Anthony and I spent a week in Ft. Lauderdale at the end of October. It’s been several years since we were down there. And I have to say, I’d forgotten how beautiful the beaches are. From that point of view, it’s really not so different than being in the Bahamas…except much easier to get to.
We almost rented bikes…not sure what happened to those plans.
One afternoon we took a drive down to South Beach. Neither of us had been. And I was curious about the art deco scene there. I have to say, Ocean Drive…the strip along the beach…did not disappoint! Here’s Anthony in front of the gift shop.
And waiting just inside were these outrageously fun miniature furniture pieces from a variety of design styles. I think the furniture looks super cool in dollhouse size. The store was filled with kitsch and I’d love to share more. But the ‘no photos’ sign caught my eye just after I’d snapped these shots. Boo.
Fantastic beachy deco architecture along the strip. And I just loved all the art deco type on the restaurants and hotels.
Sometimes you’ve got to have a destination when you walk so you don’t end up going way too far. This was ours on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale…tap the pier and then head back.
