Well now that we’ve done miles on the bikes I can tell you that Key Largo has a lot of restaurants, resorts and motels. All the beach areas seem to be in front of the restaurants or resorts. We biked to the Atlantic side and couldn’t get to the shore unless we trespassed private residences or property owned by some sort of club. So for the tourist I would say there’s a lot to offer. For the cruiser there is West Marine, a decent dinghy dock, good holding in the anchorage and plenty of wildlife within site of your boat. And for us the last two things are at the top of our list of what’s important to us. This is in Tarpon Basin, now when we get to Gilberts in Blackwater Sound, about five more miles north, we may have a different perspective altogether.
Here is a shot of one inlet to the canals that run behind some homes. The water was just flying through there! The house on the left was for sale. Could you believe 1.3 million?? The road noise was constant and for 1.3 mil, I think I would want some quietness.
Took in the Seafood Festival on Saturday and had a great time. The weather was perfect and even the small kids there were enjoying themselves on the various attractions, such as a zip line and rock wall. The whole atmosphere was laidback and relaxed. And the food, let’s just say we could have blown a big portion of our budget here.
Check out the size of the pans!
Inside the Festival…
I can’t remember the pirates name but he was absolutely huge! Really nice guy too…
I know you may be getting tired of sunset pics but each one seems more beautiful then the next.
This was taken after dark and I thought the clouds looked cool lit up by the moonlight..
Church on Sunday was at a very small church that had missionaries just back from Peru. We got to talking to them after service and found out we had some things in common. They have a daughter in the Air Force stationed at Ft. Meade where Michele used to work. Also their next mission field is the Dominican Republic where Michele has friends. We’re trying to make the DR one of our stops later this year if things workout. They were really nice and hopefully we can somehow hook up with them again.
Samuel and Irene Serrano…
As they were leaving, Samuel reached into his car and gifted us with this flute he brought back from Peru.
This is another example of meeting the most extraordinary people on this adventure. I may forget some of the places we visit, but I will never forget the people we have met!
Thank you Samuel and Irene..
