Florida Keys Adventure - Day 6

Day 6 was supposed to be nice and simple: get up, drive from Key West to Miami, get on the airplane, and return to normal life. Alas, it wasn't meant to be that simple. At US 1 mile marker 15 (we started at mile marker 0) we hit a traffic jam. Turned out, there was a massive accident which ate up our 1 hour buffer time. (Could have been much worse - traffic was effected for 4 hours). Combine that with the fact that apparently Key West drivers like to go *under* the posted speed limit, and our rental car experience wasn't exactly super fast, and you could appreciate that we were getting a bit nervous about making our flight.

Luckily, TSA rescued us - they rushed us through security (apparently having a stroller and baby will get you this treatment) and we made the flight with no problems.

All in all, it was an outstanding vacation and I can't recommend the Keys enough. It's definitely a family friendly location, with plenty for our 21 month old to do.

A few photos from the last day: (1) the lighthouse we didn't get to climb. (2) Fluffy clouds as seen from our departing flight. (3) Photos taken while waiting for the big wreck to be dealt with - at least we had beautiful scenery while we waited around.
