Wednesday Walk with Me in Miami Beach

Over the course of the last year - two years now, I think - there has been precious little in the way of traveling anywhere. Sometimes I felt lucky just to go downstate.

There was a business trip planned back in January, for a full week, in Miami. That trip ended up Covid-scuttled and postponed until this week. Instead of a full week in Miami, however, the trip was reduced to just two full days. Alas.

And full they were! I got into Miami late Monday night, had a full day on Tuesday, and ended up making a point of skipping out of a session on Wednesday to go enjoy the sun.

So, come with me down the long path down Miami Beach. The hotel had bikes to borrow, so I rode, not walked, but I did stop occasionally for photos.

The first thing that caught my eye, of course, was a fire hydrant. Isn't it cute? I haven't taken a picture of a fire hydrant in a while, so I feel somewhat pleased now.

This is the long path. It really is long. Miles. Miles. Beautiful. The beach is to one side and the hotels and restaurants are on the other. It's either the left or the right side, depending on which side you're facing.

The beach is also home to a number of cat colonies. There are cats everywhere.

But... beach! I'm at the beach, and that's what the photos ought to be of.

This week happened to be spring break for a lot of students, so there were people absolutely everywhere. Old people. Young people. Large people. Small people. Gay people. Straight people. Everyone you might think of, all out enjoying the sun and the day. No one cared who you were or what you were doing as long as you weren't bothering anyone else. It was awesome. I stayed a bit at a volleyball court to watch these young kids try to play volleyball.

This was the point I stopped to turn around. I had been riding about about 35 minutes and knew I'd need to get back to the hotel for a shower before dinner.

Here was the champion, all terrain, super versatile bike that the hotel had to borrow. I tried to ride on the sand, quite unsuccessfully. It was a far cry from my mountain bike but it was definitely a bike, and it was awesome to get out and ride!

I did find one small spot of beach that wasn't overcrowded with people. I would have stayed, but did need to get ready for the company dinner.

And one last picture, from well after the walk; the view from the roof of the restaurant where the company dinner was.

The walk did not end there! A few of us walked back to the hotel, about 2 miles from the restaurant. I learned a few Bulgarian curses on the way. Now that's what I call a success!

#wednesdaywalk is a tag organised by my good friend @tattoo-djay. It's a day to enjoy getting outside, walking about, and getting the limbs moving. I don't get to do this nearly enough.

That view from the restaurant is awesome, and how cool that the hotel had loaner bikes and cool you managed to sneak out of a session and enjoy some time in the sun by the beaches

I can relate though many of the work trips I did over the years, to some very interesting, and some very scary for that matter places, it was all work with long days and only free time late at night and so I never got to explore, work really does get in the way of our fun sometimes lOl

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

It was certainly nice to get out. I was ribbed a little for it at the company dinner that night ("So, how did you like that last session?" and so forth), but considering the last session was solely a sales pipeline session, I think I came out ahead.

I cannot believe I missed this! I have been waiting for some cool beach shots, isn't it glorious there? I am so glad that you got out and enjoyed some rum-infused Vitamin D, I hear it is the best they have on offer there!

The last shot is amazing and the night lights are so beautiful! The day shots are in some ways better because I know you were enjoying yourself! Not that you weren't at night, but, was there wind in your hair and salt the roar of the ocean in your ears? You #wednesdaywalk is just the way I would like to spend many of my days, even though I never want to live in Florida again! Twice burned on that assignment, now, I just like being a visitor.

Great pictures and I love the bike! Many of the Airbnb also have bikes, like many of the beachside hotels. It makes life close to perfect. Did you get any bit burned??

I got in no way burned at all! I think that ride was the only sunshine I saw the entire trip. honestly, I'm bummed, but there is nothing to be done about it. At least I got to get out the once!

As I was riding by the beach volleyball and workout areas I had briefly considered taking more pictures for a #meatmarketfriday post, but felt that this post would be enough. 😁

This was a great post! I was sorry I missed it when it came out!

I'm glad you got out too! I've been on trips that i didnt get any time and I know it's their nickel. If not on a project, I have asked to extend a day or two for sightseeing. I have only been turned down twice.

The People In My Head.

Kool aid centered children playing with the adult in me. Absolute child guidance ensuring unneeded demise engineered by sheltered evil genius thinking persuading with uninvited fucking positions to be a good idea. Misguided by fame seeking greed is all I’ve seen appear. How do you find recruits for dumb shit like this.

