Beach Club

The Beach Club is one of the original hotels on Seven Mile Beach. Soon it will be torn down and replaced with another faceless 7 story condo, just like all the other faceless 7 story buildings on Seven Mile Beach. When I first moved here, there was The Holiday, Inn, Beach Club, the Westin, The Marriotte, The Hyatt, and Treasure Island. There were a few 3 story condos and the rest was beach with pine trees and sea grapes. Now there’s hardly any more undeveloped beachfront property, and you can count all the pine trees (casurinas) on your fingers and toes.
It is sad to see this last original Seven Mile Beach hotel go.


Did I mention we had an earthquake last week? I didn’t feel it, The Wife didn’t feel it. I don’t want to minimize it, because a lot of people were scared and freaked out. The only damage I heard about was a sinkhole in some oceanfront apartments. I got this picture from someone in Bonaire, and I thought I got it before the quake, but later, realized I got it immediately after it. Wonder how it got me from Bonaire faster than I would have heard about it from our newsroom. (You DO know I work at a Radio Station, right?)
Also Pat Robertson (The most evil creature on Earth) said Haiti was cursed or something. ant that’s why they had an earthquake. Well here’s a cartoon from the local paper about that! I love this cartoon! That there’s some funny stuff, I don’t care WHO you are!

I live one quarter mile north of Hell, just FYI. For todays post I used red ink because of that.

I gotta go because I’m working today
