Have I mentioned before how many boats there are down here? I suppose that since a major draw of the Florida Keys is fishing (both commercial and sport) and snorkeling/scuba diving and, well, boating in general, I shouldn’t be surprised. After all, it does consist of over 1700 islands and it does have incredibly beautiful weather that happens most every day in the winter months.
We checked out some boat neighborhoods at a local Marina.
And just like neighborhoods all over the country, there are different “flavors” of neighborhoods –
A little on the upscale side –
And a little on the more down to earth side-
Why, they even brought the four-legged family along!
There are lots of sailboats –
(I love my zoom!)
and there are even some pink Cadillacs (moored next to pirate ships)!
But boats aren’t the only signs of the islands
There are interesting mailboxes
and hardware stores like nowhere else!
Let’s face it, when you’re in the Keys, you just never know what you might run into next!
Take a deep breath – and think instead on this…..
Ahhhhhhhh………now that’s a sign of the island that we can all relate to!
