|No idea what type of tree this is but it is huge! |
We visited the Mel Fisher Treasure Museum which was so fascinating. He spent 16 years finding and bringing up the wrecks of two Spanish galleons that sunk, full of gold and silver, just off of Key West in the 1600's. We saw real doubloons and pieces of eight, huge silver bars and ingots of gold stamped with their governmental taxation stamps. We also saw many artifacts rescued from the bottom that survived amazingly well, like plates and silverware, daggers, rapiers, cannons and shot.
After the museum we had an outdoor supper of snapper (me), mahi mahi (the boys) and my Montana man had a steak! Of course, we had Key Lime Pie for dessert and my youngest son had fried banana cheesecake. I'm not sure I liked it but it was definitely different. Then we walked to the southernmost point in the United States and watched the sunset which was very beautiful.

The boys played in the water for quite awhile after sunset, even though the water was quite cold. They didn't seem to mind!
Since I was in a "color" frame of mind after yesterday's blog I took a lot of photos trying to capture local colors. I don't know what these blooms are except that I believe the last one is a type of orchid someone grafted into the branch of a tree. It was gorgeous, just glowing in the dark in someone's yard. Feel free to let me know what the rest of them might be; also, they are actually tree blooms, not flower blooms.
