Helicopter Over Miami Beach

We went on a awesome excursion today…a helicopter ride over Miami Beach.

We got picked up and taken to the air strip in Pembroke Pines.

Then, in a $450,000 helicopter traveling at 115 miles per hour, we got the ride of our lives.

With the sky clear blue, the sun shining bright, and the air cool and refreshing–what a great experience!

I put this in my memory bucket along with the jet skiing we did last year.

I thank G-d for the amazing opportunities and to experience this with my family.

Probably the funniest thing was when our pilot Jason asked “do you want to have a nice ride or a crazy time?”

I didn’t know we had to choose…especially after signing the waiver. 😉

Beauty And Kindess In Miami


I took this photo coming into Miami.


The beauty of the water, beaches, islands, intercoastal, modern high-rises, and more is just amazing to me. 


All this while we have the seasons changing up north.


This evening, in a restaurant, when I took out my phone for a moment, I accidentally dropped my wallet. 


I could have easily lost it and would’ve been up a creek!


I was really taken aback when someone came up and says holding out my wallet, “Excuse me, I think you must’ve dropped this.”


I was really grateful, and then not sure who else may have picked up my wallet before this person gave it back to me, I quickly started flipping through it to make sure everything was still there. 


Thank G-d!


And thanks to this nice person for being so honest and kind. 


When I left the restaurant, I stopped by their table to profusely say how much I appreciated what they did and to wish them a happy Thanksgiving–the real meaning, indeed. 😉
