My first stop was Islamorada where I had once worked at the Yacht Club waiting tables.
Lower Matecumbe Key was our home for 3 months when my family lived aboard the sailboat, Halcyon in the '70's. Would the marina still be there? I had to look.I parked near where I thought the marina had been and I walked along the road--nothing looked familiar.
I spotted an abandoned train trestle on my port side--and that is a tree growing out of it! There is at least a mile in either direction to any land! Determination abounds!
