Kayaking at Oleta River

I went kayaking on my 31st birthday weekend with my 4 and a half week pregnant wife and my bestfriend, Frank, and his girlfriend, Christina. We went to Oleta River State Park down 163rd street. This park is a very nice slice of nature in the middle of urban (suburban?) North Miami Beach, with kayaks, biking trails, picnic areas, a beach ...

The kayaks were a bit pricey($35 bucks for an hour and a half), but we had a great time, the weather was awesome, and the place was beautiful.

Here are more pics.

Went to the old Hialeah Racetrack and took some pretty cool pictures. The place is still beautiful, but now in a rundown haunted sort of way. I'm surprised to see the flamingos are still there.

Eventually they'll renovate it and make it all nice, so I'm glad I got some pics of when it was in disrepair.

4 months and a week into the pregnancy, Marge is finally starting to show. Don't know what the baby is yet so we've been calling it Kiwi. We should know by next week though... wonder if the name Kiwi will stick?

Me and the wife went to El Farito in Key Biscayne and took lots of pics. It was pretty cool, first time I'd ever gone up into the lighthouse's watch room.

More pics!

Bought a camera last week, a Canon Powershot SX 20 IS, and I've been taking lots of pictures of the marshes around my home. I'm really enjoying the zoom lens! Check them out.
