We have Keys Fever!

We saw a video about the building of the Flagler Railroad to Key West and someone in the movie said that people who come to the Keys get Key Fever. So many people come, fall in love with the area and never leave. We do not have a choice in this because we are Canadians and because we have children and grand children in Ontario.

I am going to upload photos and let them tell the story.

I apologize to all our friend "up north".




Moon over Miami!


Day trip to Big Pine Key


Alligator at the Blue Hole.
Up close.


Nature walk. No that is not snow, it is coral rock.


Did not see any of these n the nature walk.


We did see these.


Slash pine


Pine island key deer. So tiny!
Do not feed the deer!


At the end of No Name Key


We found the No Name Pub where we had fish and chips for lunch.


We were told there was over $150,000 in $1 dollar bills stapled to the roof.


Even more
Here is the story.


Manatee in our marina






That roundish black thing in the water is a sting ray. Taken from our bridge.


Another sunset pic


On the Bahia Honda Bridge.


Boats heading out to sea. Maybe for fishing?


Somewhere in the centre of this pic is a shark. Spotted from the Bahia Honda bridge


I think that is another sting ray


Bahia Honda State Park.
Michael was swimming down there before he knew there were sting rays and sharks in the water.
Tropical Paradise!
The story about the Bahia Honda bridge


Pretty pick seaweed.
Michael wades bravely out.
Back home to the pool.


Michael in the shade. We had too much sun today.


A green iguana. This one was about 2 feet long. There is another one at the pool which is about 4 feet long!
Sombrero Beach, Marathon Key


Sombrero Beach and it is dog friendly!
Sombrero Beach


Sudden rain storm. We are now an ark!


Huge puddle.


After the storm, the rainbow. People were stopping on the highway to take photos. It was one of the most spectacular rainbows I have ever seen!



  1. beautiful pics makes me want to head to the keys!

  2. The good thing is you can always go back again next year. It really is a gorgeous place.

  3. I can see why...that rainbow is beautiful. Have never seen one so big. I did see two little ones at one time though! How neat to have a doggie beach. You guys look great!


  4. We just spent a week at Marathon. Loved, loved The Keys. I think most people who go there get hooked.

  5. We too enjoyed the Keys last fall to, but had a whole week of very windy, overcast weather. Still love the area every time we go back there.
    Enjoy it while you can.
