Jonathan’s got a nice photo taken from the Virginia Key bridge. Left to right: Port of Miami, South Beach (tall buildings), Fisher Island (squatter buildings), Virginia Key Beach Park, and the Pusty Relican. The water is the Biscayne Bay aquatic preserve. Don’t miss the link to the big version. Compare also the google map view (the view is roughly East-Northeast).

    I thought it was called Rickenbacker Causeway. Did I miss something?

    And “Rusty” Pelican. But “pusty” interestingly enough, means “empty” in Polish.

    Nice pics Jonathan.

    nonee~ I think the VKB is a section of the Rickenbacker. In other words, it would have been less specific to say it was the RC. But I’m not really sure, and I didn’t really think about it.

    Alex~ Wouldn’t want Canadians googling the RP winding up here now, would we?

    Of course not. You’ll already get all the ones googling Bouth Seach.

    Thanks. The caption was getting a bit long, but maybe I’ll add “Rickenbacker Causeway” for the search engines.

    omg — “Bouth Seach” — i’m totally stealing that.

    Makes sense, Alesh. But, I’m pretty sure they would have named the bridge after some person by now, like Miriam Alonso or Frank Bolanos.

    nonee~

    Of course — it’s called the William M. Powell Bridge. Come to think of it, I have no idea why I didn’t just call it that to begin with.

    Anyone know who William M. Powell is?
