Thursday In Miami Beach ~

In my life I've lived, I've loved, I've lost, I've missed, I've hurt,
 I've trusted, I've made mistakes, but most of all I've learned...

A late Valentine's Day outing, but it's the thought that counts.  
Today I took Arvid to Monty's in Miami.  We both like it very much there.
  For him dinner is not so much about the food, rather it's about the ambiance.  
Good thing is we both enjoy the food there very much as well.

We have not been to Monty's in almost 2 years.  For s both
 this will be a special treat.  One we have waited for with great
 anticipation ever since we knew we were coming to Florida.

The restaurant itself is casual.  Nothing fancy here, but the ambiance 
and the views are one of a kind.  As we sit we watch the boats go by
 including cruise ships and the huge container  ships heading to Europe
and to other parts of the world.  Arvid is caught up in the view 
more than he is in the food, but I have to say he does
 enjoy the raw bar as much as I do.  Well not as
 much but he is getting better. Much better.

Located poolside and waterfront on the docks of the picturesque
 Miami Beach Marina, Monty’s Sunset is South Beach’s premiere spot 
for casual dining, fresh-caught local seafood, a succulent raw bar,
 live music and the most stunning sunsets in South Florida. 

It’s the perfect place for lunch, dinner, happy hour, 
special occasions, live music or any major sporting event, 
Monty’s Sunset has something for everyone.

All is good in Florida.  I have moments of sadness, but I know
 that it's just part of life and part of dealing with grieves
 and loss.   Yes, my heart still gives for Brutus.  I don't
 think it will ever stop missing him.  We are having 
a good time, but I would like to go home.

 Last night for some reason I missed him even more than usual, 
at the same time i also want to go back home to Sniff.  I miss the 
little dude very much.  I have grown accustomed to his little face.

We have had a great day in Miami. The food as always was delicious,
 now looking forward to spending a little time with my parents,
 Nina and David.  Yes, life is good.  Very good.

Sometimes losing a pet is more painful than losing a human
 because in the case of the pet, you were not pretending to love it
