Road Trip

My daughters, Ellen and Katey, will be visiting from Texas, March fifth through the eleventh. Our eagerly-awaited four-day road trip will take us through Everglades National Park to Miami Beach and Biscayne National Park.

We have planned two boat tours, a day at the beach, a visit to the Miccosukee Indian Village, and a walk across the saltwater marsh that I once enjoyed nearly forty years ago. We look forward to encounters with alligators, dolphins, and colorful tropical birds. Local seafood, Cuban cuisine, barbeque, and matzo ball soup are also on our itinerary.

I will share stories and photos of our trip when we return.

    1. Thank you, KK, for your kind response. ❤ Miccosukee Indian Village is a replica of a Native American village from earlier times. It is an outdoor museum, and there is also a small indoor historical museum. I used to take groups of students there, but it's been many years, so there may be a lot of changes. I will take photos to post!

  3. Hi Cheryl,

    If you haven’t mentioned Katey and Ellen are your daughters I would have assumed you’re the youngest woman in above picture.

    It’s 11th March already. You must be tired right now, after enjoying the trip.

    I’m waiting for the pictures and the carefully crafted, short- detailed, reflective poems.

    Best wishes. Take care.
