Coastal Sunrise

The early morning sunlight peeks through some clouds, illuminating some freighters on the horizon in Miami Beach. This was the last bit of interestingness happening on the horizon this particular morning…after the sun climbed above the clouds, everything on the waterfront was lit with gorgeous rich sunlight…but the horizon was overly bright, so everything became a bit washed out.  Was thrilled to catch some early rays in warmer weather…looking forward to its return to us here in New Hampshire!

Memorial Bridge Railing & The Standard Hotel Miami

Today’s post is short and sweet.  Yet another take on Harbor Place from the Memorial Bridge seen above…from the warmer archives of April.  The majestic, yet deteriorating bridge is critical to both the Kittery, ME and the Portsmouth, NH economies and residents of both communities. As sad as it is, the fate of the bridge continues to be unknown as all of the needed funds haven’t yet been set aside for its desperately needed renovations.

Below is a little taste of what I think all of us New Englanders could use in mid-January, a taste of a Miami waterfront resort – poolside.  The shot was taken at The Standard Hotel | Miami (also known as the Lido Spa Hotel), overlooking their gorgeous infinity pool on the oceanfront.  I was lucky enough to spend the weekend in Florida getting some sunshine and remembering what warm weather was like, thanks to a certain special someone.
