We were in some of the most amazing places and could barely up for air to enjoy them.
It is so not how we like "vacationing".
Our return home would make the trip down look like leisurely stroll.
We would hit Miami long enough for Skye to get an inkling of what the city's about and for me to briefly see one of my best friends from high school who I haven't seen in 20+ years.
On your mark get set goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Each time we think, it will be our last time there, so we always live it up.
It's a much easier city when Hollywood is footing the bill.
That said, we were not going to deny Skye a "South Beach" experience, which for a 13-year old foodie takes on a somewhat different experience.
What made this experience so memorable was that we ended up at a South Beach mecca that neither Cindy or myself had made it to on our many trips down.
For 99 years, no visit to Miami has been complete without stopping in at Joe's Stone Crab. From the beginning, it has always been the love of food, family, and friends that has brought in customers and kept them coming.
Apparently we've had more than a dozen incomplete trips down here.
After our dinner, it would be hard to argue.
This one being one that both of us had enjoyed in the past, together and on our own.
I don't know if it was a sign of getting older or us being burnt out or that the Delano no longer was "cool" but the place that was beyond hip in past years seemed behind the curve to say the least.
Still beautiful, just not as cool as we remember.
