killing a last afternoon in key west

It's my last few minutes here in Key West... my two buddies left this morning for home so I had an afternoon to kill on my own. I went over to Hemingway's House but I suddenly found myself wanting to be away from tourists and not be lumped in with em. So I turned around and headed through the neighborhoods. My camera broke last night in that the viewfinder screen shows no image anymore - it forced me to take a lot of blind pictures, which ended up turning out pretty well. I grabbed a Cuban sandwich at a corner market... I had some buffalo shrimp and beer at a raw bar... It felt so good to wander through the real neighborhoods and get to be here. I soaked in the last of the sun and the flora and the flavor. I love this place.
