We spent the entire day in Miami Beach also named The South Beach. We had a chance to swim thanks to sunny and warm weather. In contrast, the ocean was too wavy, and swimming in the ocean was too dangerous. Even we witnessed a sad accident that one guy sunk while he was swimming. The rescue team tried to save him for a long time. I hope he could survive. 

We continued our day on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach at night for new year’s eve and to watch the fireworks show. However, the show was canceled due to the heavy wind. Therefore, we just made the count down and celebrated the new year. 

Meanwhile, both the beach and Ocean Drive was too crowded. I have never seen such a great number of people together since the pandemic began.
