Following pics w/o captions taken on a bike ride on one of the keys (Casey) just off Osprey, on the Gulf Coast. Some beautiful private residences, with intriguing landscaping.
Couple of guys driving a BMW convert. stopped and asked me if I wanted to buy one of the places. Said it was really a buyers market. I could buy the place I was in front of for $300,000 !! Then they clarified - that is $300,000 per foot of frontage !!

Who says my "rig" is Mickey Mouse??
This guy pulled in with a 5th wheel a few days ago, at Oscar Scherer SP, on the Gulf between Venice and Sarasota. Biggest tow vehicle we have seen yet....
Oscar Scherer made his fortune inventing and marketing leather dyes for shoes. His family donated land for the park. Beautiful park
Curry Hammock SP, the Keys, on the Atlantic.
Thunderstorm started at 1:30 a.m. at this site, went non-stop for 2 hours, and dumped 6" of rain with 90 kmh wind gusts.
Percy and Marg kept a low profile under their sleeping bag, but Phoebe was terrified and I spent a couple of hours pacing in the trailer, with her in my arms. She was shaking most of the time, just like me !!!
