Key West - Part One

Our latest trip was to Key West.  We decided to knock something off my bucket list and to take the Overseas Highway from the mainland to Key West.

It was a beautiful trip, but I have to say that I was surprised at what Route 1A looks like - it looks just like the Boston Post Road!  If you need a Home Depot - there is is!  A Lowe's, McDonalds, CVS, whatever you want - there it is!  The highway connects all the islands and sometimes you can't even tell you are leaving one island and going onto another.  There are trees and you can't see the water - you just see the sign telling you what island you are now on.......

The seven mile bridge is just spectacular though.  It is between Marathon Key and Little Duck Key and the views are spectacular.  The water colors range from deep green to beautiful blue!

Unfortunately, the pictures don't do the bridge any justice.

Next up is Smathers Beach......
