Goodbye Key West!
Three days after arriving, we’re leaving Key West and heading for Marathon (about 40 miles up the keys).
Key West is a great stop over point after crossing the gulf. Here, we were able to decompress a bit in the local bars and restaurants. Tug, Michelle, and I enjoyed walking around the city and taking in the sights and local color.
Key West is a bit like New Orleans, without the sleeze and smell of stale beer. It’s a fun party town with clear water, fresh ocean breezes, sunburned tourists, and eclectic residents. We love it – for a few days at a time!
Now it’s time to head north and prepare to cross the Gulf Stream and enter the Bahamas.
