After breakfast, we headed back to Old Town. Howard bought us tickets to ride the Old Town Trolley so that we could see the entire island without having to walk the entire day. While the canned jokes of Louie, the driver, were a bit much to take at times, it was interesting to learn more about Key West's history and culture. At one of the stops, we decided to buy a coconut to drink its water. It was just OK but I am glad I tried it. Who doesn't like drinking out of coconuts with a straw? We then went our separate way because Howard and Mary went to the Butterfly House and we went to the cemetery - slightly different experiences! We walked around quite a bit and then headed back to the hotel before going to Stock Island to a restaurant called Hogfish Bar and Grill. When we returned to the hotel, we were able to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. Since I do not often see the sun setting where I live, I find them truly spectacular when I can sit back and enjoy them.
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
