2020 Memorial Day Fun with Family
This Memorial Day has been surreal in many ways with the global pandemic going on, and this unusual holiday setting was the source of much reflection this weekend. Memorial Day in Miami Beach and Miami is usually slammed with activity and celebrating. This year was a little different, however. Never seen anything quite like it in my lifetime, but very thankful for those who sacrificed to allow our freedom and freedom of choice.
They opened the Ocean Drive street blocking them off for social distancing dining opening restaurants and it is empty! The streets, restaurants, clubs are closed or empty, but it doesn’t stop Miami on the water. The water was filled with boaters which can be a great alternative and choice to get out and enjoy life and the city with less risk if one is selective in terms of who they invite and screening them and practicing safe distancing and anti-infection practices. But Miami and Miami Beach are still spectacular and can be enjoyed with family and closest friends more safely, and in the smartest way…
The best part is this is all about family, freedom, and the right to choose. Great time to think, catch up, and work on things we made time excuses about in the past. It is funny to watch some of these characters on boats. All you can do is protect yourself and take care of yourself and if others choose to risk their own well-being that is their choice as well.
This too will pass! The day will come when we say remember the COVID19 pandemic! We are just thankful to be alive and well. God bless America and everyone who appreciates it!
