    One of the serendipitous discoveries during our vacation was the Key West Nature Preserve, which has two entrances on Atlantic Blvd., and was a beautiful, short, scenic walk. Of course, Boyd found it while going out to bird-watch, and had to bring me back to see it. The boardwalk trail is very nice, and I loved the little turn-out to the mangrove swamp - we saw several birds there, and it was just beautiful!

    The trail continues to the beach - an undeveloped and quiet section of oceanfront which was perfect for bird watching and a romantic stroll, but not so much for swimming or laying out. The best part about this little slice of heaven in Key West (a sentence which is somewhat redundant...) is that there is no admission - it is FREE! Besides the birds, we saw lots of lizards and butterflies, so kids would probably enjoy it as well.

    Its history is under-told. The appreciation of its very unique culture. Key West has been taken over by the tourists and the opertunists and you now have to look for what was the old city.
    Watch the sun. A burn ruins your trip.
