Visit to historic Pigeon Key

On Marathon Key we took a boat trip to Historic Pigeon Key. The trip was a short 15 minute boat ride. 
Our boat, going under the new and old bridge.

We didn’t have a reservation and didn’t need one. There was only another couple the tour guide and crew. 
Make reservation here

The other couple were from Texas. They were from the Hill country, our favorite part of Texas. Turns out they were married at a small chapel about one mile from our favorite RV Park, at least in Texas. Talk about a small world.

Back to Pigeon Key. The Key is historic in that it was a place that housed up  to 4,000 workers building the overseas highway and seven mile bride.  You can see more here  
Some of the original buildings. The long building was a dormitory for the workers 

Of special interest to Bob were the old cachet stamp covers .

This is a very interesting bit of history.

Thanks for following along.



  1. We are getting a lot of ideas for our Keys trip.

  2. Looks lovely. What RV park are you staying at? Did I miss that post? Thanks.
