Day 11: May 26, 2015 South Beach Miami to Key Largo 78 miles, 100 degrees

Today was our longest ride, 78 miles, and it was also a challenging route. Katie did a great job of navigating, we followed the Google Maps bicycling route. It was also very hot again with temps between 95 and 105 most of the day. The wildlife is getting interesting also, 2 parrots, 2 snakes, a 5 foot long iguana, and a cormorant stealing food from seagulls. We have two days of riding left: 51 miles tomorrow to Marathon Key and 50 miles Thursday to Key West.
