Earlier this week I finally got a jetski tour at work…a jetski tour. It was still pretty windy on the oceanside, so we spent the entire time cruising around the bay. The last place we stopped on the tour was a special, little, not so secret spot, that I only I seem to go to.
Swimming around in this small clearing in the mangroves we saw more barracuda than I’ve ever seen back there. This photo doesn’t even do it justice. There must have been hundreds of them swimming around back there.
I made my monthly grocery run up to Winn Dixie the following day, and made this discovery. They now carry Keez Beez honey. Keez Beez is a natural, raw honey, made right here in the Florida Keys…unlike most of the other fake processed stuff, labeled as honey.
Sparky made a new friend as usual. He’s such a little lap dog!
I saw this boat tied up at one of the docks, which looks like an accident waiting to happen. A Danforth anchor is a proven design that’s been around for years. Why go with a cheap pseudo imitation, especially on a small anchor like this, where a Danforth that size wouldn’t even cost that much?
Then I looked a little closer, and realized neither of the shackles on the anchor rode are seized. The bolt on the shackle connecting the anchor to the chain or the one connecting the chain to the line, could come loose at any time.
Here in the Keys, we don’t just have derelict sailboats and powerboats. We even have derelict kayaks! These 2 sit on kayaks have been abandoned in the mangroves for months. Amazingly, except for some growth on the bottom, they’re both in like new condition.
Here’s another one, that I’m guessing was left in the same spot, much longer. Sadly, even this one looks like it was in great condition, when it was first left there. It probably sank, only because it’s a sit in kayak, so it filled with water, from rain.
