The Keys, Florida

Took a trip this month to the keys. We spent a day out at the tiny islands of Dry Tortugas, one of the most remote national parks in the country. It’s a two hour ferry ride from Key West, and we spent the day walking around the tiny island… and painting, of course.  The frigate birds are amazing. They don’t seem to ever touch down, just floating above our heads. There is a crocodile living there, though we didn’t see it. They are shy critters. The tiny island is an important stopping place for migrating birds to and from Cuba and South America to the U.S.. During those seasons, all kinds of birds can be found here taking a much needed rest.
