DAY 3 in Key West


Here we are, still tooling around Key West in this little golf cart. This photo is outside a little boutique I loved called Beseme Mucho.



We seem to find a lighthouse wherever we go. This is the 1847 Lighthouse. "One of the oldest Florida lights, dating to 1847, and displaying the original Fresnel lens. Walk up 88 steep steps to the top of the conical brick lighthouse for a grand view of Old Town. The Key West Art and Histrical Society impeccably restored both the Keepers Cottage and Lighthouse in the 1990s."



One of the garden paths at the Hemingway House.


Southernmost House - "Perhaps Key West's most elegant tribute to grandeur, circa 1905, is a treasure" Now it is an historical museum.



This interesting garden gate caught my eye. Simple, but creative!




Two Friends Patio Restaurant...we just had to have one last fantastic meal. The patio is just dripping with this and that. Lots to see while we ate breakfast.



I was so taken with this house that I took about 8 photos. Then I saw a photo very like one I took in the Biking and Walking guide. Too bad I didn't learn the history while we were there.



This huge sculpture "God Bless America" is by Seward Johnson, Jr. and is outside the Old Customs House Museum. The web cam by www.kwahs.org is pointed right at passers-by.



The huge Kapok tree at the Monroe County Courthouse. The wood from this kind of tree was used to make life jackets for our sailors during WWII.
