Mornings start early along the waterfront in Key West.The predawn boarding call aboard the Yankee Freedom ferry is met with breakfast as we set our sights west to a cluster of Florida islands even farther west than Key West.”Welcome aboard,” snaps the public address system, as folks hunker down for the two-hour ride across turquoise blue waters. About 70 miles west of Key West awaits Garden Key in the Dry Tortugas, home to Fort Jefferson.”It rivals Yosemite, Yellowstone and the big parks,” Park Manager Glenn Simpson said.Accessible only by boat or seaplane, this cluster of islands predates the Civil War.
