Leffis Key

Yet another installment in my neverending assay of Flo-zone's 4,500 islands (a statistic you can probably quintuple if you include islands less than 10 acres in size)... the amazing Leffis Key.

Leffis Key is completely unpopulated and, aside from a few wooden walkways built to enable you to walk over the thick mangrove swamp that makes up most of its surface, shows no signs of civilization whatsoever. It's located just off the bottom southeast coast of Anna Maria Island, just before the bridge that carries you over to Longboat Key.

The attentive reader may also have noted already that the cover image for my book The Seventeenth Island was taken from the edge of Leffis Key, with that other I-have-no-idea-what-it-is-because-no-map-seems-to-say island in the distance.
