Marathon Key, Florida, United States - 22nd May 2010
Today we go down to "The Keys"!! Florida keys are a chain-like cluster of about 1700 islands in the southeast United States, beginning from 15 miles (24 km)south of Miami. At the nearest point, the southern tip of Key West is just 94 miles (151 km) from Cuba. The word "key" comes from the Spanish "Cayo", meaning small island.
Marathon is located among the "Middle Keys", about 2 hours from Miami. We arrive at the beach.
We go there for the dragon boat festival. Here are the atheletes getting ready!
Here they are loading up the boat. The dragon boat is a long boat that seats two paddlers in 10 rows. The watersport originate in China.
The beach is really beautiful!!
On the shore there are some vendors for food as well as arts and crafts.
After each heat, the racers come to check out their time at the score board.
What a beautiful day to be out on the Florida beach!!
