I have a CD entitled Tropical Winds and I am playing it right now. Really. What’s a boat basin? Apparently, a marina. A fancy ass term for marina. Who knew?

Wikipedia has these facts on Windley Key, in case you wanted to visit:

  • Windley Key is an island in the upper Florida Keys.
  • U.S. 1 (the Overseas Highway) crosses the key at approximately mile markers 84—85.5, between Plantation Key and Upper Matecumbe Key.
  • All of the key is within the Village of Islamorada as of November 4, 1997, when it was incorporated.
  • Windley Key is home to Theater of the Sea, a popular tourist attraction since 1946.
  • A Florida State Park Service geological site, and the popular Holiday Isle resort are also on the island.

We drove past Theatre of the Sea on our most recent trip to the Florida Keys. I didn’t remember it until I saw a picture of the sign.

I can’t find anything on the Tropical Winds Resort now, and doing a Google Street View shows nothing similar.
