Monday Night Countdown

This past Saturday me and a buddy went exploring deep down into the Florida Keys; hence, continuing my ‘2009 Economic Stimulus Tour’ (of tourist attractions).

We visited the following places (in chronological order):

1.  Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park (Card Sound Road)
– We got eaten alive by hundreds of biting mosquitoes there. I’m still scratching.

2.  Long Key State Park (MM-67.4)
– Nice nature trail that leads to an observation tower.

3.  Curry Hammock State Park (MM-56.2)
– Popular family beach with a couple of tour buses and lots of kids playing.

4.  Sombrero Beach (MM-50.5)
– Nice public beach owned and operated by the City of Marathon.

5.  Crane Point (MM-50.5)
– Museum / Nature Center / Historic Site – My favourite place that we visited.

6.  Bahia Honda State Park (MM-36.8)
– Nice visitor center; We walked on the old U.S. 1 bridge !

7.  Big Pine Key / No Name Key / National Key Deer Refuge (MM-30)
Endangered Key Deer everywhere – right alongside our car !
