under the seven mile bridge,the part that is concrete.Is that solid concrete or did they put sand in hollow spaces?Thanks,Dean Thompson

RE: deans714

It is hollow. They are concrete box sections in the shape of a flat base letter V, with a flat platform on top, that were poured in place and strung together, like a necklace, with steel cables and tensioned to what is esentially a hanging bridge. Utility cables and pipes run trough the hollow space.


Travel Tips for Marathon

Snap Crackle and Pop

by grandmaR

When we come out to the highway we pass under these power lines. When it is humid (most of the time) you can hear them crackling as the moisture gets to the wires. (Power lines such as these are not insulated - something to bear in mind if you are kite flying or parachuting or if one comes down to where you are.) It's really interesting to see the pelicans fly through or over the power lines.

When we walk and are waiting for a gap in the traffic to cross - we say to each other, "Must be humid - they are really crackling today"

Near to New Years we heard some explosions and at first we thought it was gunfire because it wasn't humid so we could see the lines weren't crackling. But we decided it was fire crackers.

Old Seven Mile Bridge

by grandmaR

The old 7 mile bridge was quite narrow. I didn't realize how narrow it was until I saw it again.

It is only possible to access the ends of the bridge from the Fleming Key end to Pigeon Key, and then there has been a piece taken out (photo 4) so that ships with taller superstructures can go through Moser Channel. Also it's probably to reduce liability. A similar piece has been taken out at the other end. So you can no longer get to the middle by land. Consequently, if one wants to take a picture of the old bridge, one must do it from the new bridge. I made many attempts to do this, and this is the best one. The bridge is deteriorating and rusting and trees are now growing on it. I only managed to catch the edge of one tree in this picture. There is a second photo (#3) which also shows the old bridge from the new one, and two photos (#2 and 5) that show closeups of the bridge from the little train called Henry.

Spirit Coral Reef Snorkeling

by PJcips

The Spirit was spacious and smooth. Crew was extremely helpful and a lot of fun. Would definitely go again. They even helped us with the underwater cameras. It was neat having a lighthouse in the snorkel pics. All gear is provided. Wet suits only $6 extra, but you don't really need one. Even offered prescription goggles.

MM 1194.1 Burdines Waterfront and Marina

by grandmaR

Burdines has monthly slips for $17.95/ft in 2004. But it is a small marina, and the slip reservations for the winter go fast. The tiki bar has live music most nights. Burdine's has gas and diesel, airfills & equipment rental for scuba, live & frozen bait, cold drinks, convenience groceries, fishing tackle & misc. supplies. The small marina is well protected, with new showers and bathrooms, cable TV and phone ready. VERY friendly people. The Chiki Tiki on the balcony is a great local bar with sandwiches and superb blackened french fries and great burgers (big). Also has fried key lime pie.. Gary Simmons, marina manager

Key Colony Beach Golf and Tennis

by grandmaR

This is one of two public golf courses in the Keys. The other one is on Stock Island next to Key West. This short par 3 course has small greens. The fairways are generous because there is no rough. There are no water hazards, but bunkers do come into play. The signature hole is #8, a 121-yard, par 3, which plays to an elevated green with a flat top. Ladies tee off from the same set as the men.
