Christ of the Abyss in Key Largo. One of the World's Most Dived Sites. Key Largo.... Gateway to the Keys Island Chain.  As you crest Jewfish Creek Bridge heading South on the Overseas Highway, roll down your windows and breath in that glorious island air!  65 feet above the water you can survey Key Largo, in all its splendor.  To the South, within view, are the neighborhoods of Sexton Cove and Stillwright Point, and even The Caribbean Club, where the famous Bogart Movie "Key Largo" was fillmed, fronting picturesque Blackwater Sound.  Key Largo is the longest of the Keys, at 27 miles long with tony, Ocean Reef Club to the North and Tavernier to the South, and is often incorrectly identified as the northernmost key, though that distinction goes to tiny Soldier Key in Biscayne Bay. Key La...

One of my proudest achievements has been running the 7-Mile Bridge Run, four times.   I actually ran in the very first one!  Though my times were certainly nothing to brag about, the experience certainly has been!!   I have as well, enjoyed the rare opportunity to participate in the race going both directions!  East to West and West to East.  It truly is amazing running with the Gulf to one side you and Atlantic on the other.   As you crest the hump of the bridge, high above the water, you can see the beautiful hues of color that change between the flats and channels.  Magnificent Beauty!  Though I did not run the race this year, I was certainly there in spirit!!!Below are excerpts from an article that I saw in Keysnet.com:"Hialeah lifeguard Daniel Martin, 27, won Saturday's 30th annual...

I would like to introduce Taste of the Keys, some down right tasty chocolates, truffles and baked goods. I tried them at Woofstock and was sold. They don't often display at such events because chocolate has a tendency to be a bit fragile. They combated that by placing all their chocolate on ice packs to keep it in peak condition.   The products are also available at Shell World, Largo Cargo, John's Key Lime Products, Latitude 55, Islamorada Fish Company and more. For additional information and product offerings, call Bob Thomas at 305-852-1791 or 305-794-6769. They are working on their website, www.KeyLargoChocolates.com Tell them I sent you and they should reward me with chocolate! (Those Key Lime Truffles are to die for!)

There is an Art Festival in the Waldorf Plaza, Mile Marker 100 in  Key Largo in the Fabulous Florida Keys March 19th and 20th.   The times are 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. I suggest going on Sunday so you can spend Saturday at Woodstock in Islamorada, Mile Marker 87.   The event is sponsored by the Florida Keys Art Guild and the Florida Keys and Key West Chamber of Commerce.
