The Florida Keys

Hot Cuban coffee
Palm trees and wild iguanas
Warm daily showers

We stayed a week on Cudjo Key, about 25 minutes east of Key West. The weather was intensely hot and humid, but the views were amazing.

We ate real key lime pie and drank shots of bitter Cuban coffee.

We visited Mel Fisher’s Maritime Museum and walked around Key West’s outdoor markets. We bought candles and postcards, tropical Christmas ornaments and fake pirate swords.

It was an amazing week full of family fun, good food and lots of sunblock. Can’t wait till next year!
