My friends and I decided to hire a van and go on a day trip through Florida. Best idea ever!
Our time on the road was filled with laughter and good music, complementing the excitement in the atmosphere. We came across an alligator themed store!
We also made a mandatory stop at a store called ‘Meal in a Pie’- a store that sells South African products and treats. Of course, we indulged in pies and biltong! The time spent at ‘Meal in a Pie’ had everyone feeling nostalgic. These snacks brought us closer to home.
We got back on the road and found a statue of the American flag and we decided to check it out. We also saw the most beautiful dam right next to it.
Our next stop was Naples Pier and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen! White washed sands and blue waters made for a mesmerizingly beautiful view. Winter in Florida makes for cold nights at the beach; however, it did not detract us from taking in the stunning sights and sounds.
A few of us had a teary moment experiencing the sunset. Moments can often be captured in a photo but the feeling we got will stay with us forever.
A perfect ending to a perfect day! We then took a drive home through Miami South Beach.
