If you don’t know what this event is, in a nutshell it’s a competition where teams try to make their own aircraft/glider. For more info check out: http://www.redbullflugtagusa.com
This is my 100TH POST since starting this photo blog back on April 15th of this year. I try to post something once a day, but that can be easier said than done sometimes.
I started this as a “hey, this is awesome, you should see it too” site, but I’ve noticed it’s attracted a variety of fans like “snow bird” northerners, hopeful tourists, former Floridians, nature lovers, photographers, fellow SCUBA divers and ocean lovers alike. It’s always fun to read everyone’s comments and see what everyone “likes”. So please continue to do so and spread the word about this site if you know someone who might appreciate it the way you do. Above all, thank you supporting Beauty of Florida!
This photo is from Fort Lauderdale’s 100 year anniversary last year. They had this giant “100” set up by the beach directly across from the world famous Elbow Room.
Happy World Ocean Day
I honor of World Ocean Day, here’s look inside the shipwreck from my previous post. A popular hangout as you can see!
This is the first picture I’ve posted here that wasn’t taken by me. I handed the camera off to my wife for this shot of me exploring the Tracy wreck, aka Ken Vitale Memorial. It’s a 132 foot oil rig supply boat sitting in 70 feet of water just off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. There are many wrecks here not far from the beach, but you do still need a boat to get to them. We even swam to a 2nd wreck from this one. Some of the best diving in the States is right here in South Florida. Come down and go for a swim!
I almost forgot, after the air show I saw the Rocket Man! This thing looks like a lot of fun!
