Last year, Palm Beach Daily News travel writer Cheryl Blackerby  wrote a piece about her trip to Islamorada and how the Moorings Village and Spa and other Florida Keys locations became stars of the show.

‘Bloodline’ ended earlier this year but is still available on Netflix. Meanwhile, Islamorada and the Keys are trying to recover after being decimated by Irma. As a result, the Moorings announced last week on its website it would not accept reservations for the rest of 2017.

On Sept. 11, the Moorings also posted on its Facebook page: “The security, well-being and safety of our guests and staff is always the highest priority in all emergency situations. Due to the mandatory evacuation of the Florida Keys and ramifications of Hurricane Irma, The Moorings is currently closed and not accepting reservations for the remainder of 2017. Once the storm passes and we can return to the property and assess damage, we will make a decision regarding re-opening. We appreciate your understanding and ask for your patience during this time. Our thoughts remain with all of those affected by the storm.”
