Boomer fun on a Florida Keys road trip 

After being picked up at the Miami airport, this drive through the Florida Keys officially began in Key Largo.  I fished out of Islamorado, kayaked at Big Pine Key and roamed the quaint streets of Key West. Don’t ask me how many pieces of key lime pie I ate because I’m not telling!
