Key West, Florida

Third Port of the Cruise was Key West, FL (N24 33.301 W81 48.691).

We walked around looking at the shops and such and then Jill had the great idea of renting bikes.

The beach cruisers were a perfect way to see the sights, both tourist traps like the Southern Most Point of the US and Hemingway's house and also the seedy underbelly.

We were able to see a lot of places that I'm sure most people don't get to see.

But we eventually ended up right back at the touristy area. We browsed through a few shops, walk around the marina and then we found a Wyland Whaling Wall which was cool for me.

I don't think Jill had ever heard of Wyland but think she appreciated the artwork.

We purchased some key lime juice and a cookbook at The Key Lime Pie Factory.

We forgot to bring any suntan lotion so after several hours of riding around in the sun we were getting pretty crispy.

It was our favorite port of the trip, which I think is because we had the freedom of the bikes.

Again, people watching was favorite past time.

Key West had some great specimens.

We returned the bikes and found some great food at Fogarty's.

Jill had an amazing (and very large) Blue Bacon Burger and I had a great Shrimp Po Boy. Mmmm!

We hurried through our dinner so we could finally see the sunset.

Our dinner time each night was right during the sunset so we missed it all the other nights.

We were rewarded with a pretty cool one on the last night or our cruise.

Here are the rest of the pictures from Key West.
