Indialantic Restaurant

From the Biscayne National Park, we took the Florida Turnpike north to Interstate 75 (Alligator Alley), turned east for a few miles and the headed north again on Interstate 95.

The mid-afternoon traffic was quite unbelievable. I've not seen anything like it since I quite driving on 42nd Street in New York during rush hour.

We stayed overnight in Port St. Lucie. In the morning, toured Hutchinson Island, the first place on Florida's East Coast that I liked, and stopped for a late brunch here at in Indialantic..
