I’m back. Did you miss me?
Wednesday we moved again, this time to site 33 in Long Key State Park. It’s only a short way down the road from the other sites where we stayed, but a different perspective. The beach here is a little rockier and we are on the other side of the point with the tree in the water. The gulls and pelicans like to sit on the rocks when they are showing above the water at low tide.
Thursday is wing night at the Hurricane, and this time we had our new friends along to experience the wingness. Don and Ruth Anne from Virginia and Jack and Mary Lou from New York state had their first Hurricane wings. Everyone enjoyed the wings and the ambience and we all plan to meet there again for future wing nights.
Friday we left Long Key and moved up to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. The campground is fairly small, just 47 camp sites and not on the water (except for the mangrove swamps.) We rode our bicycles around the park, seeing both beaches, the marina and the visitor

center with its small, but nice aquarium. We went to Upper Crust Pizza for supper and had their seafood pizza, which has a white alfredo sauce and is topped with lobster, crab and scallops. It was quite good and their crust is excellent, too.
Saturday we goofed around, did some shopping and then went to dinner at Shipwreck Bar and Grill, next to Capt. Slates dive center. We ate some excellent Mahi Mahi before heading back to the campground. There is a seafood festival this weekend in Key Largo and the traffic was pretty heavy on US 1 for a while. Back in camp we did some laundry and relaxed some more (we are on vacation, after all.)
Today we did a little more shopping and drove through the park to take some pictures for this blog. Now it is relaxing time. We are not fond of Key Largo, it is too close to Miami and thus noisy (loud) folks from there come down for the weekend with their noisy (loud) young’uns. Tomorrow back to Long Key until the 10th
