    After our first night in Miami we had to see the famous beach. It really looked like in the movies, but the water was soooo warm! We hoped to get a bit of a cooling cause it was still very hot, but no. We felt like swimming in a big bath tub.

    In spite of suncream with a very high SPF I looked like a cancer after just about 20 minutes at the beach – welcome to Sunburn State!

    In the evening our skates had their first use. We were exploring a small part of Miami Beach on eight rolls – partly along the sandy beach, amazing! – and went back to bed after our three hour evening workout.

    As we forgot to make a reservation for that night at the Tropics we had to change our accomodation and slept at the Clay Hotel. It’s presumed that a part of Al Capones syndicate had been in that house in the 1920s.
