THE SUNSET PARTY IN KEY WEST

Finally, as promised, here are a few “sunset” photos from Key West. [After two days, this post will be dated so that it will move down and take its place in order with the other Key West posts.]

The sunsets are spectacular in Key West and crowds gather each night at Mallory Square as if the sun were a magnet drawing them against their will. Sword swallowers, fire-eaters, jugglers, magicians, and one-man bands all frantically vie for the crowd’s extra change, because they know as soon as the sun sets, the crowd disperses back toward Duval and Whitehead Streets (and side streets along the way) to begin the “Duval Crawl” toward the sunrise!

A sunset cruise, on one of the boats like offered by Fury or Southernmost Sailing is a perfect way to get out on the water and even become part of hundreds of tourist sunset photos! Usually there is wine, beer, and champagne included in the price of the 2-hour tours.

When the sun gets low where you live, just think about the party that is just beginning in Key West every night!

If I see THIS when the sun gets low where I live, I will definitely have a major problem on hand! Probably WOULD be a good time for a party, though!

Beautiful. Right now with our freezing weather I could do with a trip to a tropical isle.
