Watery Miami, It’s Alive

Wow. It’s been quite a journey.

Four months, over 120 miles, seven different ecosystems, bugs, burns, blisters, bunyons, early mornings, late nights, lots of paddling.

There were storms, and sharks, and giant tarpon. Sun poisoning. Heat exhaustion. Dehydration.

I got thrown off my boat in a rip current going across the infamous Haulover Inlet and lost a whole chapter to the salty sea.

Wow. It’s been fun. And I have Watery Miami, a new book and movie to show for it.

This All Comes Out On October 12th, 2020, But I’m Telling You First

Watery Miami is my one-hour nature documentary across 120 miles of Miami-Dade County by kayak. From South Beach to the Everglades through Little River, Coral Gables, Old Cutler, and Homestead, this epic adventure offers a flood of perspective, and a book of seven essays and 180 photos, on the nature, science, and history of South Florida.
