Coral Gables, Florida, USA - 19th April 2008

By: carlissa

Today our host took Ossa and me for a bike ride down Old Cutler Road, which is in a very beautiful section of town.  Our bike ride started at Cartagena Circle where we saw a pair of giant shoes!

Nearby we saw a pretty little canal:

Then we got on the bike and rode down Old Cutler Road until we got to the beach at Matheson Hammock Park where we stopped for lunch.

After lunch, we walked over to see Biscayne Bay and we could see downtown Miami in the distance.

And we climbed up this mangrove tree that was growing in the water!

After enjoying the beach for awhile, we decided to continue our bike ride.  We found this little cemetery in the middle of a residential area!  How cool is that!  We read a sign there that said it was one of the oldest cemeteries in the area.

Ossa was little scared to look around, but I thought it would be fun; it was such a pretty little cemetery.  We found a gravestone of someone who was in the Civil War and he died over a hundred years ago!

After that we rode back to the car and came home.
