For the last few weeks, I have been living between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida with my cousins. Since I am taking online courses for school right now I thought I would take advantage of the family I have living in paradise and move down here for a bit. It was a great decision! Fort Lauderdale is a beautiful area of Florida with white sandy beaches, crystal blue water, and swaying palm trees. The main strip is lively day and night filled with a mixture of locals and tourists. Here are a few of my photos from the first week of my trip. Also, you can read about my visit to Miami and the old house my family and I used to live in here. I love living in the D.C. area, but it is so nice to come back home to Florida where I grew up.
