Miami, Florida

Miami was one of our ports of call on our North American East Coast Cruise October/November 2013. Sailing into Miami as the sun rose was just beautiful.

One shore-excursion we couldn’t resist whilst in Miami was to spend a morning hover-crafting over the Everglades and it didn’t disappoint!

The bird life surprised us for some reason – they were so big yet so beautiful!

Miami - Everglade birdlife

Gators were what we wanted to see and we saw them!

We even had an opportunity to hold one when we came back in from the Everglades.

From the Everglades we headed into The Bay, just down from where the ship had docked. Here we wandered around before enjoying some lunch at Bubba Gumps. We didn’t even know there was a restaurant chain as such!

We had the best day – watching Miami as we sailed out of port was almost bitter-sweet – except it was so glorious!

Miami - Leaving

Yes, another city we knew what not to expect but didn’t fail to exceed!

So... what did you think?
