Key West! We made it!

US Highway #1 in the Keys heading SOUTH
Sightseeing in downtown Key West
We are as far south in the USA as you can get and it was jacket weather...cloudy and looked like rain. But it is always sunny in Margaritaville!

The beach at low tide at Cumberland Island. Hard packed sand that the forest service vehicles traveled quite easily. Lots of shells to find.
Just off the beach we encountered more of these hardy Live Oaks covered with Spanish Moss.

A few of the reported wild horses on Cumberland Island. The stallion is herding the mares away from us and around the back of Dungeness. These horses, although wild, had no great fear of humans and wouldn't hesitate to run through or over you.

One of the Live Oak lined walkways on Cumberland Island. The Live Oak in the foreground is said to be over 300 years old and the others were planted by the Carnegies . These younger trees are over 100 years old. They obviously thrive in this sandy soil and have outlasted many hurricanes.

The Cumberland Lady is the launch operated by the National Park Service to take people from St. Mary's, GA to Cumberland Island. They claim that the boat can carry 150 people but most of the people would be outside on the decks and it sure would be crowded for this 45 minute ride to and from the island.

Here's the front bathroom tub/jacuzzi/shower. Looks fantastic. Only
thing remaining is to set the bisque new toilet and then put down
the ceramic tile and it'll be complete.

Here we are at the end of day #2. Two cabinets are in the laundry room and
this is what the kitchen is looking like. We're making progress and it's slowly
starting to return to "normal".

Two kitchen cabinets up and one more ready to go. Paul and Steve had a slow first day because they had to reposition some electrical boxes and and the stainless steel blacksplash ( the grey looking areas in the photo ). They're hoping to make more progress on day #2. Hope so as the appliances are due to arrive on Tuesday and we need the room to store them as the garage is full of cabinets.
