“Sometimes I wonder why I spend the lonely nights, dreaming of a song…”
The lyrics of Mitchell Parish put to the immortal Hoagy Carmichael tune “Stardust” and sung for you here by Jo Stafford.
The Stardust Hotel in this piece was taken on a March trip to Miami on one of those “I just have to escape the frigid cold!” moments in Minnesota. Located in the Historic Art Deco District, it’s not one of the poshest hotels, but it has it’s architectural charms.
This was my first time in Miami; In my three days, I rented a car, stayed in an AirB&B in North Miami, explored South Beach and the Deco District, and drove to Key West and back all in one day.
