The gardens around the pool at Casa Thorn were incredibly lush.
Possibly our best family portrait thus far. Taken at Casa Thorn.
It feels like we're in the jungle when on the rooftop patio at Casa Thorn.

Digging into some whole shrimp while listening to a band at the Key West Seafood Festival.
As we pull around the southern tip of Key West, we don't know if Sebastian realizes that he's on a boat for the first time.
A glimpse underwater near Key West. It's pretty hard to see much at dusk.
It's pretty darned cold snorkeling at dusk.
They're right when the locals say that the sunsets are good here since there's no polution in your way.
Beer, and champagne included on the tour!
This one's for Grandpa
Such brilliant bright colours here in Key West: from the blue sky to the palm trees to the houses.
Porches line the sunny side of the street on Truman Ave.
We were too impaitent to stand in the queue to get our picture beside the Southernmost Point. Ah, close enough.
Fortunately he woke up happy, because we had to disrupt his nap for this shot.
There it is. We saw another Hemingway landmark. We didn't go in to see the remaining descendents of his famed cat collection.
This old lighthouse replaced a wooden version that was closer to shore, but it got washed away in a storm. $10 will let you climb the 88 stairs to the top.

This is one of the best beaches in the Keys, and also one of the best sunset spots.
The salt air eats away at the old roadway that was built atop the railroad. Then a hurricane came along. Now there's a new road.
This state park is definitely worth a visit. A nice beach, some walking trails, and nice views.
It can be difficult to find a good spot to view the sunset on the Upper Keys, for there's often land in the way. Marker 88 restaurant does have one of the best vantage points.
Jumbo coconut shrimp, check. Guacamole, check. Beer and wine, check. A rocking table and chair set? Check. Is this a perfect evening? I think so. (At Marker 88, Islamorada)
seriously, try our pie. I love this. But I did not eat enough key lime pie while in the Keys.
