Trip to Key West....

We went to Key West today with the Kynastons. It is a 4 hour ride down and 4 hour ride back. We had told them we would like to do things where we would not have to do a lot of walking because of my back. We bought city tour train ride tickets online before we left so we could get $3 off of each one. They were $30 tickets. We had 3 deliveries to other missionaries to make on the way and spent 3 hours in Marathon, another one of the Keys with the 1st set of Elders. We found them fishing when we arrived at the apartment. This apartment is about 12 ft x 12 ft including bathroom and kitchen.
We had a little fun while having lunch at the ocean side. One side of the road is the Atlantic Ocean and the other side is the Gulf of Mexico.
Outside the chapel at Marathon.
We spent so long at Marathon that by the time we got to Key West we missed our train ride and lost our $54. We still had fun. We waited around for 2 hours to watch the sunset on the ocean and just as it was going down, the clouds covered the sun and we didn’t get a very good picture. The missionaries didn’t think we were coming so they had ordered a pizza and eaten just before we got there. Then the missionaries had an 8 pm appointment so we didn’t have time to take them to dinner after the sunset. We arrived home about 12:35 a.m.
