Walk the Overseas Heritage Trail on Long Key

Getting to each of the Florida Keys you have to travel across 42 bridges on a two lane highway. The longest bridge is seven miles long.

There is a 2.2 mile pedestrian path made from reconstructed railroad track. It is not far from where we were staying in Marathon Key.

As you drive from one Key to the next you can see unkept areas of this railroad. It is wild what a little maintenance can do. Also, take note to the electrical towers built in to the ocean floor.

That pelican let me get very close to him on our walk before he flew away. I didn’t want him to be afraid of me, and I was terrified to turn my back on him, I still managed to get a photo from afar.
