Cabbage Key; shower with a friend

Cabbage Key is small and accessible only by boat. It is just north of Boca Grande Pass and Captiva  Island. They describe it as the home of the Cheeseburger in Paradise after the famed Jimmy Buffet song. Not so sure about the song but the place is special and uniquely beautiful.

We have passed the Key many times believing we could not fit well, due to our size. But they told us not to worry, they could accommodate larger vessels than us. We were excited by the  prospect.

We fit rather nicely. This is a very active marina with many hundreds of boats coming every day, most for lunch, and then they leave.
Since this was a Key there was no water at the dock only power so we made water for the day.

 A good motto to live by!!

 After getting settled we decided to go exploring the site and started with the water tower that was fitted with an observation tower.

 This fine fellow was sitting on their John Deere lawn mower. He looks rather proud of himself.

 From the observation tower it was a beautiful setting and you can see Seabright in the distance.

There were a number of small cottages nestled in the palm groves and this interesting fellow with  creeping vines surrounding him.

 There are a number of vines which use the palm trees as support to grow. This one was old and big.

These vines look like something out of a story. A great place to be for Halloween at dusk!

Here is my new hair do!
