THE PRECIOUS STONE



A wise woman who was travelling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.
The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation.



The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.
But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.“I’ve been thinking,” he said. “I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious.
"Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone ."

I found that same reliable experience a week ago, on a spur-of-the-moment jaunt with my [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-52-CC-Sabathia-Red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-52/]Yankees 52 CC Sabathia Red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] youngest son to the Florida Keys.

Here are places I fell in love with again:

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Key Largo: Coral reefs cover less than 1 percent of the Earth's surface and the reef tract along the Florida Keys is the [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Mets-7-Jose-Reyes-blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-41/]Mets 7 Jose Reyes blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] third largest in the world, behind the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Meso-American Reef in Honduras.

Pennekamp (pennekamppark.com) is obviously a big destination for divers and snorkelers, who take advantage of daily reef excursions. Fortunately, there's another way to experience the colorful [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Reds-19-Votto-Navy-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-30/]Reds 19 Votto Navy 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] underwater life for visitors who never mastered the skill of breathing through a rubber tube and can't keep water from rushing past the rubber seals of a dive mask.

Glass-bottom boat tours depart three times daily for a 2 1/2-hour tour of Molasses Reef, five miles out in the Atlantic. The 65-foot "Spirit of Pennekamp" features two rectangular observation windows in the deck of its air-conditioned cabin. There wasn't much activity, aside from a sea turtle sighting, at least compared to the sting rays, nurse sharks and other critters I had seen on previous visits.

I was bummed, until a pair of dolphins arrived to play in the boat's wake on our return to the dock. The pilot circled them several times, allowing all the passengers to [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-24-Cano-Red-2011-All-Star-Jerseys-103/]Yankees 24 Cano Red 2011 All Star Jerseys[/url] enjoy an unexpected treat.

Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West: Although Duval Street has turned into an alcohol-friendly theme-park since its glory [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-2-Derek-Jeter-White-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-55/]Yankees 2 Derek Jeter White 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] days, there's still authentic history at author Ernest Hemingway's home at 907 Whitehead St. (hemingwayhome.com).

Tours are conducted by guides who could compete in any respectable Hemingway look-alike contest. Our guy, Stan, told tales of the house as if he'd just heard them, one of the reasons that I enjoy returning.
