Had the most wonderful time at the Key West Butterfly Center. Though their greenhouse was even more humid then the outside Florida weather the sweat was well worth it to be surrounded by 75 different species of butterflies flying around you. One even landed on my hand and hung out there for about 2 minutes. Unfortunately it was with my right camera hand so no shots were taken but it was a highlight. Took tons of photos below are some. Then ventured to get a bit of the ocean and water fix before heading back into the car to drive out of the keys. The water is still amazing in color. Stopped for a quick stretch break along Anne's Beach before returning to the car to go to South Beach - Miami Beach. Had a nice evening walking around and looking at the neon lite art deco buildings.
A must go to if you are in Key West. Had the best of time and could of bought out the entire gift shop.
They also had different species of birds and some turtles along with a variety of plants.
Just love the line quality of this vibrant plant.

Headed out of the Keys. Some pictures taken at 50 mph.
Love how the colors change when sand recedes into ocean.
Saw a couple of wind surfers off an island all by themselves. They were fun to watch as we passed by them.
Amazing waters that are also so clear at the beaches.
Building reflections in a building in Miami.
Off to South Beach and almost no hotel room. First time we have run into not having reservations as a problem for a room. With help from family via cell phones and checking in with as many different hotels as possible finally found a semi-affordable room for the night.
