During our trip to The Keys we spent one day in Key West. It was an intense day of relentless overstimulation. Key West is an enticing mix of vintage and modern, religious and secular, natural and man-made.

A pair of sunglasses forgotten in a tree.
The Hemingway House.
The Grotto behind The Basilica of St. Mary Star of The Sea. It was built out of local rocks in 1922 by Sister Gabriel to serve as protection from the devastation of hurricanes. Since its constuction there has been no major hurricane that has hit The Keys.
Stunning trees growing in front of The Harvey Government Center.
Disco ball in the trees.
White chocolate covered wine glass at Better Than Sex. By far the best thing about the meal was listening to my mom and Sue giggle over the names of the desserts and suggestive pictures on the walls. I'm certain I saw a glimps of what they were like in high school.
The crowd gathering to watch the sunset at Mallory Square.
