The Fowey Rocks Lighthouse may be foreign to many that have never done Miami via water. Just a few miles off the coast of Key Biscayne, it stands tall and proud and has become a popular destination because of the clear waters and complex reef system. Just don’t let the Coast Guard catch you jumping [...]
I know water polo is not just a Miami Sport, but it’s one of the ones played here while the rest of the country is freezing its tail off. Here’s a photo taken at GMAC Championship this past weekend with MAST Academy defeating Columbus 13-11 and winning the championship! They say water polo is more [...]
Did you see the size of the gun on that little boat? (and not a “that’s what she said” joke either). Here I though the biggest crime in Miami waters was not idling through Manatee zones! As much as I should be used to heavy artillery because I’m from South America, I still can’t get [...]
Downtown Miami has been revived into the urban lifestyle we all envisioned for years. From living, working and dining to partying and enjoying. A real city hub with allure that entices every fiber of your being. This photo was taken from Area 31, a restaurant on the 16th Floor of Epic. Photos from this vantage point end up looking like posters because the view is so breathtaking.
There are many historic neighborhoods around Miami, but did you know about The Buena Vista East Historic District just North of The Design District? The historic name of this area was The Biltmore and Shadowland and was developed in the 20′s to provide homes for the influx of “cracker” migrants who came to Miami from [...]
The New World Symphony finally has a new home in Miami Beach designed by famed architect Frank Gehry. This photo was taken during The Grand Opening where we met Gehry in person as well as experienced the first public performance inside the hall. The space is like nothing we’ve seen before and the hall’s capabilities [...]
I woke up Tuesday morning and thought there was a fire outside my house and it ended up being FOG. Miamians are spoiled, there, I said it! We are so used to our beautiful clear blue skies and don’t know how to behave in any other type of day. Needless to say, traffic was backed [...]
After a friend’s suggestion, my husband and I decided to go watch the first sunset of the year from Miami Beach. The idea of a new start is always so appealing to many; the thought of having a blank slate leaving the past behind gives us a jolt of energy – but what are we [...]
Even when it’s not the ideal boating season, you can still enjoy Miami waters. Here’s a shot from The Miami Yacht Club right behind Jungle Island overlooking Hibiscus, Palm and The Venetian Islands. Lounging by the pool, enjoying the view and the company during the holidays.
No matter where you are in Miami you will be surrounded by magic. I know we tend to complain about service, traffic or other tedious things, but just take a moment to really look at your surroundings and everything will make sense. This amazing view is from the 27th Floor of Midtown 2 during Majestic [...]
We all have a way to get involved in our community, whether it’s by helping children, the elderly or the homeless. Here’s a photo taken of The Doctor’s Charter School Choir at one of the homes from the annual Holiday Walk in Miami Shores – organized by The Heidi Hewes Chapter of The Woman’s Cancer [...]
Call me crazy, but I consider a big juicy burger to be a comfort food – it’s my interpretation of meat and potatoes a la Americana. And nothing like a 10 oz, prime angus beef, Hotel California burger from the epic Burger and Beer Joint in South Beach. Is your mouth watering yet? This photo [...]
