The end of US 1

The End With Fireworks

That is the end of my East Coast Greenway bicycle ride from Maine to Florida. Bad timing – 4th of July…

Southernmost Point, Key West, Hemingway House Museum, snorkeling at Barrier Reef. I like Key West very mach, with all crowds, such an interesting and pretty little town. But! No place to stay in hammock. No place to stay for person with air-condition decease. Well, I managed to hang my hammock at the police station at night, around the air base gates, but it could work only for one night.

So I’ve got myself back to Daytona Beach, relaxed for a few days at the ranch of my AT friend step mother, Maria, forget to take any picture, laundered everything including bear Bear, and flew to Chicago. Without bike.
