Wednesday, March 26, Miami Beach
Windy day in paradise but we made the best of it. Sleeping late was the first priority. We followed up with a long walk along the boardwalk. The boardwalk is wide and populated by walkers, joggers, bikers, Segway riders, etc. It is a popular place to exercise and people watch. It runs between the ocean/beach/sand dunes and the hotels.
As we headed north along the boardwalk, we detoured over onto the beach. We thought we saw two horses, probably mounted police. Instead we saw bulls. Brahman bulls. Well, of course, we had to check it out. While I took pictures, safely behind the line the security people were trying to maintain, Chris chatted up a beach chair attendant. Evidently the city of Miami Beach was filming a commercial. Not quite sure what for, but the scene was interesting. It is not unusual for us to come across one or more photo shoots during our visits to South Beach but this was our first bulls on the beach.
After lunch, we headed for the beach. Today was cooler and the wind was strong, strong enough to blow sand as you are laying on the beach. Usually we go to the beach around 11, a later arrival made sense today. So a shorter beach time meant less sand blasting and the beach time was enjoyable. We will try tomorrow for a longer spell.
Dinner was down the street at one of the many restaurants with live music lining Ocean Drive.
