Florida City to Islamorada 46 miles.

Started out this morning with a quartering headwind that was the strongest I have had cruising speed dropped to around 12mph. The Windwrap fairing is still in question as to its effectiveness, one thing it has been great for is keeping the direct sun off my legs. The slight tint has been perfect for that. If I had one for my arms and face I would be in good shape.

Speaking of weather I haven’t had any rain but the south Florida heat is still tough even in the winter. Temp was about 90F but much hotter down close to the pavement where I am.

Here are a few pictures.

This is where you know you are in the Keys.
