Nice view. An upscale version of Hitchcock’s “Rear Window.” Enjoy the cool breeze, Carl, and I hope Sandy stays away from your neighborhood.
October 25th, 2012 at 07:16
Probably heavy rains and 30-40 mph wind gusts but should be no big deal although thunderous achooos can knock out power a few days. I have been through every one here since 1954.
October 25th, 2012 at 07:12
Cool! Your porch looks like a great place to hang out!
October 25th, 2012 at 07:17
The sunrises ! The sky is very big here.

Ha ha! Amazing how similar people are across the world. About 15 years back we moved to Bombay (now Mumbai) which is a crowded, coastal city in the west and where real estate is the most expensive in the country. The real-estate agents showing us apartments would invariably sell them as having a “great view of the Arabian Sea”. And, invariably, that “view” could be had by standing on one leg on a stool, craning your neck to one side, shutting one eye and looking through a powerful telescope from the other.

Miami Beach 2 miles east !

Wow – another planet – but you look satisfied scribbling in your sketch book – no snow or freezing temperatures for you but I’m sure you have your own particular weather demons to deal with…
October 25th, 2012 at 07:26
June through end of Sept is like Panama with Bataan Death March. But now through May is divine.

I have lived inland most of my life. Finally made it by the water.
October 25th, 2012 at 09:05
Love this sketch, Carl! More, more, more!
October 25th, 2012 at 09:49
Used to paint and sketch and carve years ago but you lose your touch and have to relearn a lot of technique stuff. You have not posted in a long time.
October 25th, 2012 at 12:50
You haven’t lost your touch! Would love to see your paintings. I just posted yesterday – finally! Slowly getting back to it.
October 25th, 2012 at 09:32
Now I’m really jealous. Not only do I not have that view. I’m in an office with no windows.
October 25th, 2012 at 09:51
You can always hang some posters. The office cannot own your imagination. I collect and hang big plaster and ceramic brightly painted suns on my walls in apt.
October 25th, 2012 at 10:23
Actually, I have lots of photos I’ve taken of my garden and other beautiful places we have traveled to hanging in my office. I consider those my window, but once in awhile, it would be nice to see the sky.
October 25th, 2012 at 09:37
Wow! Nice. Love your view and, of course, the palm trees.
October 25th, 2012 at 09:52
It is pleasant and serene.

Awesome!! What a view to take in..
October 25th, 2012 at 18:09
I like it. Have been here year and a half.
October 25th, 2012 at 11:09
Wow, that is quite the view of the tsunami coming straight [or is that strait?] at you, from the Atlantic Ocean.
October 25th, 2012 at 18:10
Those hurricanes can be a touch disconcerting – British for Oh My God !
October 26th, 2012 at 00:26
Yeah, I guess Sandy is heading our way for Monday.. Hope she is out of gusto, by that time.
October 25th, 2012 at 11:38
OMG! I want to come visit!
October 25th, 2012 at 18:12
Someday I wish all my blog buddies could have a week long chit chat under trees with breeze and iced tea.
October 25th, 2012 at 11:56
If Burn Notice is to be believed, there should be bikini clad women everywhere. And a few random explosions.
October 25th, 2012 at 18:13
I am a Burn Notice fan but I would not swear it is made in Miami. I never see much in the way of landmarks like Miami Vice had.
October 25th, 2012 at 14:32
Great view. But, I imagine the giant words floating there spelling out Atlantic Ocean get in the way a bit. I guess you get used to it.
October 25th, 2012 at 18:15
Yeah big words can block the sun and
big words in Washington prevent
anything from getting done.
October 25th, 2012 at 14:43
Tall, whispering palm trees sway serenely along the silvery shores of Florida.. ah, bliss!
October 25th, 2012 at 18:16
Yeah, but hurricane Sandy should brush us for a day or so. It’s stormy here now and the thing is far away.
October 25th, 2012 at 19:11
Nice, Carl. Palm trees really make a place, don’t they?
October 25th, 2012 at 19:13
I’d like finding some buried treasure here better than palm trees. Hmmm. Maybe the scene is the treasure.
October 25th, 2012 at 19:30
Aren’t you a lucky duck!!! Great view!!! In response to your comment on my blog about feeding a group of squirrels, the squirrels at our place are reeking havoc on our house,and we don’t even have a wooded lot. They can be stinkers!! No food for them! Margie
October 27th, 2012 at 21:16
Yes they can be possessive. Of other people’s stuff.
I HAVE A VOICE

October 27th, 2012 at 21:17
Thanks. I have to practice general sketching.
October 25th, 2012 at 23:55
What an amazing view. I love your wide windows. They look so sparkling clean!
October 27th, 2012 at 21:18
Actually that’s a screened in porch but I did not know how to indicate that with lines that would not obscure.
October 26th, 2012 at 00:26
Nice view! The only water we see is what comes out of the faucet
October 27th, 2012 at 21:19
I can’t imagine that having lived in Miami most of my life.
October 26th, 2012 at 21:01
I see dark hair, no beard… Hmmm, I bet it’s really a drawing of some guy in Lower slobovia!
Well I am lowest – first floor.

Reminds me of those New Yorker pics – http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=OP5&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&biw=1138&bih=532&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=1QMzRh0fDz71ZM:&imgrefurl=http://adrianmckinty.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html&docid=x3kbLoooYjk1RM&imgurl=http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Lu1ECQKkSn8/TIGfKE0E9YI/AAAAAAAABMI/Hwe0bZo0Ggg/s1600/NewYorker1976-03-29cover.png&w=440&h=600&ei=kb6LUMTnGsGh0QW_yYEw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=846&vpy=119&dur=302&hovh=262&hovw=192&tx=84&ty=169&sig=104056380363203537512&page=1&tbnh=141&tbnw=103&start=0&ndsp=23&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0,i:87 that sort of thing
October 27th, 2012 at 07:00
Oops – a bit of a long link there – should have tinyurl’ed it.
October 27th, 2012 at 17:26
I was long a reader of The New Yorker. It is a shadow of its former self but still every cartoonist’s dream to be published on its pages. I suggest you go to their site every Monday morning and enter the Cartoon Caption Contest. I’ve been trying for 7 years. They also have covers as jigsaw puzzles you can do on computer and my grand kids love to do them.

I really like the view from your window, Carl! Nice home!
October 27th, 2012 at 21:20
Renting right now but hope to buy here when my townhouse sells.
October 27th, 2012 at 20:37
Great view Carl & great drawing too.
October 27th, 2012 at 21:21
I need a lot of work as have not done any real sketching many years.
October 28th, 2012 at 11:27
Beautiful sketch, Carl.
October 28th, 2012 at 14:30
Thank you so much.
November 2nd, 2012 at 11:42
Like many others have said, that’s a great view Carl!
November 2nd, 2012 at 13:31
A touch of fresh clean air always available. I could do with less people and buildings though.
