Key West

Today's post is going to be different-no cards!!!  I just wanted to share some pictures from my recent vacation.  We decided to take the cruise ship for our family vacation at the port in Jacksonville that is only 35 minutes from our home.  They only have 4 day and 5 day cruises and we usually do a 7 day.  So guess what we did, we did back to back cruises.  So we were gone for 9 days.    It was fabulous.
I fell in love with Old Key West.  It is just one of the most beautiful ports I have been too.  We rented an electric car and drove around the whole island just so we could see it all.
The vegetation and flowers are just beautiful.  Look at how gorgeous the sky is even in the background of the pictures!
This is Duval Street where all the tourist go.  There's Shopping, Restaurants, Bars, Hotels, Bed & Breakfast Establishments, Churches and everything else in between.
And here is an interesting tidbit-paved lawns!!!  No mowing necessary.  I saw a lot of this everywhere on the island!
This is one of the many fun signs you will find on the island.  I will be back another day with more pictures of Old Key West.  There is just so much I want to share because it was so beautiful.  So enjoy this tropical paradise in pictures.

Wow, those photos are amazing, Carol! What are tidbit paved lawns? I can't tell what material that is.

The sky looks AMAZING in every photo, like you Photo-shopped it! So glad you had a wonderful cruise. Sounds good for the soul. :)

I hope you don't have a halfway finished sentence on here - I started typing and lost it somehow.....I think I said that I wanted to pave my lawn but didn't think I could afford to pay to have a couple of acres covered in paving. Anyway your pics are great and I am sooooooo jealous! TFS!!!!

Glad you had a great time on your cruise... 9 days of pampering must be wonderful!! I enjoyed seeing your pics of Key West... brought back some fond memories of my own. Joe and I went there in 2001 for a spur of the moment vacation when we thought he was going to be deployed after 9-11. It was a fun destination, but filled with stress for us... so I sure would like to go back some time. I remember getting one of those electric cars... too fun! Thanks for sharing the pics!
