Once or twice a year most of the locals in Key West day trip the 160 miles to Miami to stock up on whatever they can’t get here. Hubby and I did that yesterday. The lease was up on my car and it was time to trade it in on another. We do have two car dealerships on the island but neither offer my car. So, off we went to Miami and ended up with a new car, some new clothes and even a new living room ceiling fan!
By 3pm we were done with the mainland and headed home. As soon as we crossed over the 18 mile stretch which connects the mainland to the Keys everything changed. Traffic disappeared, speed limits lowered, the air felt clearer and the water bluer. It’s good to be back in the Keys.
