Miami Beach Florida March 21. Tuesday
Today will be a photo post primarily. We took an urban hike of five miles along the boardwalk today and spent much of yesterday on the beach. Today would have been a good beach day but we decided to get exercise and re-explore the area.
There is an alternating paver sidewalk/raised boardwalk system that extends from much of the area from 46th St to around SouthPoint at the Miami Ship Channel (down to 1st St.) except for a few blocks from about 3rd to 5th. It is a fantastic way to get exercise and view both ocean and the high rises as it runs between the buildings and the dunes. Other than feral cats and bike riders on the boardwalk portion (where they hadn’t oughta be), there is little hassle.
The various condos/hotels/apartments have their own booth where people get umbrellas and beach chairs. Some of the booths are color coordinated with the color or style of the hotel.
South Beach is known for the unique lifeguard stands lining the beach. No two are the same. Bright colors and styles differentiate them.
Cruise ships go out Thursday through Monday so nothing today but here is a shot from Monday.
