Warm weather on a cloudy day at the beach, Miami

We were hoping for sun and blue skies for our beach adventures. The weather gods decided different, a cloudy sky and strong winds, it even rained for ten minutes. It was however warm, about 25 degrees, just perfect weather for a walk in the sand. The beach itself is wide with beautiful dunes and unique plants. A cargo ship left the port while waves bring seaweed to shore. The Miami lifeguards were present in their small elevated cabins but there were no swimmers. Seagulls and Kristel pose in front of modern sky scrapers. We end the article with some pictures of the pier, seagulls and palm trees.

We hoopten op zon en blauwe hemel voor onze strandavonturen maar de weergoden beslisten er anders over, een bewolkte lucht met sterke winden, het regende zelfs voor een tiental minuten. Het was echter warm, zo’n 25 graden, het perfecte weer voor een wandeling in het zand. Het strand is breed met heel mooie duinen en unieke planten. Een vrachtschip verlaat de haven terwijl de golven zeewier op het strand spoelen. Miami lifeguards zijn aanwezig in hun verhoogde uitkijktorens maar er waren geen zwemmers. De meeuwen en Kristel poseren voor moderne torenflats. We eindigen ons artikel met enkele foto’s van de pier, meeuwen en palmbomen..

  5. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.

  8. It looks like you both were sharing the beach with the birds. Momentary rain in Florida is not unusual, but the warmth is always nice.
