We arrived in Miami for the whole point of the exercise: graduation for DD1 and baptism for GS1.
There was a short stroll in the South Beach area, where we viewed one of the new fashion "things": open lace used as pants over a swimsuit. This is laughably called a "coverup" although there isn't anything covered. (It will look okay if your swimsuit doesn't match so much that you look like you went out in just undies and the open lace. The first one we saw, the lace pants completely matched the color of the girl's two piece swimsuit. She looked like she was strolling the streets in bra, panties, and the lace pants. No top other than her swimsuit. Not a good look, in my opinion. No, I didn't take photos of people, they didn't go out with the idea that they'd be all over the interwebs in whatever I saw them in.)
|Sea-grape as I've never seen it before. (At South Padre Island, this plant is usually a small to medium sized shrub.)|
|Really yummy calves' liver, just before we snarfed the last bit up!|
The baptism was my second time to visit Gesu Church. (Y'all may remember my posts from a couple of months back, when I went to help out with GS1's arrival.) With DH on hand to help take pictures, and the kind explanations of the priest about the teaching scheme of the art, I have more to show you about Gesu.
