And this the tiny little beach where I enjoyed a couple of famous Florida Bay sunsets:
Nice, hun? It rained a lot that night, obviously.
This is where I went all beach bum in the Miami area: the Crandon State Park
and Miami Beach
…which is super hip, as the pictures tell… don’t they?
This is called Rainbow Springs State Park, just north of bustling Orlando. Here I took the responsible swim, minding the alligators. Me and four other anonymous people.
This is driving to the Keys:
These were beaches along the Gulf Coast:
(where was everybody??)
(I sense a theme… heat, white sand and no people.)
This was on the Myakka Lake, where I saw plenty of alligators, safely from a boat:
It all made me tanned and happy.
Today I got up at 5 am, put on a wet suit, hopped on a boat and saw the sunrise in the water with a buncha manatees. Then snorkelled a bit in a spring and had breakfast.
