In case of emergency, by the pool, at the Raleigh Hotel, South Beach. A beautiful sunset along Miami Beach sets the cityscape alight with a fire-like glow. #beach #goldenhour #waterlust #beachbound #red I was in a zodiac, boating around Key Biscayne when the storm hit. It was incredible. Thunder clouds obscured out views and provided dramatic skies in all directions.

This was the top recco of my friend from Miami, and it was tasty. Here's the deviled egg. Shrimp n' grits another top pick. Bonus: Musak by Allman Bros. I attended a party at the Versace Mansion in South Beach a few years ago and was amazed at the cottage-like atmosphere sitting amidst the Art Deco #architecture of South Beach. #goldenhour#sunrise #miami beach #florida

Since Versace's murder, the house has been sold and turned into the Casa Casuarina, a members-only country club/hotel, but even with the bloodstains long gone, its front steps are still the most photographed spot in town. One of my favorite times of day,, sunrise :) It's stone crab season! If you're in Miami, head to Joe's Stone Crab for the tastiest claws. They've been around for more than 100 years! Oh, and def have their key lime pie. #miami #restaurant #Delicious Neighborhood Beach catching up with friends And watching #sunset #friends

This pic was taken during the bue hour right after sunset. Moon had just risen, I had a strong wind from the east. I was facing south east, so the clouds in the pic apear to be moving towards the right. The darkened skies provided a 30 second shutter speed while using F11 on a Canon 60D on sticks.

If you love sunshine and a buzzing atmosphere try to visit Miami towards mid-late March as this is when spring break is in Florida State. Ocean Drive turns into a place with full of people having a great time. You can see a lot of amazing cars and crazy faces as well as a lot of pretty girls in bikini! ☀️🏄🏻🌴🚗🌆🇺🇸 Sea the bird?

Beautiful Lounge area, free shuttle, near the beach, great restaurant and a staff that truly cares about you. Doesn't get much better than that! Sun & south beach The Confidante is a beautiful oceanfront hotel located on Collins Ave. in Miami Beach. Our room was modern, clean and had a incredible view of the beach.
