Florida Keys

Aloha Everyone,

The Florida Keys are a series of small islands with low elevation made of coral and sand. The archipelago begins at approximately 15 miles south of Miami. It extends all the way to Key West, dividing Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.

This is our second trip to the Keys with Honu. Our target was to see if we could find accommodation at the 2nd fully equipped state park called Bahia-Honda. This time we were not so lucky. The park was full.

We stopped to purchase a couple of days provision at Winn-Dixie, a chain of supermarkets we have been seeing in this part of the country.

In the parking lot, Mary Ann from Sugarloaf Key approached J.J. asking about Honu. She and her husband own an older model and they were curious about Honu's performance and asked to take a look of the interior.  

Don and MaryAnn work with professional non-profit in organizing running events. If you are ever in this part of Florida, you can check for upcoming races by going to:
Honu is comfortably settled under a Gumbo Limbo tree in Knight's Key & Marina RV Resort in Marathon, FL.

Florida's high tourist season ended on March 31. Many snow birds from Canada and the Northeastern states come to avoid winter weather. To accommodate these seasonal residents, some RV parks like this one offer programs of 6/6. Stay 6 months at the RV Park then leave your vehicle parked in the open-field storage area for 6 months.

Some of these people really transform their RV by decorating to make them more lived-in.

Tonight we walked about one long city block to a very popular restaurant called Sunset Grill  & Raw Bar. I am finishing my blog as our wait for table is 45-60 minutes.

Aloha -- Cathi
