While on our Long Key benchmark bonanza, Rich and I made a fortuitous stop at the fishing pier at the western end of the bridge over Channel 5, northeast of Long Key. Among several disks we found at this location was 872 3872 D TIDAL. It's set into the north curb of the old Route 1 bridge (now a fishing pier at this location) at the western end of the bridge. It is in good condition.
