Our drive back to the mainland from Key West, part 4

After spending a few hours all the way out at Key West, we began our return drive to the mainland. We had enjoyed a great day seeing world famous Key West.

Here is part of the overseas highway, heading north, looking at the town of Marathon in the distance. Marathon is just about in the middle of the highway from the mainland to Key West.
The old highway was left in a lot of places after the new Highway 1 was built. There is so much fishing in the Keys that gets done from the bridge areas, so these fishing platforms were installed on parts of the old highway bridges to keep fishermen (or women) off the main highway bridge.

As we drive back to our RV park, we can see that it is low tide.
Here is a view from one of the Keys looking out at the Atlantic side. The water was so beautiful.

We had originally planned to skip visiting the Florida Keys and return on another trip in another year. Then we changed our minds and thought if we were all the way down into south Florida....why not finish the deal and see the Keys? Made sense to us and we are so glad we changed our plans.
