These are not recent pictures of the waters alongside the Keys. I have been working what seems endlessly lately, eight or nine nights in a row then one night off and then back at it, as we hope our two trainees get up to speed and ease the overtime burden. I have been looking at pictures as a way to take a small mental trip. These random seascapes remind me of good times past, more free time, because the past always looks easier than the present!
There was a discussion in the paper recently about the cost to make the old Flagler railroad bridges safe for pedestrians. I miss walking this one across half of Niles Channel, alongside the modern 40 foot road bridge opened in 1982. Nowadays it's fenced off and closed.
Cheyenne loves walking bridges and checking the really nasty crap anglers leave behind bless their hearts.
The old bridge on the left, the new bridge with the water pipe on the right. Water was first piped to Key West from the mainland in 1942 to supply the expanded needs of the wartime military.
Some days it really does look like this. And now the days start to get longer. About time.
