New Thing: See The Sunset In Key West
Each year I make a list of new things I want to try; it’s part of how I live my life on purpose. Some of these new things are exciting, many are terribly mundane.
I would like to make the argument that the world can be divided into two groups of people:
1. People who listen with curiosity and an open mind when they hear everyone raving about something.
2. Curmugeons and a-holes (like me) who steadfastly ignore things till it’s about five years after the fact and then we see what all the fuss is about.
Sometimes I totally get what all that fuss is about. I agree with the piles of tourists, the million awards, the critical acclaim.
Lolita? Loved it.
Dollywood? There’s a reason a bajillion people go there every year.
Sending something to Post Secret? Those million readers know what’s up.
And then there are those much-lauded experiences/books/movies/foods that leave you a bit “meh-y.” A bit “Well, that was nice
but I’m not quite sure it’s worth all the hubbub.” (I’m looking at you, five-day cleanse
I’m afraid the sunset in Key West falls under this heading, friends.
And it’s totally lovely!
(But I’m pretty sure it’s exactly as lovely as any sunset viewed from any coast, ever.)
Why You Really Do Need to See the Sunset in Key West
Just for comparison sake, here are four sunset photos from South Dakota, Tennessee, Key West, and Maine. They’re all pretty nice, right?
Of course, there are piles of amazing things to do in Key West.
Key West is a fascinating, gorgeous place and the sunsets are quite nice.
But I’d suggest making them one of many reasons you go there.
What tourist attractions and travel destinations have left you a bit shrug-y?
