Turtle in Paradise Chapter 15

Just how far is "halfway to Cuba?" Key West is marked A, and Havana, Cuba is marked B. It doesn't look to far on here, but it is 90 miles from Key West to Havana.  Halfway would be 45 miles away and in the middle of the ocean.

Ever since the first chapter, Turtle and her mother have talked about getting "The Bellewood," a cottage style house they were going to order.  Believe it or not, you really could order a house through a catalog.  And believe it or not, you really could order the Bellewood.  Here's the original ad that Turtle talks about, and it's word for word. "The 'Bellewood' is another happy combination of a well-laid-out floor plan with a modern attractive exterior.  The design is an adaptation of a small English cottage."  Do you see that in the ad?
