Enjoying the last of the sunset on our rooftop

Jay and I enjoying the sail out on the Blu Q catamaran

John made friends with Skipper Steve, and got to drive for a while

Looking up the Blu Q's Mast

Here I am relaxing in the 85 degree 95% humidity

John bought a waterproof pouch for the digital camera to try and get some shots while skin diving

There was some light overcast, so the camera had trouble with the lighting. The color of the fish was amazing in person

Some of the smaller brain coral formations

John got a picture of me diving

here is the sting ray that tried to attack me (not really - but it did swim right at me)

Jay and me returning to the boat

We rented bikes one day to tour the island

Our first stop was Hemmingway's house (it was a bit of a dissapointment)

Jay and John waiting for the tour to begin

The grounds were very lush

His wife built the first pool on Key West. It was originally filled with salt water.

Hemmingway's study

Key West light house

We stopped at the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory

The variety of moths, butterflies, and birds was very interesting

The grounds were also very beautiful

It was a good place to try out the close-up feature of my new camera

It was actually a very nice place, and we really enjoyed our time there

Of all the 'Tourist' stops, this was probably the best value

Fort Jefferson was also a nice suprise. It was historically interesting, and had some nice ocean views.

Here are the 3 of us at the southern most point in the continental US

We returned to Ft Jefferson to get some sunset pictures

Here is Jay getting some of his spectacular shots. Make sure you check out his Kodak ablum (link is on our main page)

John did some sea shell searching, and found one that was inhabited.

There was a full moon rising as the sun set

This is one of the many sunset cruise boats that go out every evening

3 bikes waiting to take us back to the room
