Now this is going to be boring blog…..  we pried ourselves away from the coast sometime this afternoon.  We are now in Hattiesburg, MS for the night.  And the most exciting thing that happened all day was when I locked us out of our room.  It wouldn’t have been so bad except I had alread […]

SPRING fever

March 23, 2010

What a blast we had today!  More time out of the car today than in it!  Our first tourist stop was Manatee Springs, about 60 miles from Ocala.  It was kinda on a whim but only about 10 miles out of the way.  After the road construction, deer crossing, and ranger station we were in […]

Mary and I have stopped for the night in Ocala, FL.  Our day started with rain in Deerfield Beach.  But it got better after that.  Before noon the sun was out and we had dropped the top again on the MiniCooper.  Our day wasn’t too exciting…  just out for a drive.  We set our sights […]

Yesterday Julie, KRay and DebbieLewis left us in Key West.  They were driving back to Texarkana.  This morning Kimmie and DT flew out really early.  Heard from all the gals today.  KRay and crew arrived home about 5:30 this afternoon.  Kimmie and DT finally made it into Texarkana about 7:00 this evening.  Seems their connecting flight […]

Today was the last day that we could spend doing those really touristy things!  Our day started at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.  That was a real treat and we have tons of pictures to prove it.  It was a glassed-in observation room… but it was big.  Filled with all kinds of butterflies, […]

Super fantastic day!  We were out on the boat and leaving the harbor before 7:30.  The captain took us out over 20 miles where he located a school of mackerel.  We fished it for a couple of hours and hauled in 15 keepers of king fish and mackerel, the largest being about 12-13 pounds.  Had […]

EEEEEEWWWWWW what a day!  We still had the little electric cart and continued to make our way around the island…  seeing everything that we could possibly see.  And taking pictures of it all. We started out running by the Key Lime Factory to take pics of a collection of brightly painted chairs.  Sure hope they […]

Although the day started off with rain, it has been full of friends and fun.  All of our folks have arrived and we spent the day showing everyone around, cruising Duval Street and finally… renting an electric 6 passenger cart.  We scooted down to Mallory Square for the sunset that was famously gorgeous.  Our meal was […]

A very leisurely day driving through the Keys.  We were only 130 miles out  but we took about 5 hours to do it!  Stopped for pictures, a little shopping, more sunblock, and a fish sandwich. Lunch was on Big Pine Key.  Mary and I both opted for a fresh basa sandwich, hers blackened and mine grilled.  […]

Just so you know…  the butter didn’t come out.  Mary says it may be a “permanent reminder” of what fun we are having.  Guess that’s the price I’ll have to pay! Yes, KRay, DebbieLewis and Julie are driving down.  They will be in Key West on Wednesday.  Kimmie and DT are also joining us.  They […]
