At Bayside on Tuesday. It was pretty windy, with a little spray in the air--and on the camera lens apparently.
A nice tourist took a photo for us. The sun was beginning to break through, and although there were a few showers, they lasted only minutes and didn't affect our fun in the least.
I don't know who this man was, but he was so happy to have his photo taken with our flag.
I can't remember who owned which of the houses we saw on the bay, but I do remember this one: the angular modern white one on the left of the photo below is George Clooney's. I like his movies, but can't say I like his house.
I had a fine time exploring Bayside with Cindhy. I am not much of a shopping mall person, but it was fun to look in shop windows, and people-watch. We had a fantastic lunch sitting beside the bay, a perfect finish to our day.
The next morning found us on our way to Key West. I still can't get over the color of the water! It was windy again--note to self, take hair ties with me next time. I think we were on Key Largo here, but I am not sure, as the road goes from one island to another so quickly it's hard to know where you are. I thought a lot about the movie and about Humphrey Bogart while we were passing through. I need to watch that film again now that I've been there.
Tom with Cindhy:
Greens, blues, aqua...seaside colors really are so restful.
A small key (island) all by its lonesome. There are about 80 islands in the Florida Keys.
This is a railroad bridge that borders the seven-mile bridge along the route to Key West. The railroad bridge was completed in 1913 by Henry Flagler who wanted a way to facilitate development of Florida and the Keys.
The old bridge that was replaced by the new seven mile bridge is still standing in places and is used as a walking/biking trail.
