Ligumvitae and Indian Key side trip

Do NOT Miss a trip to Indian Key and Ligumvitae State Park.

Indian Key has the compelling tale of a real life PIRATE, Joseph Houseman!!! If you go out with the tour from Robbie’s wharf (an old style hippie conclave if I have ever seen one) you will get all the juicy back story and some of it may even be true!!  CLick here for the official story






This is a Ligumvitae tree. The wood is harder than IRON!!


Next… they take you to Ligumvitae Key- one of the only virgin forest sites IN the keys. A lovely restored house from the 19th century and the most stunning example of the now outlawed  Coquina masonry construction I have every observed.
