Having a stop in Miami, Florida for a day is not one of the more exotic ports of call one can have on a cruise boat. Especially since I’ve visited several times before. However, I’m not yet to the point where I will not disembark and explore whatever the port may be.
Not having done any planning, a quick search of the internet led me to Wynwood Walls, the designated graffiti filled, urban art section of mid-town. I took a $20 cab ride to the site and explored my way back to port. The main section is a fenced off urban park strictly designated for some beautiful and very large walls of graffiti art. I do not know how permanent they are or if they get painted over periodically. Some are so appealing I would sure hate to lose them, but that is the nature of this type of art. In the real world, they get painted over and changed almost daily.
I’m wondering how many people know what Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot stands for….
This is part of a yet unfinished huge mural that will ultimately spell ‘LOVISM’, located a few blocks from Wynwood Walls.
These next two are also not part of the Wynwood Walls, but some of the graffiti art which fills mid-town Miami.
There is another glut in the Miami condo market brewing. Maybe this is an area to eventually consider for settling down…..

Back at the cruise ship, I took this 180 degree view from our balcony of the ship filling up the tank for the trip across the Atlantic.
