Day Trip

We took the kids and their SO down to Key West Saturday for some much needed fun and break. (left to right, me, Mr. Deepend, youngest son, eldest son's GF, eldest son, daughter and daughter's BF). We rented scooters to get around and that was a blast, four scooters all honking and riding around. The weather was wonderful and there were barely any tourist, considering its snowbird season, but since it was a week before Thanksgiving I guess most people had other plans,
which was a bonus for us. As we were leaving I found an orchid tree with one semi-bloom on it, the rest are still in pods, given the fact that it was 80*+ on Saturday and not a sign of any chilly weather coming our way I can only assume it will be in full bloom before Christmas. We have a tree here in Miami Beach on Lincoln Road, (south beach) it's beautiful when in bloom, I'll have to take my camera with me next time, see if I can get a close up.

Looks so warm and tropical. Could be because it is!
Sounds like a grand little get-away.

I've been wanting to go down to Key West lately. Now that I know you can rent scooters...
Did you all stop at the Tiki Bar in Islamorada on the way back ;)Best rum runners on the planet. And also Papa Joe's. Best conch chowder ever!

I want to go to the Keys again something bad! DH and I have camped several times and our fave is Bahia Honda! I think I have to stay in a real bed these days but I still love to dream about it.
