Day in Miami  
Here are a few pics I took Sept 5th, the day Chris and I stayed in Miami before heading out to Spain the next day.

This was a neat building in the Brickle area. I like the round windows.

I was thrilled to find there were city chickens in downtown Miami.

This was the Hard Rock Cafe on the marina.

Some of the construction going on. I heard some of these cranes fell during the hurricane. I don't know which buildings though as there was lots of construction and many of these around.

Downtown from the water.

This was the mouth of the Miami river.

This was the view from the Aloft hotel from our balcony.

We were close to this fire station so we always heard sirens going off. I did a google maps search and found out they had a patriotic chicken statue so I had to go down there and check it out.

I'm glad we walked over to get pics of this cute chicken.

That chicken is funny.

I was very happy to see him there.

He's quite a character :-) Do cities do those painted animals anymore? It seemed like quite the fad in the 90s - we had cows.

Those photos of Miami are so picture perfect! It's hard to imagine that devastation was just a few days away.

Not really. I took a pic of this one because I'd never seen something like this at a fire station. But I'm glad he's there.
Yeah I plan to upload some more of the beautiful sunrise the day I left for the airport. Luckily Miami wasn't hit too hard since it wasn't in the direct path. From pics i've seen it's mostly trees, cars damaged and some flooding but I think things are mostly back to normal there.
