A quick hello

Hello πŸ™‚

Just a quick update here on how things are going (I have taken some photos but right now the camera is charging so no pics just yet). After our long flight to Miami (and sitting on the tarmac in Miami during a massive rain/thunderstorm because it was raining too hard for the people to get the ramps out or something) and then the longest immigration queues ever (with staff who were very friendly and chatty and not at all in a hurry even though the queues got longer and longer) and then a long drive, we made it to Key West.

We had a lovely few days there, relaxing and wandering around the town. Β On our drive back up to Miami we stopped off at a turtle hospital which was really lovely and interesting, but also really sad because of all the turtles injured by human actions. Seriously- check out the website as there is a turtle (Sara) with an awful injury- loads of people are adding to the rewards as they hope to find out who did it. Good news is that we saw the turtle and she is loads better already.

Miami has been fun too- more wandering, and spotting film locations for Burn Notice (anyone else a fan?) and Dexter (well, first few episodes anyway).

Right, that is enough of an update- hope everyone is having a lovely summer (and staying away from those awful riots in the UK)- catch you later dudes.

  1. Glad that you’re having a great time! Just been looking on the turtle website, that’s so sad but so amazing that people are donating to make the reward!

  2. Glad you’re having fuuuuun! The weather is a little different in Miami than where I am but same idea — you had to come over during a heat wave didn’t you? πŸ™‚ Stay hydrated!!

  3. Sounds like you are having a fantastic fun time, Key West & Ft Lauderdale are 2 places I readily want to visit. Happy travels & can’t wait for the pics πŸ™‚

  4. Ahhh I can’t wait to see all your pictures and hear all the details! I love Florida! We’re arranging a blogger meetup in Manchester on the 30th of this month if you’re back and it’s not too far to come it would be lovely if you wanted to come!

    1. Hey Laura- thanks for letting me know- it sounds fun but I think I have some family stuff planned for that day. x

  5. Aww, the turtle hospital makes me so sad and yet hopeful at the same time. It’s nice to know that at least there’s a place where the poor mites can recover and recouperate. Definitely somewhere I’d like to work if it wasn’t halfway across the world!

    Glad you’re having what sounds like an immensely fun time: about time too after that awful winter weather incident.


  6. Thanks guys πŸ™‚
    Yeah it is so hot here! But I am trying to enjoy it haha!
    Yeah that turtle website is so amazing- there was a story on there about a girl who for her 11th birthday asked for donations to the hospital as her present. How amazing.

    1. Yeah I have been before and the queues have never been that bad. Perhaps Miami is just a bad airport to fly in to?
