Key West Gardens

As part of the Outer Reef Rendezvous, we had a wonderful opportunity to see a part of Key West that we had not seen before. Explore some of the nooks and crannies off the beaten path and off of the tourist area of Duval Street.

This was and the ones that follow were from Ernest Hemingway's house and the beautiful gardens. 

For years a big industry was shipwrecks and salvage until more modern navigational aids were put in place. This influenced the architectural features of the homes for that period and here is a great example of hand carved ships wheels at the top of the trim of the second floor.

We want to give a special thanks to the Outer Reef Staff:  Jeff, Colleen, Walt, Dave, Danny and Katie for their hard work in making this such a fun event. Also a special thanks to Nancy back in the Ft Lauderdale office for her kindness and help.
