Although the day was warm, the
water was just a bit on the cold side. It was nice to dry off,

(She did have an excuse--her jellyfish sting would feel better in the
salt water.) Anna almost joined her, but tricked her at the last
They then took us out kayaking around a mangrove island in small groups.
Shirin and Anna had signed up for
parasailing early the next morning, just before they had to leave Key
West. Dawn and I tagged along to watch, and--big surprise
here--ended up getting enlisted to go up as well. It was
incredible, and much calmer than we'd imagined. We compared it
to riding in a hot air balloon.

Even though we were just a little
It was worth it, though.
Lots of people in Key West rented scooters
to get around. We did too, for a day. Susie demonstrated
the art of rolling over the handlebars and landing on your feet--or,
at least, landing on your Ace bandage.
Finally, we had to make it a point to stop
at this popular picture spot before we left.
