You are driving south in Miami on the Turnpike, it is noisy, busy, stressful and just not fun. It is one of the busiest and nerve-wracking highways in the United States. The highway ends and the road goes down to two lanes and the speed drops drastically (and mind the speed limit they are serious about their Blue Tick Deer). And then you see the turquoise blue water and your whole body, mind and soul goes aaaawwwww!
The Real Florida Keys
You are now in the upper Keys and you immediately are in a “Keys” state of mind, Roll down the window and smell the salt air.
There is so much more to the Key’s than what most people think of, Key West. Key West, with its bars, tee-shirt shops and drunken crowds. The Key’s with their awesome Caribbean blue water, are so completely different, they calm the mind and soul. There are three areas of the Key’s, the upper, middle, lower and then Key West.
Even though the speed drops to 35 mph, you don’t mind, you want to savor every view , the smells and the view of the water. It is like being in the Caribbean without flying. With every water activity available; flats and deep-sea fishing, para-sailing, kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, some of the best dolphin encounter programs and on and on. Or you can do nothing and just enjoy the calm, the sun and the salt air.
That is me , experiencing my first dolphin encounter, and it was totally AWESOME!
If you have not been, go. It will touch your soul and the feeling will remain with you always.
