A lot of these pictures are of my trip into Key West alone to see all of the things Margie had no interest in. On one of our early trips into Key West we happened onto a sculpture park with about two dozen busts and descriptions of the influential people in Key West's history. I could feel Margie cringe when I began to look at them. It was decided then that I would come down some day on my own to see the historical parts of Key west and take the tours. So, on March 27th I toured the Key West Lighthouse, The Little White House, Ernest Hemingway's house, checked out Mallory Square a little, and read every damn one of the descriptions of the two dozen historical Key West figures in that sculpture park. I toured Hemingway's house in Cuba so I figured I should see the Key West one, too. I hope to do a Workamping gig at a lighthouse in the near future.
