WOW, I should leave more often. I got more comments than on any other post. We returned from Key West today. It was a long (7 hour) drive but was better than the drive down. On the way down there was much more traffic (Friday afternoon). If you get the chance to go, go. We stayed at the Navel Air Station Annex in the lodge. It only costs $50.00 a night. What a deal. They also have trailers and townhouses you can rent through the MWR (Moral, Welfare and Recreation) so we might check them out next time. There is so much to see and do that you can't do it all. Duval Street is like New Orleans at Mardi Gras. It is the happening street with all the bars, shops and galleries. You have to go to Mallory Square just before sunset because that is where all the street vendors and acts are set up to celebrate the sunset. We toured Hemingway's house, went to the beach and yesterday did a glass bottom boat tour. I am not a boat person so did not have the best time. But I am happy to say that I am not the only person who lost their breakfast!!! Lots of colorful people to watch and great food. I told hubby that I was not cooking this week. We have to eat cereal of sandwiches. I am busy going through 200 emails and catching up on my blog reading. I will get to the pictures tomorrow. Thanks for all the comments. This would be a fun "girls" trip if anyone is interested.
I am retired from the Army after serving 22 years. I recently moved to Florida, not my choice, but my heart is in Washington State. I am married to my best friend. He must be, otherwise I would never have moved to Florida! His job is what brought us here and is what I hope will take us away some day soon.
