The hyperbaric chamber at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier is the only one in the Keys. It’s covered with an underwater mural painted by local artist Stacie Krupa.
The beach behind Lorelei. The Turtle is anchored just on the other side of those mangroves.
I saw this huge seaplane on one of my jetski tours. According to the commercial pilot who was on the tour, the custom underwater paint job probably cost almost as much as my boat.
Sparky’s new favorite restaurant is Lazy Days. Most places down here are dog friendly, but here the hostess made a point of saying that he can sit on one of the chairs at the table.
I took the boat at work to Indian Key to take a look around. This is where the old town square on the island was.
One of the few remaining foundations of the buildings that used to be here.
An old cistern on Indian Key.
The grave of Jacob Housman, the original owner of Indian Key, is still on the island.
Walking down one of the streets on Indian Key.
This is the view looking back towards Upper Matecumbe from the east side of Indian Key
Down here, even the stormtroopers have Keys Disease. No wonder they couldn’t find the droid they were looking for.
The dinghy and kayak beach behind Lorelei, right next to the paddleboard rentals. I’m still trying to figure out why they come in here, when the dinghy dock is just 100 feet away?
Laundry day! We had a lot more to do than usual, so Sparky got to try the new bike trailer out. It worked perfectly, and made things much easier than making multiple trips.
Yet another derelict boat sunk in the Keys. Good thing they have that sign up. You don’t want people trespassing on this new wreck.
