Day One-Key West, FL

Land Ho! (This might be my favorite William picture of all time!)
The port in Key West.

We arrived in Key West and spent the day wandering around the island. We took in the original Margaritaville, Sloppy Joe's bar, the Truman summer White house, Ernest Hemmingway's home, the beach where Tennessee Williams used to write and the southern most point in the continental United States. In other words, we did that sucker up Griswald style! Dad got a little cranky by the end of the day! Thank God for booze! Dad was also battling a serious bout of nicotine withdrawal and was not on his best behavior! Still, we managed to have a great time shopping and so forth. We would all love to go back and spend some more time there!

The family at the southern-most point in the continental United States. As you can see, Will showed his excitement by collapsing asleep! I think that comes from Grandpa Dave?
Amie and Bill as we were docking.

World Famous!

Taylor was psyched to see this sign!
