A Room with a View

Just like when choosing a house or condo, when selecting a marina, the view we'd have was important to us. Although we didn't select our marina based on this criterion alone, we certainly lucked out in terms of the view we got. Our waterfront home comes complete with a (partial) view of the Miami skyline:

Upon moving to our marina, one of our favorite things to do in the evening was to sit aboard Sea Gem and admire the glow of the city lights from across the bridge. We were in heaven.

Of course, when we arrived in Miami, it was hurricane season and the marina was fairly empty. Then, the seasons changed. As summer turned to fall, our marina neighborhood began filling up with boats--big boats. On the very last day of summer, this arrived:

As you can see from the image above, the beautiful buildings of the Miami skyline are completely hidden by a single yacht. While the sight of an enormous yacht is certainly a spectacle, we much prefer our city view.

The other day, I became overjoyed when I looked outside and saw that our neighbor was leaving...

...or so I thought. By the end of the day, the enormous ship had returned, and once again, our view was obstructed:

For now, it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer before the sparkling lights of downtown Miami are visible from our boat.
