Museum Of Contemporary Art And The Valentine Monkey

Valentines day was on it's way and when I spotted this cute little red and white monkey covered with pink hearts I just knew that it'd be the perfect gift for Gabriella, my seventeen month old grand daughter. Gabriella is starting to walk and talk and loves playing with stuffed animals.

She lives in Cambridge, MA, which together with Boston across the Charles River, is a hotbed of culture with some great museums.I needed to get the monkey ready for this upcoming adventure. First we checked out a bunch of the art galleries and antique shops along 125th St. in North Miami. Then we went across the street to MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art. This little pond is out in front.My friend James Mitchell was in town for a few day and the monkey asked him if he'd like to come along with us and check out the museum with us. James lives in Washington, D.C., another place with lots of museums. After we finished our little Art Walk we headed across the plaza to Starbucks for some coffee.

Tomorrow the monkey flies to Logan International Airport and will discover that Cambridge isn't as warm as Miami in the winter. Gabriella will soon get to meet her new Valentine monkey.
