We went on a nighttime boat ride to see Miami at night! Beautiful!!! It was a really amazing ride.

Here's a sign I saw on the trip! We didn't see any manatees, but we saw a few of these signs!

Here's Miguel, Sara, and Mom!

Our Solo Adventure!

On Monday, Sara had to go back to work, so Mom and I were on our own. We ventured up the A1A, which we though would take us up towards Tallahasee. It didn't.

Here is a cool bathroom building. There were many of them in all different colors! Kinda different.

A view of Miami from the car.

Some of the many palm trees in Florida. I didn't realize there were so many different varieties of palm trees. Miami is in the background.

One of the many "Rich" Islands. People with lots of money build houses on these Islands.

Here's where Sara now works! She just started on Monday. It's a daycare center/after school program called Fun Club. She's been working Saturdays there for a couple of months and the owner wanted her to work full-time.

Coral Castle

Beautiful Coral Castle in Miami, FL. It's not really a castle as much as it is a rock garden! This place was built by a 5 ft, 100 lb man named Ed. This place was amazing!! Nobody knows how he did it, because nobody ever saw him work. If you are ever in Miami, this place is a must!
The side of the castle. This is where he dug up the pieces of coral.

These are the steps leading up to Ed's room. He lived here in a little tiny room. He housed all of his tools in a little room right below his room.

When it was complete, he charged people 10 cents to visit.

Here's mom taking some of the many pictures both she and I took. The planets and the moons you see in the background are carved from the same piece of coral as the wall they sit on. Crazy Amazing!!

Ed did live here and he built the three chair for reading. The one on the right is for reading in the morning, so the sun is shining over his shoulder. The chair in the middle is for reading at noon when the sun is directly overhead. The chair on the left is for reading in the afternoon when the sun is shining over his shoulder. Sara and mom sat in these chairs and said they were actually very comfortable!!! They liked the afternoon chair the best!
