Newbies In Paradise

Let me introduce you to Ms. Julie Hirschy and Mr. Kay Dupri. This was their first time visiting South Beach Miami, riding on a cruise ship, and visiting the Bahamas. It was clearly a trip of firsts for them.

What I enjoyed most about this getaway, outside of the relaxation and sun tan (hey, I needed it), was experiencing this vacation through their eyes. I got so much enjoyment watching their faces light up and beam with excitement. To top it all off, I was able to bring 5 newbies on this trip. Talk about making memories, we did that.

Today, as I reflect on our time together, each one of their lives has been touched. They faced their fears, opened their horizons, and solidified a plethora of new lifelong friendships. That brings me so much fulfillment knowing that I'm helping someone else improve their life in some way. We may never know the ripple effects that come from these types of experiences. Amazing!

"A day isn't wasted if a memory is created." It's time to start living. Let's get it!

Roasted Margarita Chicken from Mango's Tropical Cafe in South Beach Miami

Roasted Margarita Chicken from Mango's Tropical Cafe in Miami, Florida

After walking to the beach and then the South Beach strip, we caught up with friends and then sat down at Mango's Tropical Cafe for a bite to eat.

I ordered the Roasted Margarita Chicken, which was a half chicken marinated, roasted and grilled to a golden crispness served with yellow rice, black beans, and sweet plantains. Yummy!

First Night on South Beach Illuminated By Neon Lights

To begin our story, we have to go back to Thursday night when we arrived at South Beach Miami.

After dropping my bags off in the room, Kay, Julie, and I decided to take a walk to the beach, which is right across the street from the hotels. The sun was quickly setting and we were running out of daylight. As the sun disappears, Miami's night life begins to shine with neon lights. In this view, the beach is behind us and we're looking at the various restaurants and bars that line the strip.

It's quite common to see some very expensive cars and even celebrities strolling down the street. Each time I visit, there are a little of both present and accounted for.

Just Arrived in South Beach Miami

Good evening, y'all! I made it safely into South Beach Miami after a short 2-hour flight. First stop, Hotel Shelley to drop my bags off in the room. Next up, an authentic Cuban dinner next to the ocean.

Due to limited technical resources, most of my pictures will be fourth coming. Stay tuned ... they are coming!
