MIAMI pt 2

Aw I knew you guys would all come back for part 2 🙂 and sadly the final part…

If you missed MIAMI part 1, fear not just click HERE 

See, and just like that you’re all caught up!

After dinner at Havana 1957, Andrew and I were frolicking around the town; mind you we were exhausted from being out in the sun all day, I was burnt and still sick, but the night was young. We did some quick research and found out that this museum was open till midnight so Andrew and I always being simpatico with one another ubered on over to….

The thing with Miami is you can drive through areas and not know whether you’re in a safe or “sketchy” area…needless to say, the area that Wynwood Walls was in seemed sketchy but the plethora of hipsters moseying around made us feel better.

Anyways, such an incredible place, the art gallery was mind blowing. And again, I thank OnAnotherCoast for this suggestion 🙂5

I give serious kudos to artists and their genius creative minds. I always wonder how they even come up with their ideas, the mere little details in everything is so relevant yet we have no idea what it all means.

THE NEXT MORNING

We woke up and decided to Yelp some breakfast places. As we were scrolling through, I laid eyes on a place called O’ My Buns! And the first picture the came up was this beautiful delicious mouth watering looking waffle.

And before you know it, here we stood…15

And this laid out in front of me… I got a Green Tea Waffle (yes, Green tea) with nutella, strawberries & bananas.16

Andrew got a similar one but a plain waffle chocolate drizzle, strawberries & bananas, and the guy gave him a complementary cup of ice cream because supposedly it’s the best to eat it altogether like that- he wasn’t kidding! YUM and YUM.

The weather was even hotter this day than the last so we of course had to go back to the beach for round 2

We got lunch at another Cuban restaurant called Moreno’s

The ambiance was unlike anything I’ve seen; a very beachy, small, authentic feel. Andrew said that this place is very similar to how it would be in Cuba. I personally loved it…21

Idek what I ordered, but I loved it.

And then we were onto our next adventure!23

The Perez Art Museum

Another compelling art museum. Every single thing showcased in that museum I just wanted to know what the thought process was behind all of it. I was amazed.25262728

The majority of what I captured here were videos of things. A lot of it was interactive which is my personal favorite because my inner 5 year old loves to touch everything.

The best part of this museum was that it oversaw the Biscayne Bay24

There’s a beautiful park that you can walk through that aligns with the water, beautiful.

We were standing there for a little bit, and I kept seeing a dolphin pop out of the water. So I told Andrew and he was in complete disbelief “You didn’t see a dolphin, there’s no dolphins”…. 3 seconds later, the dolphin popped back up. #thatswhatithought

They don’t call them the Miami Dolphins for nothing 😉

31

And if you follow the trail it brings you to this pathway32

And to the left of it is the American Airlines Arena. They also, don’t just call them the Miami Heat for nothing….it was scorching out.

This was the end of that adventure, we headed back to the hotel so shower andd watch the Patriots kick some butt 😉 We Goin’ To The SUPERBOWL!

I’m so entirely grateful for Andrew and our trip to Miami. Incredible experience, awesome beach weather, a lot of site seeing, and miscellaneous adventures. And now on to the next place 🙂

Thanks for reading everyone!!!

xo, JJ

      I know worst timing to be sick poor Andrew had to hear me say “I don’t feel good like 10x a day lol but I did dose up on some cold medicine and it helped get me through the day lol but yess it was so awesome! Thanks again for the suggestion, it was such a cool unique area, crazy cool vibes! Can’t wait to adventure back out to Miami in the future! xo

      Same, I love the ambiance of a museum, I get so overwhelmed sometimes though because there’s so many different sections and wings and I want to see everything and I’m always nervous I’ve missed something lol but nonetheless, love them!

    Ok, here we go.. long comment as usual..

    That museum looks pretty cool. Has a pretty good variety in art styles. Do you know if that museum houses local art only? Or if it’s widespread?

    That waffle looks delicious! We have a Waffle House over here that serves waffles just like that with bananas and Nutella 🙂

    And seriously!! The beach looks very pristine. I might have missed it in your previous post, or I just don’t remember if you mentioned it, but is the beach only accesible to people in the hotel? Because you said they take your order and bring you stuff. Lol.

    And your meal looked far more elaborate than Andrews lmao.

    That is so cool you found an interactive museum. I have never been to one, unless you count the children’s museum, for which in that case, I have* been to one lol.

    And I can’t believe you saw a dolphin!!!! I would love to see one just out in the Wild. Closest thing we have to marine life here, besides the zoo but that doesn’t count, are the sea lion caves out in the coast. I seriously want to go check it out. But they may leave during the spring. The caves tend to be fuller during the fall and winter. Come spring and summer they run off to mate lol.

