Florida – Pahokee to Miami

Pahokee, Florida levee with Lake Okeechobee on the left. The city is on the right – lower than the level of the lake.
Lake Okeechobee is one of the branches of the Intracoastal Waterway.

After a nice day at Pahokee on Doug’s birthday (February 10) we headed south on February 11, 2020, back through the sugar cane fields, to the Davie-Fort Lauderdale KOA.

On February 12 it was 79 degrees in the morning when we headed down Route A1A through Miami Beach to South Beach to meet our friends Ira and Deb. We had a fun day, starting with a double-decker bus tour of Miami Beach and Miami.

One of our favorite stops in Miami was Little Havana.

They promised chocolate cigars, but we could not find any!

He didn’t help find the chocolate.
The Tampa to Miami road was important to the development of Florida.
Artists were invited to contribute.
There was lots of street art in Miami

We toured Miami Harbor by boat – it was billed as a famous peoples’ homes tours, but it seemed as if most of the places were formerly owned by someone famous. Humph.

Miami is a major container port.

We had a great dinner at Monty’s.
