key West it was a short walk to Mile 0 where the U.S. highway begins (and ends in Maine). I was happy to arrive to America’s Caribbean island and its welcoming subtropical climate. Continue reading

South Beach Sunset

Photo of the Week- Again with my obsession with sunsets. I couldn’t help but share this one with you. It was incredible watching the sun go down behind the buildings and to see the sky light up around them.

New Air at Miami’s North Beach

Miami North Beach

Getting out of Miami’s South Beach to visit North Beach  for the day was a fresh breath of new air. North Beach has a completely different feel than South Beach. It has an entirely different “air” about it, then the rest of Miami’s hip and bustling beaches. It was well worth the venture to get out of South Beach for a quiet escape North of Miami.

Miami’s Turquoise South Beach

Turquoise Thursday

Turquoise Dream Destination: South Beach Miami

South Beach Miami

I’ve finally made it to another one of my dream beach destinations: Miami! Miami’s South Beach is one of the most turquoise USA beaches I have yet to see! Since I arrived in Miami late at night, I wasn’t able to see the beach until the next day. The first thing I did when I woke up in Miami was head straight to the beach (yes, even before breakfast). I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it for the first time. It was more turquoise than I expected and even better than I expected! Can you sense my excitement? Continue reading
