Today we left Key West and drove north on Overseas Highway through Big Pine Keys, Marathon, Islamorada and Key Largo to Homestead. We only took a couple of pics - trying to capture the blue and green colors of the water, but the camera just doesn't do it justice. Even Sammy tried to point out the color and clarity.
About half way through the Royal Palm it began pouring down rain, causing us to scurry to find a shelter. Rain only lasted 10 minutes so we moved on to find some 'gators. We found several and spent a lot time just watching them lie around. One did open his mouth to show us his tonsils - not sure if he was trying to scare us or it was big yawn.
We arrived at our hotel in Miami (Kendall) around 5:00 and had a great dinner at the Bahama Breeze. Tomorrow we plan on driving Hwy 41 across the Everglades and visit Uncle Phillip in Coral Gables.
