Today was the first time on this trip that we were able to get a clear view of the Atlantic Ocean. One thing that caught our eyes were the palm trees planted alongside the state highways. According to recent news articles, critics complained about the excessive highway landscape spending on Miami-Dade County. However, we believe they add a picturesque ocean community scene.
I would like to give my special "mahalo" to Laurie who gave us the Matiz Quince Paste from Andaluz, Spain. It goes well with the walnuts and cranberry bread we purchased from the Publix Market in Boca Raton. It made our breakfast very special.
The route we followed to A1A South.
We were seated next to the marina, but clearly Bruce's stories were much more captivating than the lovely views.
We were warned by some people to be avoid Homestead as this could be a "rough neighborhood." Our fears were quickly dispelled when we came to the gated RV park resort complete with secured entry and 24 hours security guards.
There was a handout that if you walk its entire paved areas, it will be a total of 4 miles. Perhaps if it's not too hot tomorrow morning, I'll go for a quick walk.
Our Honu is settled on a grassy pad tonight complete with small hummingbird feeders hanging on the tree branch next to her.
This photo of our front yard was taken at about 6:00 pm when the sun was still high.
