It’s officially summer here in this part of the world and it’s Friday! This photo was taken on my sunrise foray onto the beach when we were in Miami Beach. This young lady, Samantha from @Revived_Living, is a former competitive gymnast who was having some photos taken for her website; she is now a health and lifestyle coach.
Hope your weekend is a joyful one 🙂
But not quite back. I am missing the ocean, sand, sun and almost 90 degree heat; the humidity was hair frizz city high as well but who cared! If you follow me on IG then you know where we were and if not why not? 🙂 Will show and tell more next week but now it’s time to fire up the grill to welcome the unofficial start of summer and to give thanks on this Memorial Day weekend for those who gave their all for us.
Apparently the area was a starting place for several different walking tours too. This guide was for one that involved some part of the history of Bar Harbor – I didn’t catch any details. Later that evening, while walking back from dinner to our room along the sidewalk you can see behind the guide here, we fell in with a group that was doing a ghost tour. Since they were taking up the entire sidewalk we paused with them for a minute to hear bits about a “haunted” grave yard before slipping through the group and on our way.
Let’s see who get’s it. I will be on spring break next week – well let me clarify that – the kids will be on spring break next week and I will be joining them. DH cannot come with me so watch out world here she comes! Then again, how much mischief can I get into when I will be with a 13, 11 and 4month old?
On second thought don’t answer that 😉
Besides signs at the museum here that warned you to watch out for snakes (I kept my eyes open but was banking on them being in hibernation) and arrows directing you to stay on the walking paths, there were also signs identifying some of the plants in the area. There were saguaro and chola cactus, Palo Verde trees and sage and jojoba bushes like the one at the bottom of the windmill to name a few.
The Superstition Mountain Museum has several old mining buildings, mining equipment, signs that say watch out for snakes and the chapel here known as the Elvis Chapel because he once filmed a movie here.
