Out of the Jurisdiction: Snorkeling

 John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo is near the start of the Florida Keys.
It is the first undersea park in the United States,  We took a boat ride into
the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, home to extensive coral reefs.

Then we snorkeled for an hour,

The snorkeling was fun.  I have a rarely used waterproof camera that was given its turn.
After some blurry shots as I was getting used to the camera (and snorkeling),
I thought the camera gave a good account of itself.

Then, chilling at sundown on the beach at Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada before dinner.

Thanks for the opportunity to see underwater. I don't think I could do it

Great shots underwater, congratulations. I could never do that, I hate swimming. So it's good to get a glimpse of what I'm missing.
