Happy Anniversary to us!

May 15 was our 27th wedding anniversary. We had never ever had a vacation by ourselves, so we decided this was our year.

Always wanting to go to the Florida Keys thats what we did. We stayed at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key.
What a nice place!!!! Rooms there start at 149.00 a nite so how can you go wrong for a resort?

We drive up and wow its pretty. Lots of flowers and foliage, well maintained.
Get to our room and again WOW

The bed



The bathroom



The view from the balcony


The week we went seems to be the start of rainy season but thats ok, the temps were down and we got to do most everything we wanted except for a keys sunset.

This was the sunset we caught on our last night while having a spectacular dinner at Alma on the patio of the hotel. The sunset may not have been what we were wanting but oh that food was beyond!! It was also the most expensive meal for 2 we had ever had!


For a great beach (we were told the keys had no good beaches) go to Bahia Honda State Park. 6.00 for 2 to get in.


haha me at the beach unheard of!!

Rob loves the beach


We did go fishing which was the one thing Rob wanted to do. It was a nasty rainy morning which turned into a bright sunny morning. We caught a bunch of grunt, snapper, trigger fish. Nothing really worth keeping for us to take back and have someone cook so we gave them away.


Many more pictures are on my flickr if you would like to look.

As always the best part of vacationing is getting home to your own bed!
