Welcome to Miami!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Miami. Miami welcomed me with giant palm trees, blue water, and this famous “Welcome to Miami Beach” sign. The animals were left back at the reserve in Meridian, Idaho as I  needed some serious R&R! Not to worry the animals are watched and taken care of 24/7 by my Animal Assistant.

The beaches were absolutely beautiful! Here I am pictured with my cousin who really showed me the “ropes” around South Beach. Some of the things included laying out in the sun, swimming in the ocean, and to never forget your sun glasses!

You can take the boy from the animals but not the animals from the boy! One of my favorite things to do in the morning was to go outside and watch the habits of the little anole lizards found all over South Beach. Watching them for hours I realized that each little lizard had his/her own territory and basking spot.

I looked like such a tourist taking pictures of the ocean! I can’t help it. When you were born in raised in such a dry place like Idaho you really appreciate seeing things like water.

This picture explains it all. The true beauty of the beach. So relaxing and peaceful. My life can be such a world-wind at times. With constant appearances, daily animal care, and traveling I sometimes forget to stop and take a moment to relax and take in nature’s true beauty.
