Welcome to the Florida Keys!

After a lovely holiday at home, we flew to Key West on January 26th and were joined a few days later by Ree Walden and Mike Bishop, our first guests on this leg of our Loop. High winds and rough seas delayed our departure north to Miami by three days but gave us time to tour Key West and Marathon Key, where our boat was based.


The Florida Keys are connected by a series of bridges, the longest being the Seven-Mile Bridge which starts in Marathon, just a few blocks from our marina. The original bridge was constructed in early 1900 as part of Henry Flagler's Overseas Railroad. A new bridge opened in the 1980's, and the old bridge is now open for walkers and bikers. We enjoyed walking the old bridge to Pigeon Key on the right in the photo below.

The Flagler bridge was so long that even “men” were afraid while they were on it. I think it was heavily damaged by a hurricane not long after completion. I don’t know when/if he rebuilt it or if someone else did. His summer home in Palm Beach by The Breakers is magnificent. Hh

Do you remember when we went to Florida (I was REALLY young) and it was cold like that?? I'm sure Florida cold is much better than Kansas City's 15 degrees....😘
