On the road to south Florida, this famous eyesore sits at the Yeehaw Junction right before the Florida turnpike exit.
Sitting poolside at Brett’s aunt and uncle’s winter condo, we had a nice dinner with the family, watching the dinner boats go by.
Construction cranes are everywhere here, including next to our hotel.
On the road to Hallendale Beach sits a big statue in the parking lot at the horse race track. After the statue, we turn right to head over the bridge to the beach.
We stopped by Hard Rock Hotel to see the new guitar shaped hotel going up. The last 2 are shots from the top of the parking deck. You can barely make out the skyline of the beach.
The road back to Tampa, we headed across Alligator Alley (I75). We never see alligators on this road though. Just miles of the above view.

It’s that time of the year. The sun goes down right in the middle of the channel. On sunny afternoons, the family room and dining room are glowing orange.

Is this duckweed? The swamp was covered in it.

It was a really slow morning at Chesnut Park. Walking along the boardwalk I started to notice the different green things in the swamp. The water levels were high since it’s been raining most days during August. I wouldn’t have been walking through there if there wasn’t a boardwalk. I was trying to be creative and find different things to take pictures of but it was so hot and muggy it was hard to focus. I only got a few things that morning but I’m going to start paying attention to the scenery at the parks.