    Anyway, very fun! 🙂 it’s nice to take advantage of trips to discover new places and see new things. Everyone should travel more. 🙂 including me lol. (Currently cannot though).

      LOL Rossy I love your extraordinarily long comments, they make my day! Okay lets see, noooo idea about the art- if I could guess the Wynwood Walls is probably more local whereas the other museum may be widespread, but I could be totally wrong lol I love waffles more than life, I seriously should just invest in my own waffle maker, it would probably be easier and cheaper- although we do have an IHOP right nearby.
      As for the beach/hotel situation; so there’s different colored chairs laid out and I guess each hotel has specific chairs you can use and they give you a “ticket” buttt when Andrew and I went no one checked our ticket so I think it’s just a free for all really…. and they have servers, massage people, guys selling coconuts all throughout the beach which I think anyone can use that service. Kinda crazy I’ve never seen anything like that on a beach before- it’s usually a go walk your own butt to the boardwalk and get it yourself lol The dolphin was so cool to see- I wish it wouldve done some flips and tricks but I guess wild dolphins just do it on their own time 😉 That’s actually really cool that you guys have sea lion caves I wonder how close people can actually get to them though….you’ll have to go and report back 😉 hahah

        Well I’m glad someone appreciates my long comments lmao!
        Ah well either way, it’s nice when people’s efforts get into exhibitions and you get to see people before they become well known in the art industry. 🙂
        You really should! I make waffles often and the boys really love it because we can get creative lol. (Cinnamon waffles, chocolate chip, plain, with fruit, topped with strawberries, ice cream, whipped cream, syrup, Nutella, etc.). I wish we had an IHOP nearby. I love that place lol.
        That’s pretty cool though. I never knew such thing existed anywhere at beaches because it seems people would just go and pretend they’re staying at the hotel lol.
        And I really want to go to the sea lion caves. I just need to do more research first to make sure we go when there will at least be a few.

        Yuck. It sucks when you have been in paradise (which is anything by the beach, sunshine, and WARM!) and have to come back to cruddy weather. I have to put it on my bucket list! That is so cool! Yes there are! One thing I wish I could do. I can only draw stick people and circle people but I certainly appreciate others who have a much more robust set of drawing skills 🙂 Anytime! I love your blog! ❤

    How did you guys manage to fit SO much into a few days?!? You seriously saw all of Miami and still found time to relax! I absolutely loved that artwork. I always admire people that have that gift, I can barely draw a stick figure. And I actually said “WHAT!” out loud when I read about the green tea waffle. That sounds like heaven. I made green tea matcha cupcakes for my mom one year for Mother’s day, and I’m wondering if I could use a similar batter but tweak it to make it more waffly…because oh.my.word… that looks SO GOOD. And nutella with strawberries and bananas on top- GENIUS. Hahah- that’s too funny about the dolphin. Lastly, how exciting that your team is in the Super Bowl! I’m not super invested either way so I’ll cheer for the Patriots 😉 HAPPY WEEKEND, love!

      WAIT. A. MINUTE!….. did you say green tea matcha cupcakes?! Can you send me the recipe?! JennyJo.xo@gmail.com I need that in my life. Artists kill me, I just can’t believe some of the things they come up with. But then again some of the stuff is so random (like splotches of paint on a canvas or something) and I’m like I could’ve done that?? LOL Also, sooo excited about the Patriots; also mostly because it just our team over here- not so much the whole football thing lol But still # GOPATS 🙂

      Oh girl, I’m just as sad there was no part 3. Andrew still can’t stop talking about Miami and wants to go back asap! BTW, the hotel we stayed at is called The Cadet Hotel. It’s def a cute place, super sweet staff, clean, cozy, walking distance to everything! We felt super safe there and they seem to have good rate prices! I’d totally check it out. If you’re looking for a real nice/luxury one, I’d check out the SLS (it’s gorgeous but I’m sure the prices are through the roof)!

    I love the name of the shop and how amazingly yummy that looks!, does it just do waffles? Cuban food isn’t very big here in Ireland, but I’ve always wanted to taste it, was it good?
    All of your pictures look great! and that artworks is fab!
    looks like you had a really enjoyable trip 🙂
    would you go back?

      Lol the name is so funny. It’s definitely what caught my eye and I’m glad it did! But yeah, only waffles but you can have it as like a breakfast thing or they also make them into a cone-like thing and fill it with ice cream which the person before us did that and it looked SO amazing! Cuban food is really good, definitely comparable to Spanish food (idk if you guys have that in Ireland) but a lot of rice, beans, ground beef, and stuff. Very yummy nevertheless!

        There are some Spanish places in Dublin, but it’s not common at all. I love international food and every chance I get I try to taste new stuff
        One thing I’ve wanted to try is a Cuban sandwich! I’ve heard people say amazing things about them ☺☺
