Beach Picnic With A View To Die For!

Though every beach has an ocean view, the type of view is up to you in where you chose to get comfy at. Few times are you able to enjoy such splendor, serenity, peacefulness and seclusion as we did on this given day! Here at the busiest beach in Key West we were alone in our view of the Atlantic Ocean. After our customary bike ride around town, we chose here for a picnic (notice our bike basket doubling as a picnic basket)… and what a GREAT choice it proved to be. Though we weren’t the only ones on the beach, we were the only ones in the view of our picnic table towards the ocean. Life...

Voted BEST EVER Southernmost Sign In The Florida Keys!

Hands down the BEST ‘Southernmost Sign’ EVER in the entire Florida Keys! OK, I must admit that I was the ONLY judge voting for the ‘Southernmost Sign’ crown and here it is! This colorful very large KOA Campground sign is indeed the best of the best ones out there… and I’ve seen dozens. I’ve reported in the past that there’s a southernmost everything out there: Southernmost Home, Southernmost Motel, Southernmost Furniture, Southernmost Tattoo, and even a Southernmost Cigar Company all vying for the prestigious title in their respective...

Key’s Bahia Honda Bridge Mural

Say ‘Hello’ to one the Florida Key’s coolest murals! Seen here is a beautiful great addition to the growing tradition of painted murals throughout the entire Keys. This is indeed a bright spot along your journey and caught my attention instantly upon passing this eye-popping two-walled painted masterpiece. Its focal point is the former majestic now crumbling Bahia Honda bridge along with an iguana, sunset, bicycle rider, mangrove root tree & palm tree. You can find the one of the Key’s brightest colorful murals at Mile Marker 48.0 bayside beside the...

Monroe County’s SMALLEST Bird Sanctuary

This is without a doubt Monroe County’s SMALLEST Bird Sanctuary! Featured below is a full-width photo of the sanctuary consisting of a circle of trees with two inner pier posts roped together. Forgetting to bring my trusty bright yellow Stanley tape measure, I’d venture to say that it’s less than 100 feet in width or length… if not smaller. Though I didn’t actually see any birds, I did see enormous amounts of bird & pelican poop… some of which I kept as souvenirs upon my sneakers!  On the other hand, for you ant farm enthusiasts… I’ve found...

Marathon Space Domes!

Space Domes In the city of Marathon heading south on US-1 at Mile Marker 52.7 on the left side of the road you’ll find a strange set of aqua colored dome homes & buildings. These odd shaped abodes are now a Pool Supply Company and formerly a Real Estate Office in prior years. I actually stopped in and spoke with the current occupant quizzing him on its unique style and history. In asking if I could walk around the property and take some photos he replied “If you want to!” so I did and enjoyed it. If there’s one thing about me you’ll soon find out it’s that “I’m NOT SHY at all!”...
