Although I snapped several photos, I thought video would be the best way to show what has changed at Flamingo since my last visit in 2008. Comparing 2008 to when I lived and worked there in the late 1990s is even a greater change especially since while living there, services were in full operation. In 2008, services were limited and the Lodge and dining facilities were closed.

Below are two brief videos. One shows the interior of the Buttonwood Cafe which now serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. While working there in the 1990s, it served lunch and dinner and the best (and only) pizza in town.

The other video shows the classic and unchanged view (except for the pink restaurant) of Florida Bay from the National Park Service Flamingo Visitor Center breezeway.

Enjoy.
