The Backyard

8 Feb

Today we sailed down the Atlantic, inside the Florida Reef and cut across to the Gulf of Mexico at Snake Creek towards Tavernier. We had to navigate a bascule bridge for Hwy 1, and met the cheeriest bridge tender in our hundreds of bridge lifts. She was so bubbly and sweet, and welcomed us to “the  backyard.” Guess the gulf side is the backyard of the Keys. Shallow, but beautiful and crystal clear.
