postcard from america

Staying in Fort Lauderdale offered me the opportunity to take a coach trip to Miami and in particular, South Beach (SoBe), with its sugar-white sand and beautifully preserved Art Deco buildings along Ocean Drive. Before we got there though we took a trip out into Biscayne Bay from where we could see the wonderful skyline of Downtown Miami itself and the fabulous millionaire properties”

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. “Biscayne Bay, where the Cuban gentlemen sleep all day, I went searching for the song you used to sing to me”.
    From ‘Dr Wu’, my favourite Steely Dan song. 🙂
    I would like to see those Art Deco buildings some time.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I don’t know that song, or do I? Might need to look it up. I shall put together a post about the Art Deco buildings for you and PP 🙂

    1. Boiling? Hazy here today, rain yesterday – back to the usual Cornish weather it seems 🙂 I noticed that Doncaster has been very hot!

        1. Bit of a surprise, that one. Raf was made to work hard, unlike the effortless, glide around the court Mr. F, yesterday. 🙂

    1. I will give it a go. Didn’t get very good photos along Ocean Drive though. Difficult to get the buildings in frame as lots of cars and people and restaurants along there.
