Florida Sunshine

So after graduation, I was given the chance to fly out to Miami, Florida to see a few friends of mine. My parents are so awesome, that they gave me a ticket to go out there and hang out. My first order of business was to hang out with Jillian, which was easy, because she was picking me up from the airport. Then it was a 4 hour drive down to Key West. We stayed at an awesome place called The Truman Hotel.

We went out and tore up the town. Jillian tried to keep up with me, but she forgot I was celebrating being out of school (a goal of mine for my whole life). So, she was hung over when she woke up, but that was nothing a little pool time couldn't fix.

After we left Key West, we drove up to Marathon, which is about 2 hours away from the southern most point. We met up with my old buddy Sean, who is a dolphin trainer at a resort called Hawks Cay. There we got to meet all his co-workers and all his awesome dolphins. They did all sorts of great tricks, like dancing above water, making motorcycle sounds, and a ton of other actions by command. Next was to go out with him and tear up his town. Jillian asked me to remind her that she was not drinking, and I forgot. Needless to say, I bought her drinks and she tried to keep up again. There was a band there that was playing surf music, but they also played some stuff that we could country (2 step) dance to. We tore that dance floor up and really impressed everyone there. Well, we think we did...we were under the influence of my favorite East Coast beer...Yuengling.
Once we got back from the bar, we went back to Sean's place and cooked some food that we picked up from the local fish market earlier in the day. It was awesome, and the friend we met, Mona, was also awesome.

We woke up the next morning and trekked back to Miami. Once in Miami, we went all over. We checked out the beach, the food, the awesome architecture. Awesome trip, I had a great time.
