For the last six years, we have gone to Key West in May. We won't be returning this year, so I thought I might share a few photos from years past. Key West is a fun, crazy place. Our drive there takes us right across the state, through the Everglades, over a stretch of road called Alligator Alley...yes, you can see them basking on the side of the swampy banks. There is a chain link fence, however, so they can't wonder out in traffic.
Snaking through the Keys takes a full three hours...lots of beautiful water views and funky beach towns along the way. Sections of the old railroad bridge remain. The train ran through the Keys, carrying wealthy folks to winter homes and resorts in Key West.
The Audubon House...the house belonged to a sea captain...James Audubon was a visitor and painted the local birds and fauna in the garden. Beautiful old house...love the key lime green shutters...and the pie isn't bad either.
...gorgeous Key West home...
Roosters roam all over town, as well as six toed cats that descend from cats owned by Ernest Hemingway, who had a home here.
This is sunset by the hotel...
..and this is what greets you in the morning. Cruise ships come in to port during the night and when you wake up...there they are.
...none of these belong to me...
...the best grouper sandwich in town served here...
Those two look familiar!
The Southernmost Point of the U.S.A....90 miles to Cuba.
Hope you enjoyed a quick peek at Key West!
Enjoy the day,
