The Lower Keys or what I’ll call “Big Pine metro”, includes the islands of Big Pine, Little Torch and Big Torch Key, Ramrod and Summerland, Cudjoe and Sugarloaf. Each Island is unique in its environment and boating access, which does translate down to home prices. More on that below.
When you enter the Lower Keys, you will see right away that it is much more laid back. Generally, the further you get away from Miami, the more the Bahamian feel. And to some extent, particularly on Big Pine and its attached No Name Key, and a couple of other spots in the Lower Keys, that sensibility is well-preserved despite the rapid development of the very limited remaining land available for new building. Parts of Sugarloaf preserve this same feel, and residents of the Torches and Ramrod would claim that too. It’s less true on Cudjoe and Summerland, but they have other advantages.
A few other general reflections about this area, why it’s different, will help bring it into focus.
Teddy Roosevelt started the national wildlife refuges here about
100 years ago, to save the birds; and the bird life is definitely
a terrific part of the Lower Keys special ambience
Looe Key is one of the best places to snorkel and dive in the whole Keys chain. It wasn’t always so tranquil: it got its name when a British ship of that name went down centuries ago, and it was long a principal cause of shipwrecks in this part of the Keys. Today its main problem is the worldwide bleaching of coral reefs, happening here too (30% since the early 1990’s), but so far I don’t notice fish reduction. Come enjoy it while you can!
Fishing is outrageously good: backcountry including flyfishing for tarpon, or offshore in the Gulfstream or along the reef line, near American Shoal lighthouse, or any drifting weed line; or try barracuda from a kaya
Key West in general: you can go to Fantasy Fest, for example, and go home afterwards. Someday you’ll be able to go to Cuba with ease, since you’re only about 90 miles away!
Boating is different here: water pretty shallow, big boats more rare
than middle and upper keys, or Key West; forget sailboats in most
areas. We’ve tried to differentiate that for you island by island,
see below, but as a general rule of thumb, you have to look harder
for deep water access here than, say, in Marathon, Key West, or Oceanside
There are exceptions to that rule, and they tend to cost more: Cudjoe Gardens, Summerland Key, one section of Big Pine along Pine Channel. There are few deep natural channels between Gulf and Ocean near the more built-up areas which most bigger pleasure boats can use, but unlike most of Key Largo, at least they exist.
Basic Tips In Converting To Solar Energy added 5-6-2013
More and more businesses and homeowners are converting to solar energy because they realize that it is a win-win situation. Solar power is an unlimited source of power that will not deplete the environment. Solar power is free, so that means cost savings for everyone. Converting to solar power is not that difficult. You do not have to turn your whole life upside-down for the transition. You can just start with a small area in your living environment. This article will provide you with some helpful suggestions in how you can make a smooth transition to solar power.
It is a good idea to start small by converting some of your smaller appliances to solar power. Figure out how much energy they need to power up, then calculate how many solar panels you would need to product that amount of energy. At this point, you can consult with a company that specializes in solar energy to give you some guidance on your options. The company can give you some guidelines in how to calculate your energy usage so you can make an accurate estimate of how much equipment you need.
