This is Chelsea House, a great little bed and breakfast where we
stayed. This is the main house, and then there were separate
little cabins behind it, beside a nice small pool. It was the perfect
place to stay, within walking distance to Duval Street, and all the
main attractions.
One of our tour guides told us that Key West is the
largest preservation area of two story Victorian homes anywhere.
The oldest part of town burned early in the century because
the fire spread from roof to roof because the homes are so close
together. All of the homes are required now to have a tin
roof. The ceilings of the porches are painted blue because
it attracts the bees and wasps, and then they are killed in
the fan blades.
I really enjoyed walking in the neighborhoods in the mornings
and seeing all the quaint little homes.
