Day Three Hundred Seventeen

Florida - Long Boat Key

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Flight 5
Notes: When I first looked at this card, I was certain that this was one of the of Florida Keys - one of the string of islands off of the southern coast of Florida.  However, it is not.  Long Boat (or Longboat) Key is located off the west coast of Florida, between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.  The island, and the town of the same name, have a population of around 7,000 people.  Almost the entire land of the island is occupied with single-family homes and condominiums.

Florida - Miami Beach, Miami

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Flight 7
Notes: As this card says, this is Miami Beach.  It is separated from Miami proper by Biscayne Bay, and has a population of around 90,000 people.  According to the back of the card, this view is looking along Collins Avenue towards the Fontainebleau Hotel.  I'm not sure which building is the hotel though.
