    Thursday morning Chris, Karen, Leon, Ashley, Bruce, Bob and Donna got earlier than us starts. Allen, Willow, Teri and I set out around 8:30 making our way across the Overseas Highway in good time. We took the very scenic Card Sound Road at Key Largo. Along the drive we found what appeared to have been brush fires with some remaining hot spots.
    We were making our way to Biscayne Bay National Park visitor center. On our way we passed by Homestead-Miami Speedway. Biscayne area is beautiful with the Miami skyline far off on the horizon. We learned about some things we saw snorkeling. This is a great place, hopefully we can come back and see more of this area.
    From here we made our way through the Miami corridore of US 1, then taking Okeechobee Road on our way back to Palmetto.
    Thank you everyone for an extra fun getaway. Please share your experiences and photos.
    Keep a lookout for "The Great Southern Adventure" Road Trip for 2022. Big Dave is working on ideas and plans to visit his area next year.

    Wednesday was completely open with no set plans, Happy Cinco De Mayo!! Teri and I started off the day with breakfast at the Banana Cafe, then walked to the beach and the Souternmost Buoy. We met up at Sloppy Joe's for drinks before shopping. Later in the afternoon, we took a dip in the pool before walking to Pepe's for dinner. After dinner we walked to Mallory Square for the Sunset. Teri and I spent a little time after dark walking Duvall, then hung out poolside. Our Key West experience was almost over.

    Tuesday morning came early, Chris and Karen, Leon and Ashley, as well as Allen, Willow, Teri and I had reservations for an early boat ride to Fort Jefferson. The Dry Tortugas National Park is located 70 miles east of Key West near the end of a barrier reef that runs from Miami.The Dry Tortugas offers historical tours, swimming, camping, birding and snorkeling. Allen and Willow are experienced in snorkeling, it was something new to Teri and myself. We really enjoyed the experience, There's some interesting things going on under the surface, thanks Allen for the encouragement to try this. After a sandwich lunch, we self toured the Fort and found the cancelation stamps for our passports. We met Chris, Karen, Leon and Ashley on board for departure back to Key West. Hopefully they will share their experiences. Mean while, Perry was out with the boys scouting photo locations, Bob, Donna. Dave and Bruce were hanging out on Duvall. Hope they share their tuesday adventures. We had dinner at Duffy's, and then walked up Duvall before retiring at the pool for drinks and conversations.....

    ​ Monday morning everyone set out for Key West with different agendas. Hopefully everyone will share their experiences and pictures here. Allen, Willow, Teri and I headed for Everglades National Park. The scenery driving through the park was a combination of Safari, Swamp and Lakes. Its a 40 mile drive one way to the Flamingo Visitor Center on the Gulf. The visitor center is currently under reconstruction and renovation due to hurricane damage, there is a temporary center with information and cancelation stamps. We saw several species of birds, fish and some Manatees in the harbor. On our way out we stopped at 9 Mile Lake, and the Coe visitor center for stamps. There was one Alligator or crocodile floating around in the pond.
    We entered the Overseas Highway near the hotel at Florida City. I'm not sure what I expected of this, and I've heard it can be busy and slow. The drive was sometimes congested and sometimes open space. The rental Camaro did reasonably well in the "passing zones". We stopped at the Island Cafe on Islamorada for some pretty tasty lunch. We continued over the Seven Mile Bridge and several more keys arriving in Key West. We had dinner at Seven Fish restaurant, then had a quick guided tour of Duvall St.
