We were awakened at about 4:00 AM with a loud clap of thunder followed by a torrential downpour. But by 8:00 AM when we actually got up, the sun was out. But there were big rain clouds around and it was a bit windy.
As we approached Big Pine Key we could see a big blue cloud ahead, and as we passed Bahia Honda up to Seven Mile Bridge the bottom fell out. Its a strange feeling being on such a long bridge and only able to see a few feet around you due to the rain.
Once in Marathon we went out to Sombrero Beach. This is a nice little city park, but on a rainy Monday during school season, the place was deserted except for a couple of guys fishing on the nearby pier.
