Way back in January, we flew down to Miami and drove from there to Key West. We got into Key West around 3pm and headed down to the Conch Republic (we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott which has a free shuttle downtown Key West, dropping you off in front of the Conch Republic).
While on the shuttle, some of the other guests tipped us off to a free Key West event. Tarpon feeding. For those of you that don't know, tarpon are giant fish.
We gathered behind the conch republic on a chilly Friday afternoon around 4pm to see the tarpon feeding. (as you can see, we were not the only ones lined up to see tarpon feeding.)
Alas, it must have been too cold for the tarpon. Instead, 30 or so pelicans swooped in to eat the food. These photos are for all you pelican lovers out there.
Even though we didn't see tarpon, watching all the pelicans feed was pretty interesting.
