Life really is wonderful. The way that things come together always seems amazing and miraculous to me!
My bloggy friend Mona is in Miami Beach for a conference and invited me for a night at the Eden Rock Hotel. I met Mona when she was in China this summer and now here. I love how blogging has introduced me to so many awesome people!
We went for a walk on the beach as the moon rose and I didn’t get a single picture, lol. Left the iPhone in the room. We had a lovely dinner beachside and I got this pic of the moon light glittering in the rough surf…
Then a long chat about all the taboo topics and then a wonderful nights sleep listening to the waves crash and the winds blowing in through the open slider.
Up before the sun and down to the beach…
Here comes the sun little darlin’…
And finally, it doesn’t matter how much crap life throws at you, sitting on the beach makes it all better!
Sounds like you had a wonderful time and those pictures are amazing!!!!
Oh, I’m still having a wonderful time. Wrote this just now while lounging in the sun beachside 🙂 It’s a BEAUTIFUL day!
Wish i were there with u, relaxing!
love the cute toes shot! you are doing so well back in the USA! Our packers come on Wednesday. Ahhhh!
Next Wednesday!! That came up quick! How long will you be in China?
At least 3 years.. you never really know for sure!
Wow! Good luck!
I agree with you Sandi . . . . sitting on the beach DOES always make it all better!
🙂 I’m sitting on the hotel balcony, sun kissed from the morning, winds blowing, curled up on a chaise watching my Miami Dolphins play football. It is all better!
Oh for warmth…but I do like running in the chill!!! Hope you have had a refreshing time!!
It was wonderful!
my beach lovin’ friend you could not be more accurate! Life is always bettah at the beach 🙂
Stay safe in the storm my friend!
What glorious pics, you must be having a ball…
It was definitely a fun couple days! Welcome to my blog 🙂
Always look forward to your posts and photos. Glad you had a lovely, relaxing time at the beach. So what’s the plan now?
Well, I’m back at work this morning 🙂 But I think I need to schedule in some beach time once per week… it has certainly made my Monday better!!!
Did you feel the effects of Sandy? Love your getaway photos! I wonder why, when I am only a five min. drive from the beach, or a 12 min. bike ride, I don’t go down there every day, but, I rarely get there. – Kaye
We had rain and winds for a couple of days (Weds. evening through Saturday noon.) it’s beautifully cool here and the sky is an insane blue!
I am also 5 minutes from the beach, but when you work, you don’t have the time to go hang out… I’m intentionally planning on spending an hour
a week there!
wonderful photos — looks like an amazing time!
It was a lovely 24 hours! Very renewing 🙂
You got this up long before I did! Love the pic of me with the couple in the background. I’ve been busy cleaning up messes left by my students in my absence, but I’ve played with a lot of pics. Your sun salute that I sent you via email … care if I post it? More pics of you to come.
I so thoroughly enjoyed our visit! I hope that our paths cross again.
Love ya, sister … OK I could put on the persona: Love ya, Sistah!
I had a great time hanging with you! Post all the pics you want 🙂 We had a couple beautiful days at the beach 🙂
By the way, I want all of Sandi’s friends to know that while she was toasting her toes in the warm Miami Beach sun, I was holed away in the nether regions of the hotel resort, sans sun, studying new and improved ways to teach my freshmen. What’s your vote? Does Sandi owe me a mini-vacation?
LOL… I totally owe you a mini-vaca… maybe next summer I can pick you up and we go sun our toes in the sand in California 🙂

Love the Pics. I soooo miss the Ocean. Maybe next time I’m down I’ll get over there. ❤ Mom
