As per Part 1, our kayak-camping trip spanned 10 days in early February. Now, more of the Top 10 Things We Learned about the southernmost point of the U.S. (not counting that last fact).
#3: “The Sunshine State” (Florida) isn’t always in a sunny state.You may think you’re escaping to a warm tropical paradise. Then, this (click for video):
Well, at least our clothes dried. But it’s a water sport, right? And unlike back home in New York, the stuff falling from the sky was rain, not snow/sleet/hail/wintry mix.
What a wind! Glad it seems like you got your trip underway again quickly!
Yes, especially when the wind got behind us! We had to paddle twice as far the next day to stay on schedule, but it was still nice to spend extra time on Bahia Honda, as it has one of the most beautiful beaches on the Atlantic.
That’s a positive approach, alright! 🙂
Lol. We had a small advisory for half of our trip. Your video captured the winds well!
Ah, so you know! Only wish we could’ve filmed while paddling in it later. Was your sailing delightful?
I can’t imagine paddling in it! I am impressed. Sailing was great fun. The keys are a beautiful place to enjoy some blue water.
Had you visited the Keys before your December trip? We’d love to hear more about your trip– where you stayed, which Keys visited, etc. Thanks! J&A
We stayed at Key Lime sailing club in key largo. From there we took day trips to Bahia Honda, islamorada, and key west. Prior to our last trip, my husband and I visited the keys 13 years ago and stayed wherever we could get a cheap hotel. Lol.
Those east coast storms just follow you around! 🙂
