Some Sunshine

And, just like that, a month has flown by.

And here in Boston, it is what the locals like to call "spring" - which is really a torturous mix of days, where a couple are warmer and you can feel the tendrils of summer creeping in, alternating with icy cold days like today, where those tendrils retreat as the cold wind blows and the iciness stays.

But just a week ago I was returning from a little break that the hubby I took down South. We flew to Fort Lauderdale, and drove down, across all the Keys, to Key West. What a good time.

We did some snorkeling (with these guys, and they were great) and did a stand up paddle eco tour of the mangroves, which was simply phenomenal. We went with these guys, and I'd go again in a heartbeat.

There was also plenty of swimming in the hotel pool, reading and naps. Ah, naps. This was the view from our balcony.

We also headed across  to a tiny island off the end of Key West, called Sunset Key, for breakfast. The entire island is a hotel, and it is just blissful. On the way there, we passed by a pirate ship! If you click on the first pic, you'll see it (my zoom isn't quite that sharp)

But what was a real treat, was the architecture....

... and the floor at Sloppy Joe's.

So, would I recommend Key West? Yes!

Back to regular programming tomorrow.
