Tuesday Travel – Florida

Key West, Florida is the southernmost point in the continent of USA. We had a chance to visit and it turned out to be a trip that enhanced our knowledge and insight.

This is the picture of Ernest Hemingway’s fishing boat named Pilar. Hemingway regularly fished off the boat in the waters of Key West, Florida. Several of Hemingway’s books were influenced by time spent on the boat, most notably, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream.

The winter White House of President Harry S. Truman. It was his white house away from the White House. Today it is a public Key West museum.

Successful fishing trip! Many birds around were waiting for the scraps from cleaning the fish.

Roosters were roaming on the walls and sidewalks. Iguanas and human shared the same right crossing the street.

My husband stood in front the Tower Cam and called his friend in California. His friend logged on the website, saw him on live-camera and conversed on the phone!
