Barnacle Barney’s Hidden Treasure

WOW, is this a bar with a view or what! It’s amazing at what beauty can be found in one Florida Keys bar location.

I’m no professional photographer by trade but have improved my photo shooting immensely during my over 10,000 photos I’ve documented for the Florida Keys & Key West.