Would you create a never ending baseball game by hiring a sales person to pitch an invisible ball?

Probably not because you have to actually throw a visible ball right?

Maybe find an actual pitcher with the slowest ball thrown known to man. So slow some people actually start dyeing of old age waiting for the ball to arrive another dehydrated batter in need of another replacement brave enough to wait for the swing. If the ball is thrown so slow wouldn't they call that real and amazing at some point? They called in scientific calibration to measure this slowness to ensure movement is still happening they wanted to win so bad. The fans wont help it end either because it may hurt their favorite team?

Q: Will one pitch to first swing complete a baseball game as a win?
A: yes

The news: Your hired.

Response: Jumping up and down excitedly wailing and screaming in delight “I got the job, I got the job”

Just so happy someone finally thinks they are really smart as they fail a test applying for a sales position.

They count on fortune and famed relations to save them while they hide in lies. I despise the mind set so this will be fulfilling already knowing they lost and refuse acceptance. They shocked me on the yes side as I wrote that sentence. Pathetic.

Wanting me to make them my partner they often say. Evil liars asking me if they can be my partner? I’ll pass, I would rather die in reply.

They apply shocks all day every day to thoughts knowing they induce harsh mental frustrations. They fuck with my head hoping I hurt myself with grief. They lied to me about the last sentence by shocking me no right after I wrote it to prove my point I guess. Knowing there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.

I hope they all fucking die being mentally tormented into hopeless anguish inducing painful stress severe enough to kill themselves. Exactly how they make me feel more than often. They love hopeless moments they induced then parade about it in my head when it happens like its a celebration. They are so self centered and even refuse to relieve those feelings in any way. The severity of their crimes go completely over the heads of others in their groups. When they know its being done and will be accessories. Hope they do something the judges may show leniency for. I’m sure they are just self centered screws too. None of them care who they fuck to stay there.
How to screw a screw wont be googled when I’m the driver.

Would you say yes to anything someone thinks because you care? They cant tell a good idea to save their own asses. Maybe they just want something for daddy to pin on the fridge this year.

I know they aren't bright enough. Seeing they cant get around in me hyped on their drug of choice stoned on fame in continual daily rejoice.

They show no remorse for anything and pander to the like minded as equals. I’m ashamed to be in the company of them.

Facts in due time? Even if I Die.

They keep me in complete imprisoned distress at all times.

I hope a caring person rallies a hunt to kill these fuckers along with everyone associated to them. Many will thank you too as people find out what they did to us.

Now chanting how famous I am knowing I hate it. How fucking gay huh. I could give 2 shits about exposure. I have Zero shame in my game. Cant wait to put them in the trash were they belong. I should already be dead because of them. So they must be failing. All they do is shit that stalls me from expediting information they had proof of five years ago. Thinking they are the only ones that can do this job is a huge mistake around the stacking of financial decks.

Dear slimy moderators at reddit. They are telling me “no relationship” as I explain the irreparable damage they have done to us using continually a blatantly ignorant failed approach. It bleeds blindness and not in tune with reality.

How do you get a squatter out of your house when your imprisoned in it. They refuse to leave and wont accept you irreversibly hate and totally despise them? Every time you ask them to leave or insult them they say “no relationship, no relationship, no relationship,”. They stay just to drive you crazy. Either they are a mental case or truly misguide by themselves and fucking stupid. They hide behind their own made up environment in me. I told them no the entire time. They act like I didn't see it coming or I even wanted anything with them to begin with. Just flabbergasted that I hate them so much. I was never fooled and couldn't be swayed that way to begin with. They have the mind set of my pussy will cure it all. If that was true they wouldn't need me.

Funny cunts are saying how proud of me they are as I Finnish this. Pathetic self appointed ruthless ass holes that could care less about who gets fucked to get where they are going. They always tell me how proud they are when I get nothing done. Its a sick as fuck mind game that makes you vomit. Just told me I’m awesome after that now too. As they do often when I instill my feelings about how shitty they are. Another mental mind fuck they like to screw me with intent. I cant stand to be with them at all. They flushed everything I had in life down the toilet to treat me as a vulnerable desperate target willing to accept unwanted resolutions to get my life back. They wont even accept this as my feelings they are so conveluted.

Bad bimbo dreams from pussy hell I’m in. Hope they die as last in the end. @battleaxe you creepy pussy wagging cunt. You cant fairy dust this shit way you dumb ass.

Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself. They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.

They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?
