Rita and I returned today from a weeklong excursion to the southern tip of the U.S. Travel to Savannah by Saturn to Miami by Amtrak to Key West by Shuttle to Tortugas by Ferry and return by same. Among the highlights, our ferry served to escort 17 new Cuban arrivals from Fort Jefferson, Dry Tortugas to Key West. Their boat, on which they floated for two days, was tiny and patched together. Below are two photos: one shows their boat, as viewed from inside Fort Jefferson; the other shows a group of them (and me, a NPS law enforcement officer and another tourist) on our ferry for the return ride.
