Back to some visual inspiration from our Florida trip! After our first night on Duck Key, we drove down to Key West for two nights. This allowed us one day to wander (sweating a lot…it was over 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity) in downtown Key West and one day for a snorkeling trip to the Dry Tortugas. The one thing I absolutely wanted to do was visit the Hemingway house, where I promptly fell in love with the acid green shutters! The house is on the second highest bit of land on Key West, a little over 20 feet above sea level!
Of course, one of the reasons I wanted to go is the cats. We have a polydactyl, which means many-toed cat. They are reasonably common here in Maine as well as on Key West. Most cats have 18 toes (four per foot, plus dew-claws on two feet). Thumper has 26 toes–basically a foot and a half per leg!
Coming soon: our trip to the Dry Tortugas… yes, it is possible to go beyond the end of the Key West…keep going west!
