Life in Miami Beach
We take our dingy 5 minutes down the canal. Tie up behind the dry cleaners - right across from the funeral parlor ( I feel like a hobo ) and walk one block west to the new Plublix grocery. So food has been easy from here. Another block is a public park where we can fill water jugs. The bus stops right at Pulblix. For laundry - we walk south 4 blocks (it's on 15th st for you sailors ) - again - easy. I love the walk down Lincoln Blvd which is pedestrian only - shops and cafes for 10 city blocks east - then cross Collins and cross Washington and voila there is the gorgeous white sand beach with aqua green water.
Carl and laura on Ekotopia are here with and this morning we find ourselves - the 2 boats - alone in this gorgeous spot. it's amazing how close we are to everything but it is quiet here - our neighbors are all waterfront houses - we found out yesterday that Martina Navratilova is one of our closest neighbors.
