We walked to the Southernmost point in the continental USA after breakfast to get this iconic picture. It was only .6 miles from where we are staying. We did a little shopping and then went back to the guesthouse to get ready for our plane trip on Seaplane Charter to Dry Tortugas National Park. Seeing this park was our whole reason for coming to Key West. I was just picking up my phone to get and Uber to the airport when the Seaplane Company called and cancelled our trip because of high winds. Within 10 minutes after their call, it started raining very hard and the winds were blowing hard. It rained that way for over 1 1/2 hours and then it drying up and was nice the rest of the day.k.
We walked down to Wendy’s for lunch and then spent the afternoon walking through the different shops up and down Duval Street.
We also took a wonderful tour of The Little White House. It was built in 1890 as quarters for Navy officers, the Little White House was later used by American Presidents William Taft, Harry S. Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Truman used the facility as a vacation home and functioning White House between 1946 and 1952.National legislation was drafted and official government business was conducted daily from the site. Perhaps the most important of these actions occurred on December 5, 1951, when Truman enacted a Civil Rights Executive Order requiring the federal contractors to hire minorities. The house is considered the birthplace of the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Air Force.
This decoration was made from sponge, shell (the eyes) and animal bones (the teeth).
Roosters are everywhere in Key West.
We ate dinner at the Viva Argentinian Steakhouse which is right beside where we are staying at the Wicker Guesthouse.
