Key West in sight
As we approached Key west the first thing we saw was the giant cruise ships which almost daily visit Key West.
You can see how they dwarf the high rise condos to the right of them.
We arrived in Key West on Monday March the 19th. That evening we welcomed aboard Herman and Frea. The next day we took a tour of Key west, and visited amongst other sites the Ernest Hemingway house. Here in Key West he did most of his writing.
We left Key West on Wednesday morning on route to Marathon. The winds were blowing quite hard, and we encountered seas of 6 to 8 feet. The Le reve took them in stride, and we arrived in Marathon around 3.30 pm.
