Aerial Bight

I do from time to time drive to the top of the parking garage at 300 Grinnell and I look down upon the city spread before me. The great thing here is it is free, plus you don't have to pant to get up there.
This picture is looking north more or less, mentioned previously on this page showing inexpensive and behind them very expensive condos.
Across Caroline Street the Conch Train has a stop at the Flagler museum.
Properly masked and striding purposefully:
The loop bus for tourists used to be free and frequent, then they decided to charge a buck per ride, not the best idea probably to encourage riders, and now it is just "frequent."
Trumbo Road with at the top the Coastguard base gates, then school district administrative offices and then the dog park (obviously!) and someone camping in their van. Disgraceful behavior!
I keep hoping gaining height will be more interesting than it turns out to be. If you want to earn a view, and one that is slightly better than this one, pay to climb the many steps to the top of the Lighthouse on Whitehead Street. Or drive to the top of the Park and Ride garage and prepare not to be impressed even though as I said, it is free.
