Quick Trip to Big Pine and Marathon

Saddle Bunch Keys, Florida

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.

So mid morning we decided to ride up to Marathon.

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.

Time for lunch!  (Srini if you read this, please keep in mind that one of the key things I learned from you is that you cannot plan for lunch too early!)  There is a very cool place on the bay side of Marathon called Keys Fisheries.  It is a retail seafood market with a kitchen and a bunch of picnic tables around the dock area.  The grouper sandwich was good!
