SOUTH BEACH POLICE PATROL!

Well, the crowds have grown to unacceptable numbers in certain areas of South Beach............no, not the adults, but teens and college students who have arrived in massive numbers. This used to not be a problem until they started getting careless. Fights, garbage (and I mean a LOT of garbage), bottles, liquor, etc., and soon it was out of control. So now the police are making their presence known, and that the South Beach area will not be a playground for those who don't want to take care of the beach or respect other beach goers right to have a pleasant day at our wonderful sunspot. Beware everyone, the police are watching!

Elegant Seagull!

Recently I captured a seagull flying that I consider one of my most "graceful" shots. I was unaware of the beautiful lines that flowed across this gull's wings. Going to be on the lookout for more shots like this!

PRESIDENTS DAY AT SOUTH BEACH!!!

I don't think I've EVER seen this many people at South Beach in Miami, FL, on ANY day! Talk about a LOT of beach lovers! The life guards let me go up on their platform to take this shot. It's nice to see so many folks enjoying the beautiful beaches in Florida, but it was sad to see how much garbage and trash they left behind when they left. Seriously, you have to wonder if they have any respect for the other patrons who many not appreciate how unclean they left it. I wonder if they would like people coming onto their yards and leaving all their garbage behind? Hopefully some will read this and realize the beach won't be very appealing to others if they don't clean up after themselves......................

CURRENT CIRCLES IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Here's an interesting photo for you! On our recent flight from Newark, NJ, to St. Maarten, we flew over a relatively calm Atlantic Ocean. In the distance, we saw "swirl" marks on the surface of the ocean. These were probably 50 or so miles across. As we flew closer to them, I couldn't help but take a photo of this phenomenon as I'd never seen anything like this before. Interesting, eh?
