Key West and Miami   Leave a comment

In our continuing hunt for getaways involving sandy beaches — especially important as Leah gets ready to head off to London — Leah and I took a few September days to enjoy some sun in Key West and Miami. We spent the weekend in Key West, staying in a cute AirBnB just off the lively Duval Street. I showed Leah a few traditional Key West highlights: the southernmost point in the continental United States, the nightly sunset celebration in Mallory Square, and of course a few encounters with the wandering chickens. We also enjoyed the regional delicacies of Key Lime Pie on a stick and drinks in coconuts.

On Monday, we drove back up to Miami, where we stayed at the Grand Beach Hotel Surfside. Here, Leah introduced me to the Ocean Drive club scene at the Clevelander, and we enjoyed some relaxing beach time. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short by the impending Hurricane Florence. We were able to catch an earlier flight back to North Carolina to avoid the storm, and can’t wait for our next sandy beach adventure.
