This was about 70 miles south of the Florida Keys, on a ferry boat that took us and about 75 or more people out to Fort Jefferson to explore…….a little pricey but well worth it……

For the afternoon, we lounged on the beach and had lunch from the boat side lunch counter……..there are no cafe’s or anything except a gift shop out there……….One lady lives out on this island and takes care of the shop all week……nice……except if there is a storm or hurricane, then it can flood and if you are not off the island……….well, it would be bad…….when its nice weather though and most of the time it is, you can camp over night here and go home the next day with the boat that brings more tourists out…..they leave at 2pm……2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get back but a lovely boat and excellent food (breakfast and lunch)………
