So yesterday I decided to stop being a lazy beach/pool bum and go around Miami beach properly - slight inspired by the cycle of Tuesday night :)
I started of with the long(ish) walk down to ocean drive - ok so 16 blocks isn't long, but in 30 degree Florida sun it's a slightly sweaty affair! And went to a cool little diner for lunch - totally therefor tourists who want the 'American diner' experience and I embraced my grockle state fully! From there I went round the Art Deco district - though to be honest this wasn't anything spectacular and then found a tkmaxx. I definitely didnt buy shoes here at all.....
On the way back towards the hostel I stopped off in the little Italy street - a very strange site in the middle of Miami! And then headed to the holocaust memorial. It was nice to have some level of culture in the middle of the city. Miami really is the playground of the rich and famous (one of the guys saw Justin beiber last week - this is why I shouldn't turn down nights out lol) and its quite superficial. But this was a really nice monument with some factual stuff on the walls around it.
Was a 6 hour trip in the end, so today I'm being lazy and spending my last day on the beach! It's amazing how much I can get over my dislike of sand if it means there is a breeze and I can actually sit for more than 5 mins without melting!
Tomorrow, to New York!!
(Ill add a load of pictures from yesterday too)
