After leaving Key West, we went to Dry Tortugas with the expectation of staying there during Irma.
We went ashore at Dry Tortugas even though deserted, and walked around Fort Jefferson, then prepped Meshugga to weather out Irma.

Walking around the Fort, there is a moat with an external walkway

Happy to find a marked Turtle Nest

Loads of Bird life. Peicans everywhere, Boobies, Noddies, Terns

Besides our huge anchor we ran a 100m thick rope to shore and tide it to the jetty pillars and concrete foundations
