Miami and Dry Tortuga

Making the most of a long weekend we travelled to Miami and down to the Florida Keys. Dan joined us from his winter wonderland of Colorado for a few days of warm sunshine.

We made a quick visit to Vizcaya in Miami to observe some 20th Century cultural imports. Well worth the visit and very interesting.

Vizcaya built in the early 1900s in the Italian style

From Key West to Dry Tortugas on a sea plane! Lots of fun.

Dry Tortugas - unfinished early American Castle at the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.
