Postcards from Key West

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:

  1. It’s hot . . . really hot.
  2. It’s humid . . . really humid.
  3. Barking Tree Frogs need a mute button.
  4. Iguanas are surprisingly fast.
  5. Mahi-Mahi are almost too pretty to eat.
  6. Lobster fishing is harder than it looks.
  7. Dolphins are so stinkin’ cute.
  8. I want to live in Ernest Hemingway’s house.
  9. Injured sea turtles will melt your heart.
  10. 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!
