2012 Cruise Post 2: Key West

We woke up Monday morning to this view in the Florida Keys:

Key West view


We hopped off the ship to explore Key West!

A walk down Duval Street brought us to Key West’s South Beach:

A vacation decision maker found on the pier!  Never again will DT and I squabble about what to do on vacation.  😉

We stopped by the Southernmost Beach Cafe and DT had this beautiful Mojito:

(I had white wine….not as pretty or fancy.)

After sufficient beach time, we made our way back to the ship, but not without a little sightseeing on Duval.

Doggie bar

I love this....a doggie water bar outside one of the restaurants!

And then, we happened upon some feathered friends….

Mamma and her babies....how cute and fuzzy are they??

There was only one thing left to do:  eat a slice of Key Lime Pie while in Key West.  This….is a bucket list item, and folks, I was in the right place.

You bet I’ll taste for myself!

My slice….drool:

Here I am, gesticulating over my pie:

me, pie

pie, YUM


OMG, pie!

OMG....pie. Eeeep!

Tangy, limey, creamy, perfect.  My time in Key West was complete.

DT and I enjoyed that port so much….it was like a tropical Provincetown with its main street, shops, and restaurants.  And of course, the pie.  🙂  It was so walkable and easy to get around.

We returned to the ship and took a photo on the balcony as we set sail.

THEN, we broke out Yahtzee. And it’s ON!

Tuesday was a day at sea and we were sooooo lazy.  We’d gotten quite a bit of sun in Key West so we camped out in the shade on one of the upper decks to read most of the morning.  After lunch, we parked on our balcony, read some more, and I took a sweet nap.  I awoke to this:

Tuesday sunset

Not too shabby!

We showered, got ready, and made our way to the lobby bar for more Yahtzee.

Still winning, BOOya!  😉

When we got back to the room, a friend was waiting….

DT and I thought he resembled RJ with his big ears and feet, heehee:

That’s all from Key West!
