"Lifeguard Tower at 12th Street" ~ I've had few beach experiences as enjoyable as my early morning strolls on South Beach in Miami, Florida. The extra-wide soft sand beach bordered by the bright turquoise waters and adorned with colorful, unique lifeguard towers make it unforgettable, not to mention the impeccable Art Deco hotels, vibrant nightlife and diversity of people in the area. My favorite tower shown here is located at the end of 12th Street and is one of a few that still stands after Hurricane Wilma hit South Beach with destructive forces in 2005. All of the towers that were destroyed have since been replaced with new towers that are also vibrant, unique, and awaiting the glance of my camera on an overdue return visit.
