429--Key West: Camping in the Florida Keys
@ CherieSpotting     Feb 26 2009 - 06:37 PST
cherie writes: This is a collection of photos Iíve taken over the past two weeks in the Florida Keys. Sure there are incredible sunsets, but the Keys also has charming architecture, white sand beaches, puffy clouds, waterfront campsites, funky dogs, feral chickens, wild art, romantic tallships and courageous street performers on Mallory Square.

Key West is more than just a strip of bars on Duval Street. If you explore the nooks and crannies of the island, youíll find the gems like Moís (at 1116 White St.), a local Haitian restaurant where the food is so heavenly it canít be described in words. A group of friends had dinner at Moís and we were so enchanted with the food, we got up and danced around the restaurant. Dancing is always allowed in Key West!
