So Allegiant is a relatively new airline which offers cheap flights to a few destinations from Memphis including Miami. My friend Ruth is living down there so I thought I would try out Allegiant air and visit June 26-29. Turns out the airline is totally a la carte. Everything cost more. It also seems that they’re consistently running late as well. My flight on the way back was delayed 6 hours.
Anyway while in Miami we went to one of the many beaches. I actually managed to get some sun and we saw a 3 foot long iguana in the wild which was unexpected. We also saw some needle fish and I managed to step on some creature (we both freaked out). We visited the Wynwood district that is currently being gentrified. The graffiti on the walls was excellent! We went to a few places including one called “Shots”. This place had various things including hookah rental, two women dressed as unicorns selling jello shots, and about 3 separate bars with a live DJ who felt the need to ruin the music by constantly speaking into the microphone.
Ruth has a relatively new, very cute dog named Phoebe whom I got along well with. I met a bunch of Ruth’s friends who were all cool. Speaking of that, I need to check with Liz to find out the best dates to try to go to Disney.

So several of us Cooper Young neighbors decided to go to the beach June 6-13. We chose a large house in Miramar Beach which is right next to Destin, FL. It turns out there were some other Cooper Youngers down there so we all got together and had a party. Many rounds of Cards Against Humanity were played. Each couple took turns cooking for everyone, which worked out pretty well. The last full day we went to Big Kahuna’s water park which was a lot of fun. Elek and I rode everything except the black slides. Good times with good people!
