Bahia Honda

We hated to leave our campsite on the water at Long Key. That blow was softened by discovering our new campsite was also on the water.

See the broken bridge in the background?

This photo was shot from up there. It's what passes for a hill in Florida.


This is an interesting park. Four years ago we stayed in the marina with our sailboat and had some adventures. The marina is well protected, but can't accommodate deep draft boats. It suited us just fine. A sudden storm came up in the night. Boats right outside the marina dragged anchor and one was lost. No one was seriously injured, but it was a near thing.

I'm not sure if we'll bother with heading down all the way to Key West. It's pleasant here. We'll try and make it down to Key West in the sailboat in a month or so.

    1. Hurricanes destroyed a lot of the railroad. Some of the old bridge was cut to allow sailboats through.

    1. Few things in the Keys are cheap, but they sure have their pretty parts.

    1. The bridge is 6 feet, 8 inches. Nice sites on the other side. Stayed there years ago in a tent. That's where the fun people go to play.
