Prime Real Estate

This bridge connects Virginia Key to Crandon Park at the tip of which is Cape Florida. Former US President Richard Nixon owned a home there. On Virginia Key are found a cluster of marine related institutions such as the Miami Seaquarium, The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (RSMAS,) the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA,) and the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML.) The city of Miami's water treatment plant is also on this island. This photo is taken from inside the prime real estate property of UM/RSMAS. This is Bear Cut (named for the Florida bear,) a channel connecting Biscayne bay to the Atlantic ocean, which is a famous location where reference tidal measurements are made and recorded on a long term basis. The bay is on the right, and the Atlantic ocean is on the left.

Beautiful and bright. The palm trees are swaying in the breeze.
Do visit MumbaiDailySnapshot and help me identify the flowers.

Nice picture of a great-looking spot in Florida. I have not been there but you couldn't ask for a better view.

Baby raccoons. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
