The best kinds of adventures are those unplanned - the ones that unfold organically before you with each turn. On Sunday Benedict and I decided to make the four hour drive from New Orleans to Vortex Springs in northern Florida. We've been talking about snorkeling for ages and decided just to head out for a quick and easy trip. Well, after a day at the springs we thought, "Why not just keep driving?" And thus began our Key West adventure. Florida is a much longer state that you might initially think and once you leave the main land, you still have three hours to the tip of the keys. But it is undoubtably worth it. From the blue water, to Ernest Hemmingway's six toed cats it is a trip I will never forget.
