"Keys" To Warm Up


It was chilly in Key West for our first two days. Still very nice compared to our frigid New York winter. 



We toured the Hemingway home and museum, and I took the photo of the lighthouse from the second floor porch. 


I will miss our evening dips in the pool ;o)


Sunsets in Key West are celebrated every evening.


I loved the homes and their architecture.


Each morning, we were awakened at 6:15 a.m. by this guy. They are everywhere in Key West. It wasn't a huge issue since we were in paradise.


We were lucky as the majority of the week was sunshine and 80. As soon as I get caught up from being away, I'll be back to blogging ;o)



Thank you for stopping by!

  8. I'm checking the pics out again and see that you put the time the rooster woke you! That just gave you more time to enjoy the outdoors. Your pics are postcard worthy and are making me long for the beach.

  11. Hope you had fun. It is good Joe didn't lose his school vacation. Most of the districts on L I had to go to school to make up Sandy and snow days. My gkids did, they were supposed to go away skiing, but they went to school instead.
