Don and I just returned from a fantastic 9 day trip to Florida.
Well, make that 7 days ... the first and last days were travel days and airports suck.
Come to think of it make that 5 days ... two days were spent in Miami and only one was fun because Tyler and her friend Allison came from Naples to hang out with us.
We flew into Miami, but the Keys were our destination. Since the Miami boat show was going on, we decided to stay a couple days to check it out and spend time with Tyler. I've never been to the show or Miami. Don has worked there several times in the past.
If you live in Miami or enjoy visiting there, forgive my opinion please. [smirk]
I'll start with the boat show. I PASS. Too many floating mansions that look like a big pain in the butt! The only thing missing was Thurston Howell, III and Lovey!
My real gripe? Let me start by saying, being from Detroit, Motor City, cars and crime ... Miami you win! I have never feared for my life on the road as much as I did trying to get around this city. Do people take a course in how to be rude while driving? Does my turning on a turn signal indicate time for you to speed up so I can't change lanes or make a turn? Every frickin' time? It got to be a joke. I'm probably considered an aggressive driver but Geez Louise, I felt like I was playing Highway Russian Roulette.
In Detroit, they may shoot at you while driving down the expressway but by golly, turn on your signal, they'll let you in and won't run you off the road.
I'll post more about our trip ... the rest, good times ... for the most part ;)
