Day 8 – Driving to the Florida Keys

Concrete barriers block views on the narrow ribbon of highway leading to the Florida Keys.

With that stop done, we moved onto Florida’s Turnpike, and headed south to Key Largo; the drive was rather monotonous, and the Florida toll system is weird; they do not use EZ-Pass that is common in the northeast, and at some points we pass places that state they are taking pictures of the license plate tags and will send us a bill in the mail.

The turnpike went fast though – and soon we were paralleling the Everglade park, along a long two-lane highway that was all that is left of Route 1/1A and I-95 when you get this far south. As if to remind us we were leaving Florida, the Jersey Barriers were painted or stained a light blue – and with all the barriers and fences, it was like driving a slot car racer.
