Garden Key, Dry Tortugas National Park.
Halfway between Florida and Cuba, sitting on the crystal clear Gulf of Mexico water, seven small islands emerge above sea level are known as Dry Tortugas National Park. The park headquarter, ferry dock and camping sites all locate at Garden Key, where Fort Jefferson stands as the largest masonry fortress in the Western Hemisphere. There’s about 100 feet between the wall of this haunting castle and the beach, and that was our camp site.
