Sunday, Monday.

What else we did in Miami besides being lazy?
We walked on the beach, looking at the birds  and the people. There were more birds too see and kites  and we went to the mall and of course we shopped.

Patiently waiting for their fish.

Any food here?

These kites were so big.

Bet they were hungry.


That beautiful Aventura Mall.

Shopping for the granddaughters .)


Apple Store.

I am linking this post to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 :
Mosaic Monday :
and Monday Mellow Yellows :

Thank you to the hosts.

Deze shopping mall lag toen te ver bij ons vandaan, maar gelukkig hadden onze dochters al veel winkels van Victoria's Secret bezocht ;-). Je kleindochters zullen blij zijn geweest met deze tasjes.

Fijne avond Riet. Liefs, Ingrid

wow- great photos!Have a wonderful day!

Pamela Gordon said...

It looks like you did a bit of everything. The kite is really neat looking. I've never been to The Cheesecake Factory (never been to Florida!!) but I hear it's great.

Ruth Kelly said...

Love the beach shot and the birds. I am not familiar with those white birds that were running on the grass.

Jeannie Marie said...

I love that Cheesecake Factory mural. Happy Thanksgiving!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Amazing scenes. I could spend a lot of money at the Apple store.

Wat is het toch zalig lieve Rietje, in je vakantie heerlijk precies doen waar je zin in hebt.
Luieren HEEL belangrijk, hihi maar
ook heerlijk winkelen.
Enig die tasjes voor de kleindochters, en zeker ook de inhoud daar twijfel ik niet aan.

Prachtig al die soorten vogels van zo dichtbij te kunnen bewonderen.
Heerlijk banjeren langs het water.

Erg mooi de foto's die je laat zien, en ik denk ook dat je er
heel veel hebt genomen.

Veel liefsssss

Hi Riet! I enjoyed looking at all your pictures! It's been a long time since I've been to Florida, and never to Miami.

Ik denk dat je kleindochters wel blij met je zijn! Leuke foto's van een fijne vakantie zo te zien.

Je hebt je zo te zien prima waten te vermaken. Mooie strand- en zeefoto's, normaal gesproken spreken die me altijd meer aan dan foto's van winkels, maar omdat ik sinds gisteren beschik over de geweldige iPad Air, maak ik graag een uitzondering voor de Apple Store. ;-)
Fijne zondag verder!

Jolanda said...

Jullie hebben genoten, dat kan ik wel zien! En jullie kleindochters ook bij jullie thuiskomst:) fijne zondag en lieve groet

Jeannie Marie said...

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday! I realized as soon as I posted that you are not celebrating our holiday this week, but then again it didn't matter because we are all thankful for blessings given any day of the week!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

It looks like you had a wonderful vacation, Riet! I loved the beach photos, especially the waves hitting the shore.

Lorrie said...

Glad you enjoyed your trip to Florida. Beautiful beaches and water.

Lina Gustina said...

Came from MYM.
Thanks for sharing your enjoyable trip. Great photos!

Hannah said...

I don't get to the beach very often, so much fun to go there with your photos. Brown pelicans always make me think of Pterodactyls when they fly over.

Unknown said...

Great photos. Love the mosaic mural on the cheesecake factory wall.

eileeninmd said...

Love the beach and birds. The Apple store is very popular. What a fun trip to Miami! Have a happy week ahead!

Ileana said...

Beautiful birds!

SmilingSally said...

Hi Riet,

I've been to that mall and to that Cheesecake Factory. In fact, I've been to the Apple store too! Those were my "stomping grounds" for many years before I moved up to Tampa.

Have a good Blue Monday.

Gorgeous photography and what a lovely family time ~ thanks, carol, xxx

LV said...

I enjoyed you letting us enjoy your trip thorough your lens. Felt like I had been there. Great photos.

Jeanne said...

Hello Riet, All of your wonderful photos sure bring back memories. I have seen it all many times. We lived in Florida 58 years of my life. We moved to the mountains 6 years ago. It was a lovely place to live and we visit our daughters often who still live there. We are here for Thanksgiving now.

I am so glad you enjoyed your FL vacation so much. The Ventura Mall is beautiful. Shopping for our grands is always a pleasure.

I posted about our Disney cruise we took last week. It was a wonderful trip with our daughter and family.

xo, Jeanne

Een goede week!

Liefs van Madelief x

A lovely glimpse of Miami Riet.
LOve your mosaic this week.

My granddaughters would love to receive one of those pink shopping bags too!!!!
You are a hit I'm sure.

The pelicans is my favourite image - they are such wonderful birds.


Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Such a fun Holiday! And that is a beautiful Mall. The white birds with the downcurved beaks are Ibis.

Is that a cow kite? How funny! Love the patient pelicans.

Your photos are all so beautiful Riet! You have captured those gorgeous skies so beautifully! Oh how I have loved seeing this trip to Florida through your eyes my friend. I'm so glad you got to see and do so many different things while there. It truly is a wonderful place to see in person.

Oh you came to wonderful for you and your images are lovely. My husband was born there and as young adults we lived in Miami for a year. My 2 twin grandsons were born near there too. I have missed seeing you for a while~
