Pass the word to all Florida Keys residents with swimming pools to turn the water off when vacationing. We always turn the water off to the house, but leave the water on to the pool as the pool people will not bother with adding water to the pool if it entails anything extra. I was mad when I got hold of andrew yesterday who said he found the hose pipe had split because the water tap had been turned on full blast and the nozzle was shut. It wasted 15000 gallons which flowed into the canal. I have informed neptune pools who have sacked the pool man and cannot interview him. Jim the supervisor will be there today and check things out. It happened about two and a half weeks ago. Thanks for your help and spreading the word on water leaks when out of town.
It has been a great pleasure to come down and vacation all over the Florida Keys, for about the last fifteen years or so. We have learned a lot about the different parts of the islands and which is best for certain activities or boater friendly. I would tell people that have boats, and are bringing them down on their boat trailer, Islamorada, Marathon, and Tavernier are the best areas. The most important thing is to have quick access to get out to the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean. Key Largo is a long island area that has very few boater access areas and bridges. Key West is fantastic if you can find a nice place such as at the Pelican Landing. A sweet spot to enjoy with or without a boat, but this town is all about watersports play. Bring any type of boat that will go under the bridge with an eighteen-foot clearance. The Harborside Motel is another Boater Hotel. This hideaway hotel's location is in the city center, just off of the big marina. Bring or Rent a Boat, you can then dock right there behind the hotel.
