Day 374 On the Road, Grassy Key, FL

Almost the last day at the Monroe County Library!  We are grateful that they exist, but really wish they would have had WIFI that works consistently.  So frustrating to be in the middle of school and have it go out on the kids.  We know they are really strapped for cash here, so we understand.  It’s hard not to compare it to the Phoenix, Arizona library, the Ames, IA library, or even our library back home and not find it wanting.  We hope our next city has a better budget!

IMG_4273I had a headache from all the noise and smells at the library, so I went for one last walk at Curry Hammock State Park.  The pelicans were busy diving for fish near the shore and a group of us stood and watched for 10 minutes.  I’m going to have to do a little reading about pelicans because none of us could understand how they could hit the water, repeatedly, hard, and not get hurt. And feed themselves in the process!  It was really fun to watch, but the park closes at dusk, so I had to high tail it out of there.  Farewell, Curry Hammock, I doubt we’ll ever be back…
