IMG_1127May the record of this post show that we spent this day in Key West, one of the most originally exotic hangouts on earth.  The early-20th century architecture and sense of place reminds me strangely of Northshore towns like Mandeville and Covington where I grew up.  But that’s just a first impression.  After touring and walking the streets and waterfronts of this very walkable town and learning more about its fascinating history, it’s an American original.
