I was raised on a stoop. Up north, the front door and entrance to a home had some significance and presence. You don't see that much down here in South Florida, especially in our cookie cutter communities... BUT, since most of the original settlers down south in Key West were from the north, attention has been paid to the front door. So, to close the door on this weeks feature Key West Week and for this weeks Photos For Friday... I present to you...

The Doors of Key West...

Looks like this one
may have forgotten something...

One stoop to nowhere...

Although some were so colorful,
and my fave doors are these blue ones...
My fave house
was in Key Lime green...

And as the ad says
"Come visit Key West
you only have one life to live"...

I hope this series opened the door for you

for a new place to travel too...

Above is a cat named  
Key West Jake
(found on Facebook)
He looks JUST like our cat - Sephora!

For further reading on the history of Key West,
check out this site from Pineapple Press..

and here's the hookup for getting around town
(other than walking)

So come south and go west...
Come to KEY WEST!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
