The human body is much like the ocean itself. The essence of life that courses through our veins is amazingly similar to seawater. Aquatic plant life and algae are rich in key vitamins, minerals, trace elements and salts required to sustain human life. It’s no wonder then that for millennia man has sought the comforting, healing energies of the ocean. Here on our little island of Key West we appreciate and honor the importance of the ocean--- it surrounds, sustains nurtures and nourishes us.
The very name conjures a heady elixir of adventure, fun, romance and relaxation. Ponce de Leon went looking for the Fountain of Youth in 1513 only to discover this seductive archipelago of dreamy tropical islands that today are called the Florida Keys. Since then these islands have been home to pirates and wreckers, spongers and sailors, dreamers and schemers, writers and romantics all of whom have left their indelible energies which are still evident today.
This is where the deep blue Atlantic meets the turquoise of the Gulf of Mexico at the gateway to the Caribbean. Sea, sun, sand, seaweed--all are part of this intimate, magical place.
