Miami, Florida is one of the most unique tourist destinations in the world! Its tropical weather, stupendous beaches, picturesque night scene, and international ambiance add to its pristine character.
My friend, Anica, is getting married so I decided to make a weekend getaway out of going to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Anica’s other girlfriends and I delighted in a tea-inspired bridal shower hosted by her sisters. We showered her with love, gifts, and well wishes in our dainty floral sundresses.
Over a delicious Haitian dinner from Alberte’s Restaurant in Oakland Park, my husband got acquainted with my treasured cousins. The evening was smothered with laughter, good food, and bonding. It was therapeutic as one of my love languages is quality time.
The Bayside Marketplace is home to many eclectic shops, restaurants, and souvenir shops. We enjoyed shrimp skewers for lunch at the famous Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant from the movie, Forest Gump. The well-known Indian Banyan tree, which is over a century old, can be enjoyed in the Bayside Marketplace as well.
I purchased a Groupon for our Fiesta Cruises excursion where we went on a festive, double-decker, catamaran boat with about 30 other passengers. Our hour and a half tour consisted of views of celebrity homes and other famous landmarks such as Star Island, The American Airlines Arena, and Fisher Island around South Beach. Two adult drink vouchers were included with admission. It was a nice treat to a serene cruise. Dolphins sporadically graced us in the turquoise water. It was a spectacular sight with the Miami skyline on the horizon. We fed tuna fish to tarpon fish with the Fiesta Cruise company as well. Tarpon fish are ray-finned fish which feed on small fish and crustaceans.
