We're still in Texas at our son's house...but I figured out how to get pix on my blog without loading them on their computer. Woo Hoo!
The pictures of the flowers above were taken while I waited for my hubby to check availability at a hotel in Coral Gables...near the Colombian Consulate...where we went to get our VISAS. NO availability anywhere NEAR due to conventions, etc...and I know better but thought we'd try our luck because I don't know the area.
Oh well - we passed Miami / South Beach area at dusk on the way to find a hotel which was a total treat and then stayed in an OK place in North Miami Beach where we were treated to a spectacular sunrise.
We received our VISAS in the same morning that we applied - due to the great efficiency of Moncia (at the Consulate) and a fantastic Jenny at DocuRapid where they bend over backwards to be helpful in getting our paperwork together every year. Thank you Jenny!!!
We headed to Cape Coral, where we lived for 10 years, and miss horribly at times, and stayed with my dear friend Vickie who painted the above wall for her grand-son's highly anticipated arrival.
After a couple nights of pure laziness and fun, we crossed the Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay on our way up to Belleaire Beach (and the condo that we rented for the next 8 nights) - where it was raining on the south side and sunny -with a rainbow - to the north.
More later. Our Winge (my son's awesome wife) just got home and we have lots to do!!!
