If Key West is the "last resort," then nearby Dry Tortugas National Park might well be the lost resort.
Not that it's hard to find, what with the daily ferries, but the spectacle of Fort Jeffersonthe largest masonry
structure in the Americas, rising in the midst of hundreds of square miles of beautiful blue nothinggives the place an
air of mirage. It's Brigadoon as a Jimmy Buffett tune.

releasing a rehabilitated sea turtle, climbing a lighthouse, skimming the surface of a coral dream.
