South Florida and the Florida Keys: Big Cypress and the Ochopee Post Office
We've spent a lot of time in the Florida Keys, and recently we got a chance to go out into the Big Cypress Preserve. Joe has been studying his family history and discovered that some of his relatives lived in this area so we spent a day exploring South Florida and eventually found our way to Chokoloskee. Along the way we found one of the smallest post offices in the country in Ochopee.
The Ochopee Post Office is downright tiny and looked like a single room We bought a couple post cards and you don't actually go inside: there is a big sliding window that opens to the service counter when you walk up. The place is a bit of a tourist attraction and we actually had to wait our turn to take a few pictures in front of the building, but it was worth the wait. How often do you see the smallest post office, even if you do ride with Josh and Joe Travels?
