Great photos! Love the tarpon shots. I've stayed right there at Bud n' Mary's and saw all those resident tarpon that hang under the boats. Fantastic in the Keys! Glad you had a ball.

supa, NO FISHING OFF THE DOCKS!!! you would likely be shot and run out of town!!! those fish keep the marina clean, and keep the torists coming back!!!
fin, i think next year, i will stay there also,planning on takeing my 3 boys and stay in the room above the store! the kids would have a blast hanging out at the marina!!!
