Wandering around downtown I was thinking about how people get around in Key West. Years ago I was getting on my scooter on Duval Street and some loud person was telling out of town friends that all you need to get around in Key West is a scooter. Which strictly speaking is not true if you have any desire to go anywhere out of town...but there are lots of them parked everywhere and for free, so they are a good deal.
There are bike racks all over the place and they are often filled with bicycles that to all intents and purposes appear abandoned, rusty, flat tires, missing seats and stuff like that. And some sport fancy luggage racks, fresh from the winery:
I noticed fancy new street painting in front of the Half Shell Raw bar. Cheyenne seemed intent on inspecting it but that's just how she walks:
The other way to get around, nit surprisingly is by dinghy. For people who live across the water from Key West the dinghy docks at Key West Bight near Turtle Kraals are indispensable. They pay a small fee by the day week or month and have a relatively safe place to leave their boats:
Don't do what locals do, is what I keep telling visitors, as you never know what privileges they have that you don't. Case in point:
Frankly I think walking is one of the best ways to get around town as you will see more and be truly free of traffic constraints.
