The suitcases are still in the middle of my kitchen, but we are home from our family reunion in the Florida Keys. We had a fabulous trip . . . just enough togetherness. We enjoyed great food, great wine, and spectacular scenery.
I took a vacation from any attempt at serious writing, though . . . because my brain melted in the heat. After trips to the Bahamas and the Florida Keys this summer, I’ve learned this: I’m really more of a shade worshipper.
So while I tackle the tedious process of re-entry (unpacking, laundry, mail, etc.), I’ll leave you with my Top Ten Takeaways from the Florida Keys, and my favorite snapshots from our trip:
- It’s hot . . . really hot.
- It’s humid . . . really humid.
- Barking Tree Frogs need a mute button.
- Iguanas are surprisingly fast.
- Mahi-Mahi are almost too pretty to eat.
- Lobster fishing is harder than it looks.
- Dolphins are so stinkin’ cute.
- I want to live in Ernest Hemingway’s house.
- Injured sea turtles will melt your heart.
- Frozen, chocolate-covered Key Lime pie on a stick is genius.
I’ve got a good start on my Trouble post . . . hope you do, too!
