One of the places my family took my wife and I while visiting Miami, Florida over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend was a place called 'Bayside'.  It is a shopping, restaurant and entertainment district along the one of the major bays in the area, where boats dock right there.  There is quite a ni...
While I was touring the shops in an area called Bayside on Saturday night in Miami, Florida I walked through this store that had this large display of Amethyst crystals.  I have always been facinated with this geological wonder, and took out my iPhone and made a quick video of it to share and rem...
When I was in Miami, Florida over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend my wife and I visited an Everglades site seeing place just outside if town.  After taking a boat ride through the everglades, and looking at alligators and other wildlife, we returned for a small nature show in a little theatre th...
