I love a good road trip. It has always been my dream to drive on the overseas highway, over a hundred miles surrounded by emerald water and cool wind in my hair.
After the hustle bustle of Miami, it was therapeutic to visit the Florida Keys. It’s a 4 hour drive from Miami to the city of Key West, which is the Southernmost point of the US continent. However, it took us much longer because we couldn’t resist stopping at some of the beaches along the highway. The Veteran’s Beach, for example was completely deserted when we visited and I could have spent hours there.
Of course we had to get a picture of the ‘Southernmost Point’ sign in Key West.
I would love to go back and spend an entire summer in the Keys, swimming in the ocean, eating the delicious local food and feel all the worries melt away.
