Most of these houses are still buttoned up for summer.
Always there is something for sale and these days prices are plummeting for homes far from Key West's jobs and also on "dry" lots- that is homes without canal access.
These older homes set on the ground, albeit on slight mounds, are more subject to flooding.
That was an issue brought home by the extensive floods created by Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
Cheyenne enjoyed her sniff, as always.
Heavy duty shutters above, and old fashioned shutters below. Much lovelier.
Fishing for all:
This is a neighborhood that will come alive as snow drifts Up North.
I also like the views across the wide open spaces of impenetrable mangroves.
A little human intervention creates a paradise of plants.
Which must have a name.
Very severe I'm sure, if ungrammatical.
A little more inviting is the hammock, and strangely enough despite the absence of prohibitions posted, there was no one trespassing on it.
Cheyenne took up her station in the shade and enjoyed the sounds of Summer in Fall.
Wind ruffled leaves, cicadas crackling, and me riffling the pages of my magazine.
