This article brought me back

This article brought me back to the beautiful North Miami campus of Johnson & Wales University. I feel lucky to be there once and also feel little jealous of those who are studying there. Few years back I went to meet one of my old friends there. Its environment so attractive, I cannot explain. I would like to know if blue sun properties have business there. This information is an addition to my knowledge about this beautiful county. I heard about Oleta River State Park but never been to that area.
