The Keys at Last

Past enormous Miami (280th Street SW Exit anyone?) on the Florida Turnpike, total cost $6 with less traffic and trucks than I95, to the Keys.  The highway stops at the tip of the mainland in Florida City and you fall onto Highway 1 from thereon, a two-laner.  Basically the same highway from the Canadian border to the tip of Florida.

Total time from Miami to Marathon; 3 hours.  Stopped in at Reggie's brother Rejean's condo for a lovely home-cooked meal, then over to the trailer to unload.  Met the neighbours and settled in, 100 feet from the Caribbean.

    Looks very nice, indeed! Beautiful, relaxing scenery.

    I am google-earthing the whole island right now... :-)!
