This man had just gotten off work and headed to the beach to get in an hour or so of kitesurfing. He has just launched it off the sand and will head for the water.
He wades out into the surf holding the kite in one hand and his board in the other and.....
.....voila! - he is off and running at breakneck speed in the brisk breeze.
Reversing direction, he makes a pass by my location. Yes, that little speck is he - he stayed offshore a ways.
This man just doesn't want to give up on the day yet - he has to go home tomorrow - where it is NOT sunny and warm.
Leaving the beach, I headed over to Ocean Drive, THE hot spot of South Miami Beach. As the blue hour deepens, the neon lights on the art deco buildings are turned on....
....and another evening of al fresco dining begins. Did I mention there is a blizzard at home today?
