Island Fish

As a South Florida resident of more than 45 years, Hurricane Irma delivered another harsh realization of the risks of living by the sea. A year ago, we moved full time to the island of Marathon in the Florida Keys. We chose Marathon because it is away from the Key Largo and Islamorada weekend vacationers.
