Leaving The Keys

It was now time to head out of The Keys and towards the Everglades.

Here are a few photos from our journey back.

We stopped just before one of the bridges. Here you can see the new bridge on the left and the old one on the right which is now reserved for walkers & fishermen.

Further on we run parallel with this section of old railway bridge. It was rail on the lower level and road above.

Part of this old bridge has been chopped away to allow tall yachts through

We stopped for lunch in the Bahia Honda State Park. Unfortunately this is the only photo we took there and really doesn't do the park justice at all. The park is a rural key with lovely flat sandy beaches. This particular section was actually really busy, we walked perhaps 1/2mi down from this point and it became really quiet, hardly anybody around. Unfortunately because the area we found was so nice and the sea inviting we forgot to take any more photos ! The sea was really shallow and lovely warm. David noted this was the first time he had ever seen Adrian swim in the ocean in our 11 years. It was a really excellent spot to stop for some lunch and enjoy a few rays.

Then it was back in the car and get going for the remainder of the journey. More bridges, more keys
