Next stop was a check mark off my bucket list … Key West Florida.
Even though I’m from a place with beautiful beaches and the Pacific Ocean surrounding the island, I’ve always wanted to come here.
Our drive South from Key Largo to Key West was spectacular! We had been told that the Seven Mile Bridge would be spooky, but we didn’t find that to be so. DH had driven down here with his buddy’s back when we were all young adults, but that was on the “old bridge” As we passed it along side the new one, I couldn’t imagine it being sturdy and yes probably scary back then.
What I did see as odd was something in the air, off in the distance… IT’S A BLIMP! DH thought that it was most likely a weather blimp, as we were close to an Air Station. So I looked that up and yup, he’s correct! That was kinda cool.
We got ourselves checked in to our hotel, and boy-howdy-dowdy let me tell you guys, THIS is a real nice place!
This is out our back door!
Not a bad place at all!
I am SO glad that the hotel that we had booked to begin with had their pool closed and we decided to find a different hotel, FOR SURE!!!
We sat in the chaise lounge chairs after a dip in the pool, and watched the sunset, gorgeous.
And what did I spy across the street from the hotel but another Publix.
