    I remember Lenora Albury from back in the 1970s, As a kid I would ride down to Key Largo to visit her and her family. The things I recall are the House that was a stones throw from the ocean, getting a fishing pole and goin to that little cove to fish, where George the White Heron would wait while I unhooked a fish for him. The large moray eel just down in the rocks, seagrape trees abundant with masses of grapes,Those huge garden spiders hanging above us, Sitting with Aunt Mac as she was called then at the picnic table between their house and her Moms trailer. going to the library once while I was there. she was really a nice person of what I recall, Uncle Calvin was a fishing guide I recall. He would recall of stories of fishing with Hoover and storms and such. It was a time I will remember fondly due to her kindness.
