Got to Miami Beach yesterday, before flying away on Tuesday.
The late afternoon was cool and the beach was becoming deserted, but the clouds were terrific.
I liked this plaque on the wall of the Cadet Hotel.
The Lincoln Street Mall is people watching par excellence,
along with cafes, shops, galleries and crafts.
One store was decorated with row upon row of vintage sewing machines.
The brown bag in the foreground was the only item I saw that was not black or white.
People watching resumed after dinner. The Miami Beach Community Church is in
a Spanish-influenced style. It is one of the older buildings on Lincoln Street Mall.
The New World Symphony Hall is a Frank Gehry 2011 collaboration with Yasuhisa Toyota, who
designed the acoustics. It is more box-like and less free-wheeling than many Gehry structures;
I liked it. I might have liked the landscaping even more.
I will be away again until mid-March.
