Key West
Last year's stop in Key West during our cruise really left us wanting to go back.  Nearly a year later, we were able to cash in some airline miles and hotel points to help make this trip possible.  In December of this year, we'll be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.  So in many ways, this trip was like extending part of our honeymoon from 10 years ago.  Scott was kind of sick then and we didn't know much about the island.  We had a little more time on this trip since we flew in.  As for spending time together as a couple, we both agreed this was our best vacation yet.  That's got us thinking about when we can get back to Key West again -- hopefully very soon!

Key West --here we come!!

A nice self portrait -- since we were traveling alone.
"Shower" at the Blue Heaven restaurant.
"There's a woman goin' crazy on Caroline Street.."  (a little Key West traditional photo for us).
Key West is well known for wild chicks -- this one is in a store.
This one is out with the family.
Of course, Key West sunsets are legendary.  This is a view from Mallory Square.
This is a view from the sunset cruise we took.
Buffy gets some air on the 70 ton, 65 foot catamaran.
Scott notices that the boat is powered by Yanmar -- Tuff Torq's parent company.
Oh, it is a lovely cruise.
Our "official" vacation photo taken by the boat crew.
Other boats out for the sunset.
Time to head back to shore.
The obligatory "Southernmost Point" picture.
A return trip to Hemingway's house finds a cat napping on one of the display cases.
We think there is a very similar photo of Buffy in this very spot from our honeymoon.
I'm guessing this setup can be used for marriage ceremonies at the house.
The gardens at Hemingway's house.  (This would be the view Jimmy Carter had when we spotted him here on our honeymoon trip).
A calico kitty trying to take it easy.
Seaside dining.
Meeting the legendary Captain Tony -- certainly a highlight of the trip!
Captain Tony signed this photo of himself with Jimmy Buffett in Detroit for us.  The Captain turns 90 in August of this year.
While he is no longer mayor and his body is becoming frail, I was impressed with how sharp his mind seemed to be.
