Belle Island

Picture Post: South Beach

The closer we got to Miami, the more excited I got about South Beach.  For no particular reason except that it’s South Beach.  How many people get to drive their boat into the heart of a place like this?  Not many, so it became mandatory.

We anchored behind Belle Island, just south of the East Venitian Causeway Bridge.  It happened to be ideal because if you head north in the dink, it would land you near the crazy cool Lincoln Road Mall and if you head south in the dink, Miami City Marina lets ya park at their schmancy marina and stroll to the beach and Ocean Ave.  Oh, and Fla, remember when you asked me about Star Island?  Yeah, I guess we did see it!

Map of where we were anchored…  If only I could figure out how to drop pins and such :)

It was a great spot, minus the wakes from the ginormous motor yachts that went in and out all day, a small price to pay.  So far it’s better than Dinner Key, though (just sayin’).

Here’s a bunch of pics.  Click the first one for a slideshow and more ramblings…
