All Good Things Must End

Our vacation is winding down.
 We enjoyed it all,

The Ocean breezes

 The resident wildlife, both wild 

and not so wild.
(Our early morning alarm & balcony beggar)

 The street performers at Mallory Square, both feline

And human.
We found treasure on the beach

Sampled tasty seafood

And acted like silly tourists

 But now its time to sail away home!
So long Key West!

Sea Kayaking

One of the highlights of our visit to Key West was kayaking the Boca Chica Channel
which flowed to the sea.

We left Stock Island and paddled among the tangled branches of the mangroves.

 Our guide netted all kinds of sea creatures, like this horse conch.

 A skinny sea star

A fat sea star

 A slug-like sea hare that was sticky to hold.

And jelly fish.

 There were some interesting sights above the water too,
like this raft of comorants.

It was a fun day on the water.
