In the street next to a Starbucks at Lincoln Road Mall. The scenery was nice; the weather was lousy.
Also, this hash was apparently an invasion of the Miami graticule by Palm Beach geohashers. Today, Miami - tomorrow, the world! Mwahahaha!
I got there slightly before Million_zillion below, but didn't actually manage to run into him. I was at the point a little before 4:00 and stayed there a few minutes and then walked around a bit, but had to get back to my car before the meter expired at 4:30, plus the weather was threatening to start a massive downpour any second.
Arrived late (as usual) - about 4:20pm or so. I was never able to get a GPS fix on my phone due to the the heavy cloud cover, but I found the hash point as indicated by Friend Google. I almost certainly walked through it one or twice while crossing the street, or at the very least I came within a few yards of it.
I waited around at the Starbucks for a bit, but I didn't see anyone that I could clearly identify as geohashing. There was a drizzle the whole time, but I had an umbrella so I walked around the open-air mall for a while, and went as far east as the beach. There was plenty of nice scenery, but I didn't want to look too much like a
complete tool tourist by taking pictures of people shopping.
Something close to a Déjà_Vu_Geohash; a picture I took in 2001 from a vantage point a mere block away from the hashpoint
