On the morning of writing this post I had to scrape ice off my car. In APRIL. And it’s so cold in my house that the butter on my kitchen counter won’t soften. How am I supposed to do anything, involving butter or not, if the butter on my counter won’t get soft? I feel like I really got stuck on the wrong side of global warming. So because of these things, it was both dreamy and painful to look at these sunny and green pictures. This is why it took me so long to edit them. I just couldn’t face that this trip was over.
This was our second time visiting Key West together. The first time we were staying in Ley Largo and drove in just for the day. It was in July and really, really hot, so all I remember is stumbling around looking for a good beach, which we did not find because you really need to know where to look and this was before I had a smart phone. This time we stayed at Marrero’s Guest Mansion, which was nice but I’d probably find another place next time. We were only there for two days, and aside from taking it easy we really only went to the Hemingway House, up the lighthouse, went to Fort Zachary and the beach there, and walked to Mallory Square to see the sunset (along with way too many other people). We ate at wonderful places like Firefly and The Cafe and picked up a slice of our favorite Key Lime Pie at Blond Giraffe on our way out of town. I also can’t forget the fish sandwich from Caroline’s and finally trying conch fritters. Until next time, Key West!
