Part of Our Florida Holiday

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I spent a quiet Christmas in the Florida Keys.  Joining me was my daughter, Alexis, my grandchildren Jude and Truman, and our friend, Kevin Sharkey.  As it turned out, where we stayed, Pines and Palms in Islamorada, is a very good place for a family vacation.  It was a very comfortable bungalow and having a functional kitchen to prepare meals made things quite easy with the little ones.  We did venture one day to the southernmost point in the continental United States.  Key West is just 90-miles from Cuba compared to 150-miles to Miami.  Although there were several places of interest, we found Key West to be quite touristy.  With its many honky tonk drinking bars, it reminded us of a mini New Orleans.  Still, the drive through the Keys is quite lovely and there is much to take in.
