Key West Sunset

Key West Sunset

If you are looking to escape the real world, there is no better place than Key West, Florida. The Conch Republic, being the southernmost point in the United States, is a unique place where the pace of life slows down. If you have ever listened to early Jimmy Buffet songs, you get a feel for Key West. After a day of sand, sun, and surf, make your way down to Mallory Square for sunset. You will find many street performers who come out each evening, like this escape artist who slips his chains and straight jacket while hanging upside down. Following his act you can watch the sun escape over the horizon before you head out for a night of drinking on Duval Street. And if you want to escape reality, make your visit the week of Fantasy Fest.

  1. what a gorgeous view of the sunset!

  2. That sunset is gorgeous!

  3. Amazing! 😉

  4. I absolutely love Key West! It is really a special place. Too bad though about all the cruise ships. we used to go in the 80s before they came and it was much better at the pier. But it still is a magical place!

    • True but they aren’t there all the time. We are going to be on one of those cruise ships very soon. We are doing the trip up the Norwegian coast and through the fjords all the way up to Nordkapp. So I can rag on cruise ship passengers, since I am one. Enjoy your trip to India and I hope you get better before you have to leave.

      • Wow! That sounds fantastic!!!! I went to Bergen Norway 20 years ago when I was backpacking. It was so incredible. I bet your cruize will be amazing!!! Can’t wait to see all your picures!
