Road trip to south Florida

We headed down to the Miami area for a long weekend in early March to visit relatives. On a cool cloudy day, we headed to a small craft show and farmer’s market in Coral Gables. Lots of old building on the street were the farmer’s market was.



After running around Miami for the day, we came back to Hallandale Beach where Brett’s relatives live for a quick walk on the beach before dinner.





The beach on the Atlantic side is very different from the gulf side of Florida. The water is greener but rougher and more waves. The sand is not as white as the gulf side. The entire stretch of beach in Hallandale is full of tall buildings. It wasn’t a nice day out but at least it was cool out.  We were one of the few people out on the beach.





Brett’s aunt and uncle live on the intercoastal waterway. The boat traffic through here is usually busy but the clouds and wind must have kept most people at home.

We try to get down to south Florida at least once each winter. It’s any easy drive down from Tampa and very different from where we live. So many different places to eat and they have the best dim sum which is Brett’s favorite thing to eat. Dim Sum with the cousins before leaving on Sunday afternoon is our routine.
