Sailing Under the Seven Mile Bridge... Pigeon Key
Sailing underneath the Seven Mile Bridge and on through to the Intercoastal side of the Middle Keys certainly was a memorable experience.
Memorable if only because of the length of that bridge and the fact that it straddles the historical and long since decommissioned Flagler Railroad Bridge.
The Flagler Railroad Bridge was constructed at a great cost back in the day. It later had the misfortune of being wiped out by a hurricane on September 2, 1932.
I suppose that sailing under the Golden Gate bridge would have been an even more captivating experience. In any event, sailing underneath the Seven Mile Bridge was pretty cool in of itself.
Nevertheless I was quite relieved after having successfully negotiated the narrow Moser Channel while under sail and of sailing on out into deeper waters.
