Day 26: Key West to Okeechobee 270miles/434km

There is only one way to go.

We are on our way to a very special destination for the weekend.
Meanwhile come with us over the bridges linking the keys.
There are hundreds of keys including a No Name Key, Phillip Key but no John Key.
As we ride on Key Largo clouds loom ahead.

We stop for a break and meet Cindy with Julia and Jake.

What a bubbly trio. Cindy has been to New Zealand and wants to return.

We are self appointed specialist New Zealand 'tourist ambassadors' when we are on our motorcycle journeys. We meet lots of people who are interested in our country.

We are only an email away for those of you who want more information.

Uh oh, we thought we had missed the rain. Never mind, it is warm rain and doesn't last long.
Clear skies as we ride near Okeechobee. Canals bring water to the fields. Sorghum and sugar cane crops and lots of cattle.
School is still in for children in this area.

 

A glimpse of lake Okeechobee beyond the levees.
These spectacular clouds bring us to Okeechobee town and we find a place to stay.

 

Another lovely day for a ride.
