Monday's Postcard: St. Patrick's Day
A day late, but I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day! Ryan and I are enjoying our vacation in the Florida Keys. We toured Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas the other day and I have been having seafood every day. The Dry Tortugas are 70 miles away from Key West at the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico. A book by one of my favorite authors, Flashback by Nevada Barr, is set on Fort Jefferson. The mystery shifts between the site as a contemporary national park and as Fort Jefferson during the post-Civil War era.
