No need to rush today. We slept in, got breakfast, loaded up the car and took US 1 north. 25 Km from Key West we had our first stop, a bat tower. Once build thinking that bats would come and live in this 18m high tower and eat most of the mosquitoes this tower now serves no purpose. Next stop was Marathon where we visited the Turtle Hospital. Whenever sea turtles are found injured by boats, trash or disease they are brought here for treatment. After seeing a presentation about the workings of this non-profit organization we visited the operation room and then it was time to meet the patients. After our visit we drove on to Key Largo where we checked in to our room.
