A Drive Down The Keys

We took a drive on Harry Truman’s US 1, The Overseas Highway that runs the length of the Florida Keys from our campsite mid-south on the chain at Marathon Key, and went 60 miles further south to Key West. At Key West we visited the “Little White House” that Harry used numerous times during his time as president as his retreat from DC. Key West is a unique part of the US but has become too touristy for our tastes. We did enjoy our drive through the Keys and found many with great names. Take Tur which is where many folks spend their Thanksgiving. We went by the twin Oh and Doh, which are very agreeable Keys. There is Off, where the singing is not so great. We went by Mon, with its jungle like feel. There is Don with its sign saying “Do not be what you see”.  Then there is Mur, with a sense of intrigue about it. Oh yes, we went by Kanka, with the road sign that says Illinois, 1400 miles. There are others, but I do not want to exceed my groan quotient for this blog entry.
