A Photo a Week Challenge: Water

I gave a lot of thought this week to what I was going to select. I have so many nice shots of shorelines, ports, boats, and beaches. I felt it would be a good opportunity, however, to draw attention to a couple of endangered waterfront sites in my hometown of Miami.

First up is Miami’s uniquely iconic Stiltsville, located in the waters of Biscayne Bay and now part of the Federal Park Service. Since my original post, some of the seven surviving structures suffered even more damage thanks to Hurricane Irma a few years ago. It would be a shame to lose this very special, and interesting, slice of Miami history.

The last photo is the Miami Marine Stadium, former site of boat races, concerts, and even sunrise religious services; an important player in Miami’s waterfront history. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s been declared one of the country’s most endangered historic sites and is the subject of a national campaign to save.

  1. Both beautiful in their own way and definitely should be saved, in my opinion. When I first moved here from Chicago, Stiltsville was truly an eye opener to me…and a living legend to the Florida landscape!
    Thank you for all your interesting And memorable posts. xoxo Sue

  2. What Sue said. I even moved here from the Chicago “area” but couldn’t say how many years I was here before I even knew about Stiltsville. I did attend boat races and a Jimmy Buffet concert at Marine Stadium.

I love hearing from my readers!
