Some more diversion from Winter and the Best Part!

No scrolling to the end to see the best part! lol ;)

Next we were in Key Largo and our room opened up to the water and dock.

Our room.

Sunset on the water.

That is Route 1 there in the background.

The resort across the way.

Party boat!


A tiny little beach.

Gilbert's Resort

Oh, No!!!!!!

Breakfast with the locals. I had my most favorite Southern breakfast. Sausage, biscuits, and gravy. :)

 Shell World! Yes! :)

and back on the road again! Look at the color! I love it. 

"Bienvenido a Miami"

Cruise ship!

 Palm trees on roof tops.

Miami Beach.

I was completely smitten.

A quick trek down to the Atlantic Ocean and I stuck my toes in the water. Not cold.

The beach is on one side of the road and the city is on the other.

Miami Beach is known for it's Art Deco architecture.

Hubby wanted to stop in the Art Deco Museum Gift Shop. I was just like, okay.....

And, then I found this! Oh, my  goodness!!! Glad I snapped this picture so quickly, no photography was allowed. This was the best part of the entire trip. 

Next it was Cuban sandwiches at Larios. I have made these same folded napkins in miniature. That just struck me as funny.

Talk about "green" buildings. ;)

Cool tree.

Back to the airport.

The best part about going away, is going back home again. Relaxed and inspired.

So, you wanna see what I brought home with me? 

From Shell World of course, I bought some shells. See what a frugal purchase that was? One can never have too many shells.

And, the best of the best, the creme de la creme,

Pièce de résistance

Frugality was promptly thrown out the window.
You know I grabbed that middle chair first and mostly because of it's rose colored seat.

While I did splurge, I was still practical. I could have purchased any three pieces, like the round chair or the lip couch... but, I knew I would get the most use out of these pieces.

I am so in love with them and they have proved to not only be inspiring, but also motivating.

Thanks for letting me bore you with my vacation photos. :)
