We left DCA Saturday morning. A friend picked us up from the airport and we all went to Versailles, a well known Cuban restaurant, for lunch. After lunch we were dropped off at our hotel on South Beach. By early afternoon, we were catching some sun rays and swimming in the warm ocean.
People watching was also fun.
In the evening, we went to Bunbury restaurant with our friend and her boyfriend. Bunbury's empanadas each have a different filling and they were all delicious. Afterwards we headed over to Lagniappe house/wine bar. We had some drinks in the garden until a typical Miami rain shower made everyone run for the canapé covering the outdoor bar.
Sunday we started the day with another trip to the beach. Cooling off in the water while small fish swim around you is as good as it gets. At one point, few silver fish with yellow tails jumped above the water.
In the afternoon we went to downtown Miami for a stroll around the Bayside Marketplace. It's an interesting place with a lot of bars, restaurants and people walking around the marina.
In the evening, we joined our friends at the Lido Bar at the Standard Hotel in Miami Beach. The atmosphere was good but the view was even better.
