We got back from a fun trip to Miami and Key West this week. It was a fantastic vacation and I'm already anxious to go back to those beaches! Thanks to Jeff & Tara for taking care of us in Miami!!! I apologize for so many pictures... I just could not narrow it down. Don't mind my hair--I was having big time humidity/hair issues.
We lucked out with perfect weather and no hurricanes. Poor Grey got sick at the end and we had a late night urgent care visit for croup. The most dreaded part (the flights) turned out perfectly minus getting thrown up on at take off. I had to sit in the stink for 4 hours.... Better than screaming I guess!!!
Some highlights from our trip:
Driving through all of the Keys top to bottom. I have always wanted to do that drive. It was long, but so relaxing and enjoyable. We stopped at an adorable cafe on Sugarloaf Key for lunch.
Spending two nights in Key West at a gorgeous hotel we got a steal on. We spent a lot of time at the pool. I absolutely LOVED Key West. It is such a charming town and just gorgeous!
Swimming in the turquoise ocean near the southernmost point of the USA! Only 90 miles to Cuba--Think I could swim it?
Renting bikes and riding them downtown for the Sunset Celebration. Key West has performers and a party for the sunset every night. We sat and watched a sword-swallower for a long time.
Taking an airboat ride at the Everglades. We saw two alligators that came right up to the boat. Grey touched an alligator back at the boats and I actually held it. Yes, as you can see from my face I was scared to death. I saw it staring me down....
Going to Miami Beach (the BEST beach in the world!) and swimming for hours
