BLUE Monday - Blue Art Deco and Plates in Miami


I'm joining in BLUE Monday with Sally at SmilingSally. Be sure to click, visit and enjoy all the other BLUE Monday participants for today.

On the drive to Miami's South Beach from the airport we saw huge beautiful homes beside the BLUE ocean where the residents' parked their "boats"in front of their homes....more like small ships. Can you imagine going for a little "boat" ride after dinner?.....
lovely BLUE waters to look at all day from these enormous homes...and BLUE skies...
Isn't this a nice cruise ship with lovely floral painting at the front? I was ready...

We did lots of walking and admired all the art deco hotels and restaurants that South Beach is known for. Lots of BLUE....


BLUE skies....circles...lines and words...

more BLUEness and don't you love that car parked in front of that hotel? We saw lots of very expensive cars in the area.

more BLUES...

This was one of 2 plates of these appetizers we all shared. Priscutto, soft mozarella cheese, basil and lovely tomatoes all on a lovely BLUE fish plate.

This was a delicious shrimp dinner Mike ordered on a BLUE plate.
Tomorrow I'll tell you who I met while we were out to dinner ......

In the meantime have a wonderful BLUE Monday....Judi xoxo
