These are the remains of a wooden bridge that was once highway 1, the only road into Key West.
Exiting Tarpon Creek.
Pointing towards Lois Key. This key was once used to raise rhesus monkeys but was abandoned due to the damage that the monkeys did to the mangroves.
The fast ride back. In the first segment of the video look beyond the bridge and notice the bend in the creek. The current and wind were at my back moving very fast. If I did not make the turn I would have bend pinned against the mangroves. At this point in the video I quickly put away the camera, furled the sail, and peddled while turning hard left. The Adventure Island takes a while to turn because the wide stance of the amas ("outriggers") make it slow to pivot. I barely made it. Would have been a mess. Had I not furled (rolled up) the sail first, I am sure the wind would have pushed me into the branches.
