What's not to love about Key West? Warm sunshine, clear waters, soft sand...and all the action on Duval Street in the evening! Not to mention those amazing sunsets over the calm water of the the Gulf of Mexico...best observed while sipping an exotic adult beverage on the Pier or while on a sunset music cruise!
After a wonderful five day stay at Bahama House with two of my very best friends, it was time to head back to landlocked Ohio. Since we had met up in Fort Lauderdale and driven the Keys to our destination, I had no prior experience with Key West International Airport. I knew it would be small, but I had no idea what an artistic treat it was going to be for this art loving traveler! From the time I entered the lobby to check in with Spirit Airlines until I reached my departure gate, I was delighted by artwork everywhere I looked! All of it was amazing, but I think my favorites were the photo-realistic wall paintings tucked into unexpected corners. And who would have thought...Key West International has the ONLY airport beach in the world! Check it out in the slideshow below!
This was a fabulous vacation for an art loving traveler, but there's more to come! In my next post, I'll fill you in on my art filled day at the Hemingway House and a chance meeting with a local artist...one more lovely surprise at Key West International Airport!
