Exploring The Florida Keys: Marvin Key

I'm begging time to slow down right about now because we are so loving being in the Florida Keys for the month.  A few days after we arrived some friends came to visit for a week and we had so much fun exploring the Keys.

 The guys enjoyed some fishing!  We girls tried to enjoy it with them one day but the seasickness got us so we decided to visit Key West after that and have a girls' day out with shopping and lunch.


                                              Yep, these are the ones that didn't get away...

On the day that we got seasick, our fishing guide hurriedly got us to somewhat dry land so we could get our legs back underneath us.  He took us to a place called Marvin Key.  When we got there we knew that we would have to return.  It was like the most fun tailgate party on water!
People show up as the tide is beginning to go out and a huge sandbar becomes present.  The water is very shallow all around so people bring their chairs and umbrellas out, along with games for their kids and dogs to play.


We packed up for a day out there with our friends and brought a little grill along to make burgers for lunch...
                                  And yellow fin snapper that the guys caught the day before.
                                        It was so much fun having good friends visit us here!

Our friends are early risers.  I mean REALLY early risers.  Like they got to actually watch the sun rise every morning.  I took some of their photos to share because, hey!  I'm not going to put that kind of pressure on myself.  I sleep in and catch the sun setting.  Both are equally beautiful.

                  Sunset photo that I took on our way to Little Palm Island for dinner one evening.
         And I couldn't resist taking this photo of the "almost Full Moon" just outside our house.
As I mentioned, we had dinner one evening at Little Palm Island.  You get there by boat and leave from Little Torch Key.  I snapped this photo as we were pulling out of the dock there.
And here's our 35th anniversary photo.  Our friends wanted to go to Little Palm Island to eat dinner and we had stayed there a few years back and loved it.  It just happened to be our anniversary and we had so much fun celebrating there.

It's definitely going to be difficult to go back home, to reality after being here in this paradise for a month...
