Gonna Soak Up the Sun


So I realize that the name ‘Keys’ doesn’t actually refer to keys that unlock locks and all. From what I understand, ‘key’ is an alternate spelling of ‘cay’, which in turn came from the Spanish word ‘cayo’ meaning small island, and ‘cayo’ itself was derived from the Taino word for island, ‘cairi’.

However, I like to imagine that ‘Keys‘ implies something else as well. What with all the shipwrecks that have occurred throughout history in the area, maybe the Keys are the key to finding some buried treasure, a ship full of gold that has long since been lost to the depths of the ocean.

Also, iguana.
