Investigator Meeting, Coral Gables, FL

I had a conference in Coral Gables, Florida last week and through the weekend. It was actually a pretty good conference, and it was even better because Em got to go with me!

The hotel was gorgeous and historic. I think it's a wonderful place to go on vacation, but probably better to go for business because it was a wee bit pricey for me.

We went to this very tasty restuarant, Ortanique in Coral Gables, and we explored the little town some. Lots of wedding shops everywhere there! Seriously, on ever corner there's a bridal store, stationary, etc.

Back at the hotel (this fountain made quite the white noise for sleeping).

Our room was in the middle right above that palm tree (the one that's all lit up).

Room with a view -

We're all business -

This Italian restuarant in the courtyard of the hotel was the best dinner I've had out in a LONG time...and the best glass of wine I've ever had - Emeritus.

Em and I liked to sleep with the balcony door open (it was so nice listening to the palm trees swaying in the breeze and the fountain made such nice white noise), but we couldn't keep it from banging open or slamming shut. Sooooo, we rigged up a luggage strap and towel contraption;)
