Miami in January: Boat Tour

Hey, y'all.  Having a good week?  It's cold and rainy here (and will be all week) - yuck.  The good thing is I'm teaching my favorite unit in class this week, so that'll help with the dreariness. :-)

I wanted to blog over the weekend, but just didn't find the time (between resting and being lazy). I'm back now, though, and hope to get the rest of the trip posts out this week. 

Let's talk Biscayne Bay today. 

I love being a tourist no matter where I am or how many times I've been somewhere. We've never really done anything touristy in Miami (unless you count South Beach and the children's museum), so I was glad when we decided to do a boat tour along Biscayne Bay.

It was pretty cool learning a little more about Miami and seeing the seasonal homes of some celebs. The biggest mansion on Star Island didn't belong to a famous person (though he's very wealthy) -- it belonged to the guy who created Viagra. Ha!

We also got an outside view of the super-exclusive Fisher Island, where Oprah, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, and other mega celebs have a home.  Interestingly (but unsurprisingly), Fisher Island has the highest per capita income of ANY place in the United States. 

Here are some random pics:

The weather was just amazing.

Waiting to board with friends and fam.






"No nap" blues. 








We had a great time on the tour.   On the next Miami trip, I hope to tour Vizcaya (so beautiful).  The Everglades, too (though alligators freak. me. out.).

Anyhoo, hope everyone's having a great week. Be back soon.

Love,
G

P.S. Happy 105th to Alpha Kappa Alpha (from an inactive member). :-)
