This is the entrance to the Botanical Gardens on Stock Island. It is a fantastic place, I've always loved the sign on the left...
Today my post isn't on the Botanical Garden, alot of people may not realize that when you go through the gate, and follow the bottom arrow and turn right...
You will have an opportunity to see an amazing testament to human will
These are various boats and rafts that were recovered from our surrounding waters by persons trying to make the 90 miles from Cuba, to Key West, to America, to freedom
No one knows for sure how many have actually made it
Or how many tried and did not
I try to keep my posts light, and point out things the normal visitor may not realize is here
But when seeing things like this....
It's really hard not to feel humbled, and grateful,
And proud to live in America
