Looking for a good paddle? Here’s an invitation to join me on a day kayak trip in the Lower Florida Keys on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. The plan is to join Burnham Guides during a full-day excursions on the Seven Mile Bridge Crossing. If you’re not familiar, the Seven Mile Bridge was originally built to carry Henry Flagler’s railroad called Overseas Railway through the Keys. We’ll paddle between the old and new bridges with a stop at Historic Pigeon Key.
Cost is typically $135 and includes lunch, admission to Pigeon Key and a fantastic day on the water! But for this trip, Burnahm Guides is extending a discounted rate of $100 per person which includes lunch! Transportation, lodging, other meals and gratuity are on your own.
If interested, book direct with Burnham Guides at either 305-240-0650 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I haven’t decided on a hotel but I’m sure I’ll find a cozy one with character. Of course, the evening will end with a nice Florida Keys dinner.
For all the years living in Flamingo I never kayaked and only canoed once. I’ve seen Pigeon Key from the bridge but never stopped. It was Henry Flagler’s 5-acre work camp housing 400 railway workers. Today it preserves the Florida Keys history and culture so I’m really looking forward to this excursion.
If you’re planning on coming along, leave me a comment or drop a line.
Hope you’ll join me!
