Example text

Fish hawks are a fairly common sight, often perched menacingly on top of pine trees or floating on the updrafts as mere specks in the sky. American bald eagles are a little bit bigger than hawks. Eagles are rarely seen nesting in the remote mangroves, but look for their dark body and distinctive white head. Cormorants, or what I like to call "diving ducks," can be seen sitting on top of pilings and sticks. They swim quite well underwater, looking for fish which they gobble up with their long, thin beaks.

Few high-rise condos exist. Certainly, there are more roadside attractions (and many of them are cheesy), but the reasons I loved the Keys when I was growing up - pristine waters, good fishing and diving, the pervasive bohemian community in Key West - are still there. The Land Southern Florida is low and flat with lots of pine trees and mangroves near the coast. Most of the Everglades and surrounding areas are wet about half the year and have groups of cypress and pine forests spread among huge seas of saw grass.

The unfortunate effects of karaoke and DJs are felt perhaps a little less here than in other parts of the country. Live music is provided in many clubs, bars and restaurants up and down the Keys. The Hurricane in Marathon and the Geiger Key Smokehouse, next to Big Coppitt Key, are oases of live music. Noted entertainers include Big Dick and the Extenders (quite good in spite of their unfortunate name), Alfonso (known as "Fonz"), the Charlie Morris Blues Band (led by my brother), and Barry Cuda (also with an unfortunate name, but very good).
