Our Neighborhood in the Florida Keys

By Claire

Yesterday at 6:30 pm we had the most amazing sky.  The wind was blowing and the clouds were swirling around.

Ah, my favorite breakfast, once again, courtesy of Costco.  Miami has three.  Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, banana and raspberries along with some muesli from Amish country back in Wisconsin.

Right outside our window.

We went for a walk this morning and saw some interesting things.  Anybody know what these are?

They are following this Eget as if she's their mother.  But, their beaks are curved and their legs are a different color.

We came to this little park right on the water with lots of nice benches and Tiki style shade structures.

She's harvesting coconuts.

We found out we are living in a very upscale neighborhood.

Four-porch, multi-million dollar style

Long, private driveway with centered fountain style

Help!  The wind!  I can't hang on! 

Canal with boat docks.  We're standing on one.

Yeah, we're riding out this storm.

Beautiful, soft white sand.

Sponges grow in the ocean. That just 'gets' me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn't happen. ~ Stephen Wright
