Florida Exposure - Miami's South Beach

It's Day 2 of our quick trip to South Florida - We decided today’s destination would be Miami's famous South Beach - we walked along the beach and along Ocean Drive through the Art Deco district. Normally bustling with traffic, Ocean Drive has been converted to a pedestrian-only corridor. This configuration allows the restaurants to expand outdoor dining into the street and I have to say, it was nice not having the interference- physical and audio wise - while exploring. There is a naturalized barrier between Ocean Drive and the beach which buffers the beach area from the city. We found South Beach very pretty and enjoyable.

Cloudy day means we didn't get too hot and bake under the sun!

We enjoyed brunch at the Havana 1957 Restaurant with their yummy Cubano Sandwich.

Did you know - a Cubano Sandwich contains citrusy Cuban pulled pork, slices of ham, swiss cheese, mustard, thin slices of pickle, heated panini style between a sweet crusty (Cuban) bread.

 

 
Later in the day, we caught the South Beach strip as dusk settled in the sky and enjoyed the twinkly lights wound around the palm trees. A lovely way to end our day.
