Thursday in Miami

Spent Thursday in Miami. What a great day!! First stop was Dash, the Kardashian's store.


It's such a cute store. Of course, we can barely afford anything in there, but did come away with a cute little candle, Rhubarb Pear, which smells luscious.

And was packaged nicely too.


We couldn't leave without taking advantage of a wonderful photo opportunity. As our dear blogging friend, Glenda, commented on my Facebook page . . . "I'm sure one of their butts sat in that exact chair!!" How true!!
The beach was next on the list. How beautiful is this? The color of the water was just breathtaking!
I sat for awhile in the little park area by the beach and read Somerset Life while enjoying the cool breezes. The view was spectacular to my left . . .


and spectacular to my right . . .


We then did some shopping on Lincoln Road, a beautiful shopping district with tons of stores and more sidewalk cafes than you could imagine.
There was a store with a very interesting decor. I couldn't resist snapping this shot of a wall of old Singer sewing machines. They told me there were 262 machines on display. Isn't this unique?
This is my favorite . . .
Here is the wall behind the cash registers. I loved the window in the midst of it all.

We left the house at 8:30am and returned home at 10:30pm. It was a superb day, filled with many happy memories. And now I must go rest my weary bones. Miami was a blast. Can't wait to go again!!

What a lovely day indeed. I would love to visit the Dash store, I have seen it on the Kardashian girls show. The candle scent sounds as if it is heavenly! How wonderful you and Rachel had a special day together.
