In past years, we've always enjoyed snorkeling and David loved spearfishing. No spearfishing here in the Keys (at least in the parks) but at least we're snorkeling again! I was supposed to do laundry this morning, but when we got up and it was perfectly calm, we decided to change the plan. Flat water and snorkeling sites just a few miles away.... QUICK, find the snorkeling gear & load it in the dinghy!
Sombrero Key Light in the distance, we dropped anchor in sand just off the Flagler or Delta Barge. Not an easy spot to find, it's a 1920's barge sunken in one of the hurricanes during the construction of the the railroad to Key West. It's now turned into a nice little reef. Lots of fish. No dive mooring balls, so it was a bit difficult to find.
Now that we've rediscovered snorkeling, we're on the lookout for more good snorkel sites, shallow enough to enjoy the reef and close enough to reach by dinghy. Anyone have any suggestions?
