Well, I'm here in South Beach aka SoBe and I'm totally annoyed with the great weather! It's beautiful here. All of the places I've been in the world, from Honduras to Korea ... I've never been to Miami. Only really flown through here or connected. What a pretty city so far. I love the colors of the houses, reminds me slightly of Texas and all the colors used in the South West style. Anyway, nice stuff so far.
I got to the airport this morning and just a few minutes after I got in the terminal I spotted some familiar spikes and headed over to make the ticket kiosk and security route with Anne Burrell. It was really nice seeing someone I knew. I think I'm a bit nervous and don't really know why, so familiar faces calm the nerves. We got here and as soon as I checked into the hotel I wanted to get some air and see the beach. Turns out the hotel is right on the beach and I know you are like "how didn't you know where you were staying and stuff?" ... I dunno, see the last post. I can't even tell you how messy January was for me. I just glossed over it, but boy was I busy and not with only work, plenty of personal stuff too. So, I didn't pay attention to the travel details. Pretty cool though cuz being on the beach is a nice, needed surprise!
Anyway, on the way to the beach through the hotel pool area I saw a table full of more familiar faces ...
Clockwise that's Gordon Elliot, producer of Down Home with the Neely's, their director Mark, me :-), Gina and Pat. I stopped to say hi and ended up joining the table for a drink. As I've said before, they are such a nice couple. Nice way to start the trip!
