Mile “0” – Key West

Here is what we woke up to for 3 mornings.  The best spot at our not so desolate campsite.

Key West is an island at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys and home to the southernmost point in the Continental United States.  The island is about 90 miles (140 km) from Cuba.

I think the rules have changed since then – but hang in there!

Here are some photos taken yesterday around the city.

Typical Gulf/Caribbean style housing.

Conch, Coconut Gulf Shrimp & a Key Lime Margaritas for lunch at Willie T’s. People sure know how to throw their money around.

Vancouver get with the program – this is so much better than coffee.

Only here – not even in Mexico do they serve Tequila soup.

Roosters rule the roost here – they’re literally everywhere.

I thought riding without helmets is illegal.

Duval St. is Key West’s equivalent to Boubon St. in New Orleans.

How much are the doggy’s in the window?  They got startled with JiaJia barked at them.

You are barking up the wrong tree here fella!

We are all equally cool in this town.

Until later……………………..gotta go have lunch (maybe a conch salad?) and another margarita.  This time at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville – the gold standard for margarita’s but i’ll let you know in tomorrow’s post.
