Dry Tortugas

Now, this is an amazing place. For those of you who remember, we were planning to come here directly from Port Aransas, a 5 to 8-day crossing of the Gulf of Mexico. A solid arctic storm persuaded us to change course back then, whence our entire trajectory changed too. We finally keep our promise to visit this desolate place. Wonderfully weird in it’s desolation yet fully built-up state, Ft Jefferson is a remnant of another era. It’s like finding Yo-Yo Ma’s latest on an 8-track cartridge. We enjoy the water, the brickwork and the final rest before our upcoming three day crossing to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
