Florida Keys Trip 2013

I was so done with the cold, so I went down to the Florida Keys this week for a little R&R. Sadly it was a little too chilly for suntanning this week, with some rain, but luckily that’s not really what the keys are known for. I decided to try my hand at fishing and got a seat on a nice charter boat company–they put me on the Conch Too. I have never seen water as truly turquoise as the water just nine miles off the coast of Key West–the southernmost point in the United States. It was turquoise from the Crayola crayon box turquoise. We saw a sea turtle (YES!) and a shark (NO!)–which the captain wanted to try and catch! I was happy with catching my first fish, and exploring Ernest Hemingway’s home–how about that pool?! I spent the rest of my time in Key Largo–where Humphrey Bogart’s and Katherine Hepburn’s film The African Queen was filmed. I even went on a glass bottom boat tour to check out the coral reefs, so cool! I had key lime pie–of course–and a bunch of other amazing seafood. If only the trip were longer! Check out the pics!
