Wonderful set of photos! In the late 90s I was in the heavy truck export business and spent A LOT of time in Miami. Your photos are exactly how I remember it. Now it's so overbuilt, it doesn't look like the same place!

Thanks for posting these!

After living in Virginia since 1969 and my wife since the early 19800’s she took advantage of a work opportunity and we moved here just this week.  Going from a four bedroom house in the DC suburbs to a two level condo on the 15th floor of a high rise overlooking Biscayne bay is quite a change.  Needless to say there’s a lot of adjustment mentally and getting used to very different surroundings.  I retired last December so I won’t miss the cold weather and will miss the space I had for all my kits (most of which are in storage at the moment) but we will look for a place with more room in a few years after the housing prices go back down.

I love Miami and the Keys..lived in Marathon in the Keys from '81-88 through middle school and high school.  Used to go to Miami on the weekends.   Haven't been back in years, it's changed a lot.

welcome  Mr T to Miami

I'm laughing hysterically ...

lived here since 1978 and I'm trying to figure out how to move back up North - maybe to Virginia ...

but I'm stuck in Palmetto Bay for now !!

You ARE going to the Amelia Island concourse in March, aren't you ???

Thanks.  I have heard from several people how crazy Miami is and that the traffic is horrible.  I guess you can say that is true about the DC area as I have seen the population in that area double in 20 years.  So for now it’s cool and since I do NOT have to commute every day I can chill and enjoy the view of all the traffic and the cruise ships coming and going.  Lastly, I pity the fool that makes fun of this A-Team van. 😁
