Well, the day has finally come and we must leave this little bit of paradise. We have been here longer (by choice) then anywhere else in our 7 years of fulltiming, and it's been great. Of course what made it so great were the people we met and became friends with, ok well the weather helped a little....lol. It seems us and one other couple are the lone hold outs from our group of friends, everyone else has headed on up the road and we are not far behind them now.
We really didn't do a whole lot over the last two weeks, we did however take a glass bottom boat ride out to the reef, 6 miles south of Key West. It is the 3rd largest living reef in the world and we were able to see it right up close as it was just a couple of feet below the glass. We were going to take a snorkel trip out to the reef, but the weather had different ideas, storms blew in and churned the water up for days on end, so a last minute change was in order. We want to give a shout out to Fury Water Adventures, we booked all our trips through them and were very pleased with there service, so look them up for some fun times if you should happen to make it down this way.
Now when I said the weather turned for the worse, we had a couple of days of really high winds. The Gulf of Mexico forms the shore line of the RV Park here and there are several boats anchored a few hundred yards off shore. This poor Cabin Cruiser seemed to bare the brunt of it, we woke up to find it beached in the shallows just off the RV Park. As of now it is still there and the owners are trying to figure out how to move it with out doing much more serious damage.
Tomorrow we leave for 6 days at Everglades National Park and then into Ft Lauderdale to visit our son and his family for a few days. Then on to parts unknown, well toward St Augustine FL and Savannah GA. anyway. Looks like there's no cell service or internet access in the Everglades so, we'll leave you with this standard Key West Sunset and we'll see you in a week or so!!!
