Our Trip to Key West (2009)
First time, I had been here, I had brought my family for the day. We were camping in Key Largo. When we came back to Key Largo our tent was surrounded by water. We could barely reach it. Isabelle our baby was only a couple of months old.
Ward and I came by car, but let it parked. It's fairly easy to walk anywhere or you can take a trolley or use a rickshaw. The island is only 19 square kilometers. Ward truly enjoyed the town, it's culturally rich. There is a sign pointing to the fact that Cuba is 90 miles away across the Atlantic. There is a strong Cuban influence especially in the architecture. The town have beautiful sandy beaches, not too big. There are six main beaches not all of them are sandy. There is even one for the dogs. The place has also nice museums, restaurants and art galleries. We stopped at one art gallery. The owner was trying to sell us paintings of more than 100 000 dollars. There was paintings of a lady artist from Saskatchewan...not cheap either.
Ward wanted to visit some of the historical sites while I spend more time on the South Beach at the end of Duval street. Ward visited the house of Hemingway now a museum.
We enjoyed to sit at restaurants, cafes and bars. The food is excellent. We missed Sloppy Joe's the favorite hangout of Hemingway. We felt sad leaving this maazing town one of my favorite town in Florida.
