Moat looking south

Fort Jefferson, Dry Tortugas National Park

This is my entry for Reflection Hunters 107 #reflections hosted by the Shadow Hunters community and @olgavita. Fort Jefferson was built in the 1800's and has a moat which makes perfect reflections 😍


The Dry Tortugas are 70 miles west of Key West, Florida and 90 miles north of Havana, Cuba.

Moat looking north

Its quite a trip to get there so its one of the least frequently visited National Parks. Miami to Key West is 2.5-3 hours by car unfortunately mostly on two lane highways with almost no passing zones so you follow the same idiot all the way 😁 Then its a 2.5 hour ferry ride from Key West to Dry Tortuga. There are also some float planes and private boats that go out to the park. In fact we met a couple that sailed all the way from Maine and it took them 6 months so I guess I shouldn't complain.

We were fortunate enough to get one of the 10 campsites on the key for 2 nights. Its primitive camping but well worth it. I say fortunate but we reserved the spot over 1 year ago lol. I posted my favorite sunrise and sunset photos and a picture of the island in an earlier post Sunrise photo Thanks for checking out my photos 🙂
