Florida Trip - Day 4: Key West

We were just 90 miles to Cuba!

We decided the 4th day in Key West to be a fun play day. And we picked 2 water activities to do during the day time. The first one was parasailing. We took the 9AM hotel shuttle bus and arrived in downtown around 9:20AM. After we took off, we took a short walk to the harbor and waited for the 10AM boat to take us out to parasail.
Although you may be afraid of the height up in the sky, however, parasailing is highly recommended if you really want to enjoy the view above the sea and the chill with the breeze over the sea. The crew staff would give you a life jacket just in case and you would be fine even if you drop into the water and cannot swim. The captain would change the speed of the boat which drags the parachute from time to time so that the parachute will go up and down constantly. Trust me, this is really fun!

When the parasailing was done, we treated ourselves a big brunch! 

Crab cake benedicts
banana foster French toast
The restaurant we had our brunch is called Bagatelle on the Duval Street. It is highly recommended!

In the afternoon, we sailed on the boat and got into the sea again to snorkel!

Key West is also well known by its breathtaking sunset. 

 On the last night we were in Key West, we picked a seafood restaurant called Half Shell Raw Bar. And it is highly recommended!!!

As we finished the 4th day of our trip, we looked forward to take a bus going back to Miami via the Overseas Highway - US Highway 1.
