relaxed and well-rested, no decision making, except if exiting at beach access 12 on the way back from siesta village/beach or riding until #13 at the end as the weather so beautiful and it's just awesome to be here. in fact, there is nothing special you can do on siesta key, but enjoying the beach and sunshine, so you're obliged to ease and that's what vacation is all about. as far as we concerned, however, we're quite active, biking each day up and down the beach, and up and down the key too, so with the morning run on the beach as well, that's around 19 miles a day i guess.
with regard to the temperatures, no promised 80s f this week. after three days at 78 f, again changeable weather which is very unusual for march and upsets everybody. siesta key was rainy and windy this morning -- on top of that, hammering and home improvement noises on the property made waking up a kind of nightmare too... yeah, should not forget to mention that the place we're staying …

chilly days

first week of our florida vacation is over -- means two hours waiting time for the immigration at miami international airport, seven morning runs on the beach, three days of cloudy weather and four days of bright sunshine and blue sky with no single cloud. except last tuesday with 75 f, still chilly temperatures in the mid 65 f caused by winter storm saturn that blows cold air from the country's east north regions. it's definitively unusual to experience siesta key wearing jeans and socks... nevertheless even quite something to ride the bike on the deserted beach from north to south with the strong wind in the back, vitamin d production started again and we already lost our anaemic complexion, at least on the face and hands ;) in any case, fortunately, temperatures are supposed to rise up from friday on and to stay in the 80's until the end of our stay. phew.

cold on siesta key

omg! that's so rude. after having gone more or less patiently through this long dark german winter, we finally landed in miami, florida but the long-awaited sunny-hot weather still keeps us waiting... the first day in south beach was cloudy at 63 f, the second day on the road to siesta key wasn't better, and today has been even worse with max 58 f and north wind – at least, we could enjoy one hour of sunshine during a run on the beach this morning. anyway. it's good to be back on the island and the forecast reports 68 f for tomorrow. never give up!
