The day finally came when it was time to leave Key West. It was a wonderful winter weather wise, but the best memories are of meeting old friends and making new ones.
In October 2016 we were driving into KW, on a bright sunny day at least until we were a couple of miles from the city limits. Over Key West a gray cloud appeared and off into a distance one could see a rain shower. This produced a double rainbow welcoming us to paradise. Six months or so later, on our departure, Key West was sad to see us leave. It hadn’t rained but a couple of times all winter, but this morning was a soaker. Fifthty miles up the road the rain vanished and the sunshine gleamed onto the aqua waters of the Gulf and the Atlantic.
Our plan first was a 215 mile journey to the southern tip of Lake Okeechobee at South Bay RV campground. This is a county park and one of the best we ever stayed at. Full hookups, clean restrooms, very good WiFi and a 150 mile bike trail around the lake!
That is what we saw and did!
