The Keys

25 06 2015

Way, way back in January (I know!), I went to Key West for the first time for a friend’s wedding. Apparently winter is their busy season – usually warm, sunny, and the perfect escape for northerners sick of cold. Surprisingly, it was cold, rainy, and cloudy almost the entire time we were there. Still, it’s a cool place… and, disclaimer: I only had my cell phone with me, so not the sharpest pics…

Such clear water! We don't have this back home at all!

Blue Heaven - really poor pic, but really great place. Even the locals recommend it. We went for brunch and had the BEST avocado omelet.  Try it!
