Florida Day Seven: Exploring And Enjoying Beautiful Key Largo
My last day in beautiful Key Largo began with a drive to the Kawama Yacht Club resort to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic ocean. Every sunrise over an ocean is a different and awe-inspiring experience.
I still remember my first sunrise over the ocean, this same ocean, a long time ago when I was in Florida while in college. Still so beautiful they are, and I reflect how fortunate I have seen it rise above all the oceans of this planet.
While enjoying the sunrise I also observed the moon, now in its last quarter. I have been watching the phases of the moon, and contemplating how it signifies the passage of time, since I was a child. Here is a link to some more photographs the sunrise. Florida Day Seven: sunrise March 16 2020.
After watching the sunrise I drove to the docks at the Key Largo Fisheries and decided to explore this area of the island. I enjoy roaming the neighborhoods of the towns and cities I visit on my travels. Like the forests and woodlands I love to explore, there is always something to see in every town if you keep your eyes peeled.
The docks of the small marina where already buzzing with activity in this early morning hour. Some fishermen where getting their boats ready to head out to sea while others appeared to have just came in from the sea and where cleaning their catch.
I understand a local band plays on this stage on Thursday nights and I hope to be back and enjoy some music on a warm Florida evening.
I walked back on another street and found the same arrangement, larger homes near the ocean and more modest homes further down the street. However, many of the older homes were being purchased and replaced with much more expensive structures. This, I believe occurs in cities and towns all over the world. I have seen it from Dallas to Auckland.
After hiking my usual five miles through the neighborhoods I returned to my jeep, parked next to an old bridge with its own colorful history. It was time for breakfast and I drove to Harriette’s to enjoy another delicious homemade breakfast. Here is some more photographs from my hike through the streets of Key Largo.
