I moved to Key Largo in 1983 when the Friendship Inn had a drive up window for mixed drinks and the Caribbean Club didn't even have a front door cuz they never closed. After work, I could get in my Mako 22 and be in a 100' of water in 30 minutes.The keys arent what they used to be, even 10 years ago.
The whole world was different then.
I thought I would never leave.
Then Hurricane Andrew, Marine Sanctuary, Impact fees....etc and I left in 2000.
I'll take the Nature coast and the First coast.
But I do miss that water, just not enough.
