On Friday, we drove about 2 hours down to Key West! We walked around for a few hours taking in all that Key West has to offer...it's a beautiful city!
After walking around for awhile, we drove to their local airport and boarded this:
We took a 45 minute sea plane ride to Dry Tortugas, which is a group of islands at the end of the Florida Keys. The sea plane ride was so cool! I was afraid it would be too small for my chlosterphobic self but other than it being blazing hot, it was pretty fun! The view was amazing & the pilot told us lots of awesome facts about things we saw on the way. The water was CRYSTAL clear blue, so pretty! It was absolutely GORGEOUS! We snorkeled for about 2 hours, walked around the island, and took it all in while we could.
The island has a huge brick structure surrounding it with a courtyard in the middle, and a moat around the outside. They used to keep prisoners here!
Before we boarded the plane back to Key West!!
That pretty much wraps up our first week as The Lathams! On Saturday we just hung out by the pool til it was time to drive to the Ft. Lauderdale airport and head home. I am already begging Ty to go back! It was amazing!
