Pink Shrimp on the Barby

Saddle Bunch Keys, Florida

We had another lazy day in the Keys.  We spend most of the day at the RV park swimming and kayaking. 

The wildlife here is amazing.  I mentioned earlier the number of birds we see daily.  Lower Sugarloaf Key also has a lot of fish.  Earlier today we heard a noise that sounded like a boat blasting through the water.  It turned out to be a shoal of mullet escaping from some other predatory fish.  About 4 or 5 waves of the mullet looking like ocean waves breaking on a shoreline continuing for 30 seconds or so until they were in deeper water.  Of course I didn't have the camera so no shot of that.

Anything watersports oriented is available and done here in the Keys.  Seems that every house has a boat or two in the yard or in the carport.  Paddle boarding is popular here as well.  We saw this guy coming across the sound with his dog on the board with him.

 I have not tried paddle boarding but my sense of balance is not all that great.  I think I would have a hard time standing upright and paddling by myself, much less with a dog on board!

Mid afternoon we drove up to Ramrod Key to a fresh seafood market and bought a pound of Key West Pink Shrimp.  We grilled those for our dinner.  We had a bag of broccoli slaw (just add mayo) and some whole wheat tortillas.  This combination made some very good fresh shrimp tacos.

We are headed back to that same seafood store tomorrow go pick up a couple of Florida Keys fresh Lobster for the grill.
