We spent a few nights at the Amoray dive resort in Key Largo. Mike did indeed make his 700th dive! Then we were off to Key West.

Lots of iguanas hang around down here in the keys! You would think they like the weather or something!
|Sunset from Mallory Square, Key West|
|yep, they have a winery down here!|

|lots of great music in every bar|
|Christmas tree in Key West! Love the tree topper:)|
|we flew 500 ft over crystal clear waters and it was amazing! Now getting ready to land on the water at the Dry Tortugas!|
|frigate birds every where, could not get a good pic :(|
|Mike, the birthday boy, got to sit in the cockpit with the pilot;)|
|our landing on the water was no worse than some we have experienced on dry land|
|Fort Jefferson actually has full time park rangers that live out here|
|our plane will be back to pick us up in 3 hours|
the water was warm and we hoped to have an enjoyable time until we started running into plate sized jelly fish! We had to get out after about 1/2 hour. A couple members of our group did, unfortunately, get stung.
Never know about these things!
|our ride back approaches the beach|
|on the return you can clearly see an old wreck below the surface. we also saw turtles and maybe sharks!|
|awesome trip in spite of jellyfish!!|
