I really like these vacations where I can catch up on my laziness. Well sort of.  Thank goodness I will squeeze in some old stuff on the next big trip, but that is a later story.  
Saturday, I had a last second change of plans and hung around South Beach.  I enjoyed the Germany-Argentina smackdown and then dodged some rain drops. After a walk to the end of the beach, really, I plopped down and finished off my audio book.  I was amazed that is stayed cloudy and the beach stayed packed.  I am sure if it was sunny there would be more people.  But I enjoyed the relaxing and the book.
And again today, I enjoyed more of the beach until the storm moved in.  It was quite the storm coming from 3 sides. Not the deluge of the other day but it was a nice consistent rain for 2+ hours. I hung out on the front porch of the hotel.  No southern antebellum Charleston thing with overhead fans, just a weather proof couch and a view of the people walking on by with a cover overhead to keep the rain off. It was enjoyable chatting with some fellow guests.
For the evening's entertainment, I grabbed a towel and headed down to the beach to partake in the Miami Beach fireworks. This was way better than sitting in the backyard and fighting off mosquitoes.  Instead, I had a nice onshore breeze and an excellent seat for watching the fireworks.  Great night.
Gee what to do tomorrow, more beach? Oh most definitely!
