Key West

A wonderful way to start out the year was a week in Key West....leaving Oklahoma's 20 degrees freezing sleet and snow, and enjoying the refreshing upper 70 degrees sunny weath in the Key's. Key West is a charming four-mile island located 150 miles out in the ocean where it meets the Gulf of Mexico. Clear Caribbean waters and lifestyle, yet still America.

Key West, now known as a tourist aspect, The Conch Republic is a micronation of the Florida Keys, created after some residents of Key West staged a secession from the United States of America as a "tongue-in-cheek" protest. in the early 1980's.
Visitors may be surprised to find chickens roaming the streets of Key West. Many consider the birds a part of Key West's history and character.

Every house in Key West is truly unique. This is because like everything in Key West, diversity reigns
Restored cigar-makers' cottages and gingerbread-trimmed Victorian mansions stand side by side on Key West's narrow streets, creating an intriguing architectural fusion in the historic Old Town district.
A ritual on Key West: everyday at dusk visitors gather at this seaside spot to watch the spectacular sunset and enjoy lively street performances.

Of course, my favorite is the Cat Man
a beautiful sunset with music playing and all merry people around... what a vacation.
