Water’s Edge

Almost every Sunday morning, we ride our bicycles to Deering Point. It is a public park in southern Miami-Dade County that was originally part of the estate of Charles Deering. Long before Deering’s arrival, Paleo-Indians lived on the lands 10,000 years ago, followed by the Tequesta and Seminole people. The spot in this drawing, framed by mangroves at the water’s edge, makes me think of the people who lived here long ago.
