Keys Vacation pt 2

on December 25, 2013

One of my favorite things about visiting the Keys is the drive, well the part through the keys themselves, the drive to get there I can do without.  This trip though I was lucky enough to be able to stop in Key Biscayne to see my friend Vicki who was home from Boston with her boyfriend, John.

Key Biscayne

We meet in Key Biscayne (for those of you who don’t know this is a key between Fort Lauderdale and Miami) because John really wanted to eat at Oasis Café (aka. Oasis Sandwich Shop).  He has gone there with family since he was little.  The food was fantastic!  It is one of those great hidden gems.  Now, if you go plan on it being take out.  There isn’t really anywhere to sit.  We took out collection of food to the beach (what else do you do in south Florida in December?).

US 1 break

Anyway back to the keys.  The Overseas Highway has some spectacular views and the water is some of the most beautiful shades of turquoise.  Now the highway is very straight and can kind of hypnotize you.  The good news is that there are lots of little parks (overlooks and state parks) along the way to stop and stretch your legs or fish

A Creative Place for Wherever Life Leads

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

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 a 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.
