Place 82 – Day 4: Miami,FL – Closed Museum & Coconut Grove

Closed Museum

We had a plan today to go to a museum down south.

We said to ourselves that we would walk there, which would take just an hour, but we got outside and were warm so we went for a scooter ride instead.

We got to the museum and noticed a sign outside which said it was closed on Tuesdays, which was not ideal.

We saw the gates were still open to the gardens, so we went into them and had a look around.

We got to the entrance of the actual museum and there were security there who said we had to leave. Turns out that the gardens were closed too!

Coconut Grove

We changed up our plan and walked to the rail station nearby, paid our $2.25 ticket each and boarded the train.

We only went one stop but it saved us 20 minutes of walking.

We quickly burned those saved 20 minutes when we walked way past our turning and had to turn back again.

We walked through a fairly nice area and got to CocoWalk in Coconut Grove.

This is a street with nice shops, restaurants & coffee shops.

We walked around a bit but weren’t too impressed. We wanted a snack and found a taco place which was just $3 per taco, so we got one each and continued with our day.

We wanted a coffee and we saw Starbucks but decided to go somewhere different, which was a mistake.

The place was called Blanco gelato and it was all organic etc.

Kim got a mocha coconut iced coffee and Curtis got just an iced coffee.

Kim’s was very small, expensive and just a thick sludge, but was tasty. Curtis had iced milk with a tiny bit of coffee and, again, expensive. We were quite disappointed.

Another Interview?

We got back in time to shower and relax a little and then at 18:30, Curtis had another interview scheduled.

As what seems to be a common theme, the interviewer never called, and no emails were returned.

So, after another wasted 30 minutes, we grabbed our steak from the fridge which we bought earlier from whole foods and made an average dinner.

The steak was delicious, a really great slab of meat, but the sauce we bought wasn’t good and overpowered the meal. Curtis also over seasoned the meat a little.

All in all, could have been better, but it’ll do!

We watched TV for the evening and ate a dessert each. Kim got a chocolate pie and Curtis got a lemon meringue pie to devour too.


This Time Last Year!
