Jan 5-10 2014 (Miss Zanzibar at Longwood, FL-Betty/Denny’s pad while John and Trish are in Marathon, FL)
Key Largo (MM 107-98)
John Pennekamp Coral Reef SP (MM 102) Didn’t get to it this trip, enjoyed snorkeling (paid for boat to reef) on another visit. Great place for trips to reef for snorkeling. We also enjoyed watching the fish off the dock.
African Queen boat (from Spencer Tracy/Kathrine Hepburn movie) (MM 100)– didn’t see.
Tavernier Key (MM 92 or so) Probably named for the drinking establishments so popular with the “wreckers” of the 19th century.
Islamorada Key (MM 91-85) (I lah mor AH duh) (purple isles)
Camping: Fiesta Key RV (MM 70) (Available through Thousand Trails/ELS) – very nice, although expensive unless you have a Ready Camp Go card. All sorts of pelicans love it here, at their marina. A giant egret likes it here too. Nice sites, many with water views. Lots of cabins on the water too.
