Sunset on Key West ruined by big boat

The sunsets at Mallory Square in Key West are known the world over for their beauty. Three years ago this week we got engaged even as we watched one beautifully put on its show. So we wanted to be sure to see one today after we arrived to Key West.

Too bad this big ass Norwegian Pearl cruise ship was in the way the whole time. We had some hope as it pulled away at 6:30. Maybe it would leave in time. But no, it slowly cruised out and then turned in place and then proceeded west, keeping large parts of the dock in its shadow and blocking the sunset as it went. Hundreds of feet long and many building stories tall, it was the dominant feature of the scenery. Maybe tomorrow.
