FLOATING IN THE SALTY WARM ATLANTIC...
There is nothing quite like being able to swim in the Atlantic's salty water in Miami. Although I've been dipping into the Pacific since I've been home, it is just so much colder.
EATING AT the Cafe at BOOK&BOOKS...
WADING THROUGH THE ROOMS OF BOOKS...
|[every magazine you'd want to read]|
|[a room of travel books that will make you check your passport's validity]|
|[a beautiful book I found]|
|[and a favorite new poem]|
You can't leave Book & Books without a pile of magazines or books or at least a list of books to buy when you get home so that you don't have to lug them home.

HOTEL HOPPING FROM THE DELANO...
TO THE SHORE CLUB...
|[the lantern lit patio]|
The hotels in Miami are amazing! It doesn't matter where we stay I always like doing a little hotel hopping. Each one is so different and so inspiring. There is always something that I want to implement in my house once I get home. Some are teeny boutique hotels that have been there forever, most are newly renovated, some are brand new (but not many).
THE EVOLUTION FROM THE BEACH IN THE SUN...
TO A STORM
Watching the way the beach goes from sunny and humid and packed with people and then empty and dark come afternoon is so intriguing. It's especially funny when you are on the beach and hear a rumble of thunder and watch everyone go running to get off the sand before the rain comes. Even the rain there doesn't bother me though because it is warm and fleeting.
