#beachthursday – South Beach, Miami
South Beach, Miami. You can claim your prize at the prize shop if you have never heard of it. There are a few places that spring to everyones mind at the thought of beaches. This would be one of them. Once a place of criminals, cubans & little old ladies. Now its THE place to be for the beautiful people.
South Beach, also known as SoBe, was once just farmland until 1912 when the land was bought by influential Miami businessmen looking to establish an oceanfront city, independent of Miami. With its grand art deco architecture and vibrant nightlife, spending the day at South Beach has become a perfect place to be noticed.
But for some people on South Beach, it’s their job to watch you. The South Beach lifeguards have colourful lookout towers that stand out predominantly along the long white sand beach. On a hot summer’s day, I would imagine these lifeguards would be very busy, watching everyone & not just the ones who want to be.
