We decided, rather last minute, to take a long kayak ride, twice as long as we have ever done before and it was really great. Not quite sure how we got so lucky but we awoke to temps in the upper 60's which for the first week ok May is unheard of. It put the kabosh on any snorkelling though cos it was just too chilly for that. As much as I detest hot weather I do love warm water.
We got up and on the road quite early yesterday and were down in the keys early so by the time we had finished kayaking the day was still young so I decided to head further south and we went down to Islamorada which seemed like a great idea at the time but coming home was pretty bad with the traffic. live and learn! We had a fabulous day and we are lucky to have the keys on our doorstep ( but we would rather have mountains) Once we got to Islamorada we went to Robbies at mile marker 77.5 to feed the tarpon. It's just a silly fun thing you can do there. For $1 you buy a bucket of fish and fed these ginormous tarpon but and this is a big BUT you have to get the little fishies past the pelicans and that takes some skill or trickery.

|Mr. Pelican you look so sweet and innocent|
|but look ..... there are so many of you|
|these fish will BITE. But it's so much fun to feed them|
|if you can get past the cute pelicans|
|It was so loud with all the poeple and the birds.|
|This made me smile. Not cos it is cocky but because it is true. women just do so much.|
