Wow. Just wow.
That sums up how I felt about yesterday's visit to the newly refurbished South Pointe Park. Even though it was a Saturday afternoon, the park was comfortably attended and quiet. Evidence of the work that has been done on the park was apparent as the sod was still fresh (and NOT St. Augustine grass! Woot!) and the trees were propped up, but the facilities were in overall excellent condition.
Me, my father and my girlfriend spent some time walking around the park and taking in its views and undulating elevations. We also found a nice spot under a palm tree and spent a 1/2 hour just relaxing and watching the activities around us.
The beauty of this park is something that everyone needs to experience, if for no other reason than to regain some faith in our government that they can get things right every now and then.
Here are a few pictures...
As we left, I spotted a younger couple walking into the park, carrying a Joe's plastic bag no doubt stuffed with claws waiting to be devoured. Those two had it right. Drive over to South Beach. Stop by Joe's and then hightail it over to South Pointe to have an afternoon feast on the soft lawn of the park as a cool breeze blows in off the Atlantic.
That's some quality South Florida living for you.
