US - Key West and Dry Tortugas

We had a day trip by ferry from Key West to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas islands.

$165 included breakfast and lunch.

It would be nice if by air.


The Yankee Ferry company staff provided a guided tour of Fort Jefferson.

The sunshine divides the gates.

Story about cannon...

A boy felt bored sitting there while his mom was listening to the tour guide.
A girl walking on the moat wall, she and her family going to snorkeling.
After the tour, Steve and I went snorkeling, very beautiful coral.

We could see the coral also when we were walking on the moat wall. 

Ferry back to Key West arrive around 5.30 p.m.
We headed to see sunset, with a crowd of people.

A couple having a sunset cruise wedding.

So romantic and beautiful.

Sunset gone, the street performances begin.

These two guys' performance was really awesome, 
and they have good strategy wanting tips from audiences. 
It seems they are successful. 

 The next morning, I said to Steve nicely, I want to see The Southernmost point before leaving Key West. But he said no, and driving about 5 miles then. 
He turned back after my voice louder.
Here, I see the view, southernmost in the continental USA. 

If I didn't see it at that moment, I didn't know when I will back to this place again.

First time we flew by Southwest airline, I love it.
Not only because of their heart shape logo, but their service is good.

We were in nice warm weather at Fort Lauderdale airport but coming home we saw the ground covered in snow.

I enjoy reading your beautiful pictorial diary of your trip to Key West. It is so well done. It also brings back my own fond memory.
