This was probably our last family vacation, and it was the best. MS wasn't going to go with us at first because he didn't think our timeline was going to work for him with work and a fraternity leadership conference. It turned out that the timing was perfect for him, so he was able to go. Having all of the boys (and OS' girlfriend with us) was the best Christmas present I could've ever received.
Two of the pies you see in the clip are Fried Key Lime Pie. I didn't know there was such a thing, but there is. And, they were sooo good!
In one of the night pictures, you can see 4 red lights. Those are the Radio Free America Towers. It was so neat to sit there at night and think about the history of that part of the country.
I went snorkeling for the first time, and it was great...right up until I got out of the water and got sick. Several times. The waves were about 3 ft. that day, so I think I can blame it on that. The visibility was amazing.
We met a couple from New Jersey who frequent The Keys, sometimes sailing down. They were very interesting to talk to, and, she's a blogger! Bum's Rest
The funniest incident from the trip was something OS' GF told me happened: They rented a tandem bike for the week, and almost every day they ended up riding over to the beach. One day, they were riding down the road, and OS saw a car with tags from our county. He started waving his arms and yelling: _____ County! The people in the car finally figured out what he was talking about, and yelled back, "It's a RENTAL"!
I could go on and on about the trip, but I'll spare you! I hope you enjoyed the clip!
