Quick trip to the Keys

The weekend after we moved in to the rent house we took my brother in law down to Florida to pick up a van that he had won on eBay. Since we were going all the way to Miami to get the van we decided that it would be pretty much mandatory that we stay the weekend and visit the Keys. Although the weather was cold and windy we all had a great time.

The one full day we had in the keys was a Saturday. We spent the day slowly wandering down the keys, stopping so the guys could fish along the way at the various public fishing bridges.

Something took my bait!

We stopped halfway down the keys at Bahia Honda State Park to get a closer look at the water and possibly get our feet wet.

Could be warmer!

By dinner time we had made it all the way down to the southernmost point of the continental United States (or at least to the marker, the point is actually not accessible). We went by Ernest Hemmingway's house and then went to dinner in Key West at Sloppy Joe's, Hemmingway's old haunt.

The drive back 100+ miles to Miami was complimented by a pretty sunset in the rearview mirror and great music on the stereo. None of us wanted to leave, but hopefully we will go back again when it is a bit warmer and snorkeling is possible.
