I shot over 400 photos today. There are always so many great scenes to photograph. We never get tired of running this section of the waterway. Biscayne Bay is just one more hour south to the best place for sailing. We will move over there Friday, for now, it is a day in Miami Beach.
We are running a LIVE tracking map. When the boat moves, this map is updated. Also our blog home page shows our current position.
