Key West pictures

It took me a while but I posted some pictures from a trip to Key West, FL back in March. After driving over all 42 bridges that stitch the Overseas Highway together, I arrived in Key West to the sounds of “cock-a-doodle-dooooo” seemingly ringing out of every corner. Apparently it is against the law in Key West to harm or seize chickens and so they just hang out and multiply a lot. This could be a good or bad thing depending on whose point of view it is.

Note to self for future trips to the Keys: don’t go during spring break. It was hard to tell what there was more of, tourists or chickens. With it being the fun, easy-going, remote island that it is, I think it could be an even better place to hang out during mellower times.
