Florida Keys Real Estate News

Stunning... Beautiful... Amazing... Breathtaking...Magical...Colorful... Perfect timing... So many words to describe this sunset.  And the sailboat - was just a bonus!  Living in Islamorada, Florida Keys never gets old.  After twenty years, I am still in awe of the sunsets, blue water and crisp air!   Being able to boat around with my little girl was spectacular today.  From Lower Matecumbe Key, we went to Founder's Park - a little bumpy on the way there but I knew the ride back would be more enjoyable.  After stopping at a friend's house and filming this sunset, we headed home.  I love my life and my job!  When you are ready to make the Florida Keys your home, give me a call!

The Florida Keys is a large boating community.  Whether you like to fish offshore or in the backcountry, snorkel or dive, sail or just cruise around - Islamorada is a great place to boat.  The Village of Islamorada is made up of 4 islands and each island is about 4 miles long, which mean many bridges / cut throughs from the ocean side to the bay side.  One of the coolest channels, in Islamorada, is the Wheel Ditch, which is located on the North end of Lower Matecumbe Key.  If you are heading North, you will exit near Robbie's Marina.  Here is a video of my family going through the wheel ditch.  My husband is sitting up front with our daughter and I am driving the boat.  To toot my own horn, I have been driving around these waters for the past 20 years - many times without my husband on the boat.  I held my captain's license for about 18 years.  I love boating around this amazing place!  I know these waters and understand the importance of control depths and bridge heights.  Here is a little rhyme for you to remember when boating around the area - it might come in handy one day...

brown, brown run aground
white, white you just might
blue, blue cruise on through!
