“Kelly McKinnon, executive director of the Pigeon Key Foundation, has lived for 14 years on the tiny historic island beneath the Middle Florida Keys’ Old Seven Mile Bridge. Currently, the personable 40-year-old is one of only four full-time island residents.

Kelly, who studied marine science in college, first landed on the island as the foundation’s education director after a professor told him about the job. He feels very fortunate to live in the tranquil place where nighttime activities include fishing, snorkeling, and kayaking.”

-Excerpt from Laura Myers’ editorial on Kelly McKinnion with the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.
