I had a wonderful time in Florida. I got to spend time with 2 out of my 3 children and my granddaughter. They are talented and wonderful and I admire them so much. My daughter graduated from college, Florida Atlantic University, with honors. Congratulations!
In addition to the beach, we headed to Miami to see Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. This is a mansion built from 1914 to 1916 by the head of International Harvester, James Deering. He built it to look like a 400 year old Italian estate that had been renovated over generations. So, he created overlapping historical periods with antiques and specialized craftsmen. At the same time, the technology was state of the art, with central heating, refrigeration, butler call system, and a telephone.
