Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Trip to North Miami

leave a comment »

Mike and I spent the weekend here (except for the millions of hours spent in the airport due to delays :().  It was beautiful and luxurious and great to just hang out.

Here is the view from our room (little cloudy on Sun).

On Sat we went to breakfast at Bagel Cove where Mike and I were officially the youngest in the entire restaurant.  Then spent most of the morning and afternoon at the beach club.  We had a ~ 4pm tee time at the Westin Diplomat Golf Club because paying over $200 a round EACH at our hotel didn’t sound like fun.  I played one of the best round of golf in my life and am now actively looking to buy a used set of Callaway Golf Clubs (similar to the ones I rented).

We went to dinner at Burbon Steak and it was pretty good (we’re just so spoiled living in NYC) . . .  its a very swanky looking restaurant and it was great to just walk upstairs to get home.

Sunday morning we had breakfast at the hotel and then went to the pool for a little . . . they have a lazy river which I think you would love.  🙂

As you can tell from the pictures a storm came and they made us get out of the pool so we went inside to pack up but checked out their veggie garden on the way (which the hotel chefs harvest – cool, right?).

Then we ventured off the resort to The Blue Marlin Fish House which was profiled on one of our favorite shows, Diners Drive ins and Dives.  They specialize in smoked fish and it was very good.

After lunch it was still rainy, we already had to check out of the hotel and still had about 2.5 hours to kill so we went to see Water For Elephants.  It was SO good and followed the book nicely.  Highly recommended!
