DAY 82: MIAMI, FL TO HOMESTEAD, FL

With a fully charged ID. 4, we commenced the eighty-second day in Miami, FL with the familiar glow of the green lit Electrify America station. We came across a purple art piece that is a wiry bundle with purple glowing lights. Shoma Bazaar, an upscale restaurant, had dressed it’s trees outside with decorative lights that create a magical driveway. Two sculptures by Masoud Shojaee are also exhibited. A red one that is his depiction of his wife and a yellow one that is of his dog. We approached the downtown area and we could see the groups of large buildings from afar. An enormous glass guitar stands tall. The 450 foot instrument shaped building is the Hard Rock Hotel. The Miami skyline was presented behind a plethora of trees in the distance as we went up to West Palm Beach. Outside of a restaurant there was a dancing white bear. The fun bear took a photo next to the ID. 4. While crossing the Ocean Ave bridge in Boynton Beach, FL we saw several boats treading around the water. Two Georges Waterfront Grille was visible from the bridge and many people were eating at the dockside restaurant. We are happy to have two new sponsors, Verizon and T-Mobile on board with the ID. 4 tour. The two are in partnership with Volkswagen with the new CarNet program. CarNet is a new interface that manages the vehicle’s special features. Volkswagen has partnered with Verizon and T-Mobile for the CarNet’s service providers. We then went to Coconut Creek, FL to pay a visit to SOS children’s village. The organization works for the destitute and abandoned children taking care of the children’s boarding, health, and educational needs. We took a tour of the Coconut Creek campus guided by Jillian Smath. She showed us what the village does for the children and the types of programs they offer them. Rainer is donating $3,000 and has made donations almost every year to SOS Children Village since 2005 worldwide. His donation is used to nourish the village’s recreational activities. After the tour, we receded to Homestead, FL and our day was complete.
