Here's Majesty of the Seas all tied up in downtown Key West, Florida. This is the only port where I can personally put mail into a US mail box so I walked over to the post office to mail some cards and letters. These are images I took along the way.
There are beautiful flowers in Key West year round.
It's not a totally sharp image, but in the center is a little bird that moved enough in the palm fronds that I spotted it quickly.
I walked through the Truman Complex out to Whitehead Street. The Truman Complex includes the Little White House named and used by former President Harry Truman. Although I am not a fan of President Truman, I am a fan of history. My honey and I visited the Little White House when we first came to Key West aboard Majesty about six years ago. No photography of the building itself is allowed because it is still available for use by sitting presidents. When we took the tour the most recent president who had used it was President Clinton. The Truman Complex is adjacent to the U.S. Navy Base.
There are beautiful flowers everywhere.
This white picket fence behind the flowers surrounds rental property inside the Truman Complex.
...in every shade of every color.
This is a residence on Whitehead Street, just on the other side of the street from the Truman Complex.
Here comes the Conch Train. This is one way to see Key West. I've done this at the insistence of someone cruising with me once, but I prefer to walk. If you have problems walking long distances, though, this is a fun way to see a good part of Old Key West.
This Banyan tree is on the corner outside the post office. I went inside and mailed my cards and letters, then headed back to the ship.
These flowers seem to be escaping the fence on Whitehead Street.
And, the last image for today is the trolley which is another way for tourists to see Key West.
Right after I took this one my cell phone rang and I chatted with my daughter while walking back to the ship. That's another advantage of being in U.S. ports: we have Verizon cell phone service throughout the U.S. without any international charges.
I hope you've enjoyed the images taken while walking to and from the Key West Post Office. :)
