Little Torch Key

The Conch Republic flag flying bravely over a garden on Little Torch Key.

It's a funny little subdivision off US Highway One at Mile Marker 28.

Cheyenne did her Eeyore act sticking her nose in the bushes.

Overhead the sun was shining the trees were green and the clouds were white puffy patches against a deep blue sky.

This is honeysuckle and it imparts a lovely smell even as it dies off. I followed the bee or a while and enjoyed his industry.

These roads are little graveled roads wind through tall hedgerows of local trees, black mangroves, buttonwoods and dogwoods.

It's a great place to go for a shady stroll on a windy day.

There are lots of houses tucked away in these wooded secluded glens.

I like these Hansel and Gretel homes in the woods, far from salt water...

The mangroves are the usual barrier between the tidal waters and the homes.

The views are lovely, as usual, in this case south toward the highway.

The vistas are endless, it's like a green leafy desert.

But every Paradise has it's owner!

I have really been enjoying these shady lanes this windy Spring.

Cheyenne has been enjoying them too.

She's a happy pet lying down in the shade.
Maybe you should do the same beside her?

Actually I do, frequently with a motorcycle magazine. Passing drivers tend to stare.

Let 'em stare. It's all the rage in Germany here to just find some random spot to crap out. Go for it. It looks like you already are enjoying the weather, You've got a bit of envy, but we're catching up.
