The camera was on the wrong setting for some of these photos, because the sun was so bright it was impossible to see what was on the screen. I think when “too bright sunlight” is your biggest problem on any given day, however, you can generally consider that day to be a success, so I’m just going to gloss over the bleached-out-ness (totally a word) and concentrate instead on that amazing skyline. Isn’t it fantastic?

These photos were taken during and after a boat trip. the main purpose of which was to show us the houses of the rich and famous, which are dotted around the islands surrounding South Beach. As awesome as the houses were, though, the best part was actually the views of the city we got from the boat, which were just stunning. Afterwards, we wandered along Ocean Drive and down to the beach, where the sun was just going down, and the city was starting to come to life. Needless to say, we’re loving Miami: I feel like we’ve been here forever already, and honestly, being here forever would be just fine by me.*
