Mr D invades Miami

Sun, Sea and Spring break - it's Miami baby!

Note that this is a mix of 3 trips with 2 differnt cams... and 3 years from the first to the last... so if there's something that seems different... it is!

Well... I have no real plans for spring anyway - and it could be cool if we could gather a small S&B swuad and go hit the town... Scandi-style!

Is it true that there are lots of big waves in Miami (and in most other places in Florida)? Someone told me he couldn't swim because of this. I found that a little strange.

Miami does not get big waves unless a hurricane comes by. The ocean there is sheltered by the Bahamas. The waves really start in probably Stuart, which is north of Palm Beach. Dont go to the gulf coast looking for waves either, and if u want big big waves as seen in the movies do not go to the atlantic coast at all. Great "old" pics btw, even a month's difference in pics can be like a few decades difference in other cities.

Compared to Europe yes the waves are fairly large - and it get's VERY deep VERY quickly on Miami Beach....

However that's part of the charm - jumping into the waves having fun that way... for normal swinning I use the pool at the hotel...

If you want calm water you can just go to the other side of the peninsula to Clearwater Beach, it's very nice there too...

Ft. Lauderdale a short drive north of Miami is more calm... I'll upload the pcis I have of that place in the next few days...

Very nice photos.

I was there once, many good people around town, and endless parties.
