Marathon Key

This morning, Mark and Sue headed out toward the Orlando area to visit Sue’s brother for a few days.  Patsy and I had made reservations at the “Jolly Roger” Campground, a Passport America park, on Marathon Key for two days.

Last night, Sue made dinner……… fried shrimp, salmon, black-eyed peas, and potatoes.  It was good, and Mark served as a waiter!!  Here’s a picture……

As we drove north toward Marathon Key, we crossed the ‘Seven Mile’ bridge.   Here’s the view from the Bus……

We arrived at the Jolly Roger campground and got into our site……….

Marathon Key 031 After we got set up in the site, we took a drive to look at two of the state parks between here and Key West that we passed on the road.  They were Bahia Honda State Park and Curry Hammack State Park.  We were able to talk the ranger at each park to let us go in to see the campgrounds.  Both were very nice……. and for Mark’s information, both had openings for Saturday night!!

We then returned to the campground and walked around it.  There is a dock area, with some nice RV sites around it…………
