Today was absolutely gorgeous and I definitely wanted to take advantage of it and do something productive. I didn’t want to deal with the traffic of this crazy Memorial Day Weekend to go see something on my Bucket List so I decided to walk around my neighborhood and check out some buildings I’ve seen in passing, as well as see some old favorites and use my new camera. I walked along Biscayne and 2nd Ave from 21st St south to 15th when I walked just the beginning of the Venetian Causeway. I run or walk the Causeway almost every day and haven’t photographed it with my new camera, but held off walking the whole 3 miles each way for another day. I then swung through Pace Park (seriously the best part of the neighborhood) on my way back.
There is a lot to see in the Omni neighborhood. There are a lot of low-rise apartments of many different styles that use to be all over the neighborhood (and many still are) and even earlier full of many houses (some quite large), plus many places of worship of different denominations and styles. Check out what I explored below, as well as some pics from an earlier exploration when I went north of my apartment!:
