A visit to Dry Tortugas (70 miles off the coast of Key West) feels like a step back in time.  This remote park encompasses 100 miles of open water with 7 small islands, including Garden Key, home of the world famous and historic Fort Jefferson.  Using simple stitch techniques, this design takes you from the deep blue and aquamarine waters, to the moat wall and brick fort, up to a clear blue sky.  Rows of green represent the grass on the roof while carefully placed decreases hint at the hexagon shape of the fort.
