Five Things from Florida's Spring Break - Key West

After a four year hiatus, we took a Spring Break trip to visit my parents in Fort Myers, Florida!

They are in the process of selling their Florida place, so it may be the last time we get to enjoy it. As a result we did all sorts of things we normally don't do.

1. We took the high speed ferry to Key West and spent two days roaming the island, drinking in the azure water and skies.

2. We snorkeled the third largest barrier reef (of course, the largest is in Australia, the second largest is in Belize)

We've snorkeled in Belize and while the water is clearer there, the variety of coral and aquatic life was very similar in Key West.

3. We parasailed:

4. We enjoyed the local fare and had the best coffee, compliments of Cuban Coffee Queen:

5. Of course, I took a morning run down Duval street to the Southern most point in the US and watched this sunrise:

It was a wonderful, warm getaway. We did lots in Fort Myers, too - more to share in the coming days!

Sounds like a fun and exciting trip. I think I would enjoy the high speed ferry ride but maybe not parasailing (I'm afraid of heights). The nice warm sunshine and beaches look so inviting.

Beautiful shots and glad you got to enjoy this place before your parents moved.

I love that first picture of Key West. It would be nice to be there right now, when it's 34 feels like 28 out! I would love to run there and watch the sunrise.

What a wonderful spring break! I've never been to the Keys, but would love to visit. Gorgeous images.
