I had hoped the side of the island that faced Florida Bay was more protected, but the great wave that had come over the island from the ocean had washed straight through to the other side.
Florida Bay was full of them and, still farther south, the Key West area had its own share—tiny tufts of greenery punctuating the saltwater flats out beyond Boca Chica, beyond Sugarloaf Key, offshore from the Snipe Keys and Squirrel Key and Johnston Key, out between the Bob Allen Keys and the Calusa Keys, north of Crawl Key, north of Fiesta Key, all the way back to Key Largo.
The boxcar wasn’t much to look at, but it sheltered Sharkey from the crosswinds that blew from the Atlantic on one side and Florida Bay on the other.
We stayed on the platform between cars, listening to the clicking of the wheels and watching the dark-blue Atlantic on the left and the turquoise Florida Bay on the right as we moved from one Key to another.
