Sometimes they seem to be casting are d for names, any name to give to the anonymous streets. On Cudjoe Key the planners were casting around for names and they managed to come up with a bunch of ridiculous pirate names, Bucket o' Blood, Pieces of Eight, Spanish Main and so forth. Ship's Way is the main drag at the south end of Big Pine off Highway One and for a side street they came up with this unimaginative gem.
The homes in these subdivisions are standard stilt homes for the most part.
But as usual tropical foliage and a few dramatic clouds make the most mundane side streets look good.
Most of these streets with large homes are built on canals that were dug out of the rock at a time when tearing up the environment was okay. Not al the homes are on stilts.
Cute mailboxes are in evidence and this one I liked because it is a copy of the house itself.
Bigger and more liveable.
Usually when I walk these streets I carry a magazine or the newspaper and I catch up on latest motorcycle trends or localness as Cheyenne checks out the smells.
Summer time is good too because there are far fewer cars and people and wandering the street is a lovely lonely prospect. Just what a misanthrope needs before going to work.
