Vacation and Holidays

Once again, I’m playing catchup on blogs and comments.  Actually, I’m not sure I ever caught up after Bad Moon Rising.  Anyhoo, it was for a good reason.  Hubby and I took a long weekend and traveled to Marathon, FL and Key West!  The weather was perfect – and if you knew our history with weather and vacations is a miracle in itself (hurricane during a cruise, a week in Hawaii with temps in the 40s).

We stayed in a new resort in Marathon (it was gorgeous), then drove down to Key West on for the afternoon on Monday.  With it being a weekday, it wasn’t too crowded, and only one cruise ship was docked.  Yes, we took a pic at the southernmost tip of the US.  Gorgeous views of the ocean.  I don’t have the words to describe the many shades of blues and greens.  Just look at that gorgeous sunset in the first pic.  The second is a little blurry, but you can barely make out the boats in the marina decorated with Christmas lights.  The third is the view from our hotel room the one night we spent in Miami before flying out.

Yes, I also did some reading – finished one book and only have 100 pages or so on another.  And remember when I said the weather was perfect?  It was also a little humid, and I forgot to pack my hair defrizzer.  This is live footage of how I looked at the beach for most of the trip.

This will be my last post of the year.  We’ll have both boys home for a few days, so I’m excited about that.  The youngest will be traveling to Dallas with his university’s marching band for a bowl game, so we’ve had to make some schedule accomodations, but the four of us will be seeing The Rise of Skywalker on Christmas Eve and then having dinner with friends who are really more like family.  Wishing all of you peaceful holidays spent with family and friends!

  1. I’m glad you had such a great time in Florida. Those photos are gorgeous! My brother and his wife used to live in Marathon and loved it there….well, except for the numerous hurricane evacuations, which is why they eventually end up moving, LOL.

    Here’s wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy your break, and I’ll look forward to catching up in 2020!
