Trip to the Middle Keys
The Middle Keys, how bad are they? I head everything from they are completely up and running to it looks just like the hurricane hit three days ago. My lovely wife and I decided to see for ourselves. We went down to Marathon for dinner at Burdines. Rumor has it their fries are amazing.
On the way down we saw plenty of debris on the side of the road.
We also saw places that had been totally cleaned up.
Some places like Burdines were completely up and running. They only thing really missing was their sign. A temporary painted sheet of plywood assured drivers that they were indeed open. By the way, the rumors are true: the fries truly are amazing.
It looks like a lot of housing and a fair number of businesses are gone. Long Key State Campground is a mess. Basically, the only thing left was the bath houses. There are huge piles sand, all along the waterfront, but it will be some time before those are turned into campsites.
The trip to the Middle Keys stirred up a lot of memories. We had some good times in that area. While I was saddened to see how hard they were hit, it was encouraging to see a lot of reconstruction.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
