The original Spanish name of idyllic Key West, Florida where we finally found the sun yesterday was Cayo Hueso.
As our prebooked kayaking tour was scheduled in the afternoon we were able to join the "Harry Truman tour" in the morning then grab a quick bite before our adventure. Key West is one of our favourite ports and we were thrilled that we could take full advantage of our time there. I felt sorry for the people on the Carnival Imagination that was also in Port; they only had a few hours to experience this lovely island.
Our pictures tell the story of our day.
