Everyone's Travel Club continues chronicling our kayaking travels to Key West, Florida. Part 4 picks up in Key West. After a little con leche coffee in the morning, I walked 10 minutes from our inn located in Old Town and found a nice little spot to put our single Innova Safari kayak together and launch (it's right next to the Southernmost House Hotel).
I paddled East/NorthEast towards White Street Pier. The water was pretty shallow, I just had to be careful of old dock posts underwater. The tide was up so I had to go around (rather than under, which you're not technically supposed to do) a lot of the hotel docks and piers.
After the morning trip, Amber and I walked over to the Key West Cemetery.
How cool is this place?
Next we toured (on foot...the car has been parked ever since we arrived at Key West) Schooner Wharf, sunset cruise anyone?
OK, that was a bit of a joke - this is a very cool spot, however, you do have a few captains trying to get you on their next cruise. They are actually pretty nice and not too obtrusive. We took a sunset cruise a couple years ago and highly recommend it.
Finally, we took the double kayak out around sunset. The tide was out, we were farther South than the Southernmost buoy and the water was beautiful. Check back to the blog for Part 5, sunken ships and illegal dumping (not by us)!
