May 3, 2015 to May 6, 2015
Start: Key West Florida Mooring Cove
Finish: Key West Florida, Key West Marina
As we prepared to leave our mooring ball the winds are still gusting to the high 20 knot range, it was another gorgeous day, in the mid 80's with a strong sea breeze. We are glad we made the decisions to spend extra time checking out Key West, as there are so many things to see!
Key West reminds us of Nantucket, lots of actives; snorkeling and diving, fun shops, too many restaurants to count, as well as lots of interesting history. We took a 3 hour tour, and, also we bought tickets to stop at the Earnest Hemingway and the summer White House used by Harry S. Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy and Bill Clinton. John Kennedy met the prime minister of Great Britain there just 22 days before the Bay of Pigs. Colin Powell used it to negotiate with foreign governments. The tours were great and we can't wait to share with our charter clients.
We spent the next day walking Key West with its many shops. We also took a walk to the Key West Light House and the Marker noting it is only 90 miles to Cuba.
The weather treated us well the next day so we could go to Ft. Jefferson and the Dry Torgugas!
