Since there are no direct flights from Toronto to Quito, Ecuador I had to fly through Miami and decided to book a day in there to see Miami beach and feel some warm beach sand on my feet. It was the first time visiting Miami and I think it is beautiful. The pictures are from the morning of December 29th 2008. My flight left the day before in Toronto and there was a cold and powerful wind which barely allowed us to take off but this morning on the beach was so peaceful. It's worth waking up early if your ever on vacation near the ocean.
