Keys Vacation pt 1

on December 23, 2013

I love vacations! (who doesn’t right?)  When I planned this vacation last year I hoped that at least 1 of my friends would be able to go with me but unfortunately that didn’t happen.  Vacations are more fun with other people but sometimes going by yourself is relaxing and rejuvenating.

My 1st stop was the Hilton Key Largo (well not my very 1st stop.  I visited a friend in Key Biscayne on the way down).  Have you ever stayed at the Hilton Key Largo?  It is wonderful.   Most of their rooms are actually suites and they all have balconies!  It is also located right on the beach and has some amazing views of the sunset.

One of the other cool things is that they have turned themselves into a resort.  There are 2 pools, 2 beaches (1 is a hammock beach) pool bar, beach bar, restaurant, room service, Watersports rental, dock, spa, fitness center, gift shop and meeting space.

One of the things that I thought was really cool is that they have a self guided nature trail for kids.  They have these boxes and informational plaques set up throughout the grounds that give facts on the local flora & fauna (one of those Latin words means animals, right?).  Along with the plaques there are boxes containing bracelets for kids to collect.  Each box has a different color.  If they find all of the plaques then they get to go on the wall of fame.

music, poetry, musings, photography and philosophy from a woman who found her way back home and wants you to come over for a hike and a cocktail.

Belle of the Library

... the musings of an BARELY thirty-something, married, Southern librarian with a wildly inappropriate sense of humor, an inability to gauge most emotional cues, a dear best friend since ninth grade, and a stubborn, mouthy, redheaded country boy to accompany her through life.
