It’s official, Miami Beach is awesome.
We drove in last night cutting New Orleans a little short; we weren’t quite up to obliterating our livers at the time. We decided to camp here with the same method we used in Manhattan Beach: take advantage of free overnight street parking (our street). It works really well. You’re close to the beach, you’re in the middle of things, and it’s free. The downside is that you don’t have a bathroom handy. Also, in Miami, it’s really hot and humid, even at 8:00am in December. Imagine waking up in the back of a van striped down to your undies and still sweating uncontrollably… or just take our word for it.
To combat this, tomorrow morning as soon as I am awakened by muggy miserableness, I’m running straight for the beach and jumping in the ocean. The benefits are two-fold: cool off (although as we found out today the water’s very comfortable), and get some exercise. The second aspect comes in handy for us, as we’re both tipping the scales higher than we ever have before. Road Trip 2.0 now weighs a cumulative 6300 lbs (you can ponder the split). Shameful.
