Hello Key Biscayne!
I know you’re busy so this will save you the trouble: freebee has expanded service and there’s new parking spaces being installed. The rest is tangentially related to the Key but you may want to read it anyway.
Business sand in the front, party sand in the back.
There are a few photos, though. Let’s get on with it.
Lemme get a ride Freebee is expanding their service and will now take you to and from Bill Baggs and Crandon Park. But will they take you from Bill Baggs to Crandon Park, with a cocktail in hand? That was not made clear. 🍸
It’s a match Did you have your car stolen because you left your keys inside? You’re not alone. It’s happening across the country but here’s a story about it happening to more people in South Florida. Maybe you can all meet up and start a support group. 👨👩👧👧
Can’t touch this Gov. DeSantis has come in and wiped away all fines given for mask violations. You may remember he originally made it unenforceable to collect fines, but Dade County and the Village continued enforcement on the premise that fines could be collected later. This puts a damper on that parade and frees the three people who somehow managed to get a fine from having to pay. 🎭
Egret alert! Got a hot tip that there would be more bird activity this year, in particular that more great egrets than ever will be flying around this year on the Key. Couldn’t find anything about it but, hey, keep your eye out for birds. 🦅
What's happenin' on Fernwood?
And why is there a fence at the Village Green?
This is two weeks of work.
