May 30, Key West, FL – Today I kicked back and took it easy. I rode down to Key West and scouted out the locations I’ll need for tomorrow’s official start.
The ride down was easy with great vistas. You may have noticed there aren’t any pictures of the islands. There are two Keys – The Keys of the natural features and …
the Keys of the man-made support structure for tourism.
The islands and the ocean form a very wide and short scene. A photo would look like a dark green brush stoke on a blue background. You need eyes and a brain to process the scenes into a vision with the wonder of it all.
The infrastructure is simpler to photograph, but unfortunately you couldn’t take enough pictures to capture all that has been built. Store, resort, store, store, resort, store… ad infinitum.
I took my pictures, drove around a bit and toured a little. I’m all set for the morning. The post office opens at 8:30 and I’ll be there. Then it’s back up the coast.
