This is a picture of our resort. Our room was waaayyy up there on the 24th floor. BEAUTIFUL views of the ocean and of North Miami.
This was my favorite spot at the resort. It was near the pools, but high enough to get a great view of the ocean and feel the ocean breeze. One day I literally spent 8 hours in this same chair. It was dreamy.
We did have one 'fun day' where we drove inland and went on an Everglades Air-Boat tour. So much fun! My favorite part was just driving fast through the everglades, but it was also cool to have a pretty close encounter with a mama gator protecting her nest!
This guy was crazy. He would do all kinds of tricks (stupid ones) with the gators. He was missing part of one finger, and had a fresh gash on his arm along with scars all over his legs. Eek!
We had a GREAT vacation! We definitely miss the ocean breeze and beautiful views, but we are back home where we belong (with west Texas winds and Big Country views!). We missed the boys WAY more than they missed us. Thanks to all of our families for their help!
