Top of the morning, Aug. 1, 2016

One last time, let me thank everyone for playing along with "Where Am I."

This one was easier than I would have predicted, but I shouldn't have been surprised that so many folks recognized a genuine landmark: Old Seven, as the bridge is known.

If you've ever driven to Key West, you crossed the Seven-Mile Bridge. You have no choice: U.S. 1 is the only route into and out of the Keys.

Parallel to the bridge is its older counterpart, most of which has been closed for years — and part of which was the setting for a scene in the film "True Lies." A 2-mile stretch at the Marathon end of the bridge, which leads to Pigeon Key, has been open to pedestrians and cyclists, but was closed in July for a renovation project that will ensure folks can walk out there for years to come.

Tom Kacich was the first person with the correct answer, but he has the advantage of knowing how much I love the Keys.

Right behind was expat Joyce Wolverton, from across the state in Naples, Fla.
