In the details

When we were in Key West, I really noticed some of the charm of the older houses - the cute little pink houses with gingerbread trim, the fantastic windows of the Ernest Hemingway home and the humongous banyan trees.


Of course, there is also more than a fair share of "historic" bar signs and the corresponding watering holes...





Which of course, led to a fair share of Irish car bombs...


But we also managed to have a few great meals... One at 915 where Steven had this great whole fish, prepared with Thai seasoning.

We also dined at an Italian restaurant... I have no idea of the name, but it was great. Pictured is another group from our same city that we didn't travel with, but did manage to run into on our first night and of course, shared a few libations to celebrate being in Key West! Alan, aka Birthday boy is in yellow, hubby is in white across from him.


It wasn't all drinking and eating... well, pretty close, but Hubby & I did manage to soak up a little culture (and shade) when visiting the Hemingway house...

Now it's back to reality as we prepare for the Half marathon... we'll be finished this time next week! Ack!
