Hi! Just came back from sunny state of Florida. As usually America keeps amaze me with its beautiful nature. The sun is tender (there was't that crazy heat as it was in NYC and DC last week, so, thanks god, we missed that hell) and the ocean water is transparent and surreal turquoise. The Mexican Gulf (Sarasota region) is clean so far and looking at it's snow-white sand beaches you can't stop thinking about stupidity and egoism of human nature, how could they ever put under risk that unique resorts, installing oil drills in the Gulf!?
Well, here couple of pictures I took during ours with my wife trip.
Key Largo - chain of isles at the most southern part of USA. Two meters from a shore here we saw a huge (more than 3 meters long) mamatee just relaxing
Fort Lauderdale beaches.
Art deco district in Miami Beach
While on every corner people make money showing crocodiles to a tourists, this guy popped out of the water near rest area on the way to Sarasota. For FREE!
Pelicans, seaguls and herons don't even care about people.
That tiny lizard charmed me, but then I saw 1.5 meter iguanas taking a sun bath just near our car.
Turtle nests are under US laws protection.
Wilderness. (Myakka river state park)... Jesus... 2.5 miles walking just to see that the water in swamps was too high to reach the alligators place, and 2.5 miles back. But it was an experience.
Key West - the only Caribbean US island and the country's most southern point. It is only 90 miles from Cuba.
There is definitely Caribbean mood on its streets
But at the same time it is very american
But life style is still relaxing, people are friendly and... well, they are islanders.
And here we are in Viscaya Palace in Maiami. Amazing place.
