Visit to Key West Islands on 7 and 9 Sep-2015


Key west Island One of America’s most unique motor journeys, the scenic 110-mile Overseas Highway combines ocean views, 42 bridges, natural wonders and history like no other place. Each region of the Keys has its own unique character, worlds away from big cities and theme parks.

Earnest Hemingway, Key West Island lived in this unique property. He was one of America’s most honored and respected authors. Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote here for more than ten years. He was author of the novel ‘Old Man and Sea (1952) – A Nobel prize winner in literature in 1954.  Reminded me of my school days we read this novel as a non-detail in the 8th standard.

We all went deep for Coral_reef into North Atlantic Ocean in Gulf of Mexico for snorkeling.  Coral_reef is an underwater ecosystem characterized by reef-building corals. Reefs are formed of colonies of coral polyps held together by calcium carbonate. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, whose polyps cluster in groups. It was life time experience to see the coral life. The undisturbed corals took me into the breath stopping world and see the nature which was not in my dreams remotely. Some what curious, some what fearful by watching the life under water.

What a fantastic tour which was marked by some special experiences. what a travel from mainland Florida to Key West Islands thorough long and long many connecting bridges, mysterious coral life, funny evening, Earnest Hemingway’s memories…..
