Another Key West Chair NOT In Key West!

Two months ago I wrote a blog about a Key West painted chair that wasn’t in Key West located on Cow Key just outside Key West by only a half mile. Well guess what? I’ve found one even further away, 102 miles away to be exact! Believe me, there’s a number of these type of BIG chair photo-ops located throughout the Florida Keys. This is unique only in the sense that it says ‘Key West’ which makes a great addition to any vacation photo album. There’s just one tiny itty-bitty problem… it’s NOT located in KEY WEST!  It’s still a great photo! You can find this Key West wannabe photo-op ‘Big...

Key West’s Lost African Cemetery Is Found

Lost African Cemetery This is one of only two known African cemeteries in the Western Hemisphere. Not  slaves, it’s  a burial ground at Florida’s southernmost point containing 294 actual burials which were lost for 141 years.

A Real Key West RV

Key West RV Would you do this to promote your hometown? They did! It’s time to go RV’ing… ok, RV hunting! This is one of those things that I had no idea of seeing or even looking for, we cruised right by this while on one of our day-long cycling trips around Key West. As we peddled by I began laughing and immediately turned around whipping out my 6″ Cannon… (That’s my camera!) not missing an opportunity for a uniquely different type of photo that most don’t have. This hometown promoting RV can be found near the corner of Vernon Ave. & Waddell Ave. ...

Pirate Related Street Names (part 2)

As you know, I love driving into sub-divisions and seeing theme-named streets! Pulling into this one made me smile being a history buff remembering the stories of Pirates in movies and literature.

Treasure Chest: Buried treasure is an important part of the popular beliefs surrounding pirates. According to popular conception, often buried their stolen fortunes in remote places, intending to...
