Though he didn’t quite make it in time for the Hemmingway look-alike contest, Dr. Jack Dillenberg did take time to be away physically from the office using Key West as a base for his spring break adventures, while staying virtually connected.
His time away included a boat journey to the Dry Tortugas National Park to see the extraordinary Fort Jefferson built with 16 million bricks in the mid-1800’s. Though never fully completed, the fort did function as a prison and housed the infamous Dr. Mudd, a convicted coconspirator to the assassination of President Lincoln. Today, the Dry Tortugas National Park serves as a wonderful bird sanctuary and home to numerous aquatic life.
Dr. Dillenberg also spent time with a friend from his dental school years, Dr. Fred Troxel. He visited his office in the Keys, hidden in the vernal foliage that makes this part of the U. S. so unique.
Key West is known for its festive lifestyle and outstanding culinary delights. It is the most southern tip of the United States, an island sitting only 90 miles from Cuba.
