My friend Dan just got back from Key West. He went down for a vacation and did some fly fishing while he was there. Just looking at the pictures made me envious.
It's been years since we've been to south Florida. MaBell sent me down there to train some data center folks and they put me up in a hotel on South Beach. Jilda had never been to South Florida so we sprung for an extra ticket for her.  On Saturday we drove south out of Miami and headed down to the Keys. We stopped at a cafe for lunch and had shrimp and crab claws. 
The cafe had its own dock where fishermen brought in fresh seafood during the day. As we ate, we watched one boat maneuver in. Birds of all description flew into the mangroves around the dock to see if they could pick up a little seafood too.
It was a beautiful trip. I'd love to return this year and do a little fly fishing too. Maybe Santa Claus will bring me that for my birthday next week :)

    Funny thing here. I logged on and the first blog post I saw was yours called "Keys" and as soon as I saw that Kramer from Seinfeld said "Keys".

    Weird, lol.

  2. I didn't know Santa Claus visited people on their birthdays! Does that mean we have to be nice ALL the time?? o_0

  3. Awww let's hope Santa brings you this birthday present too!! It sounds like a brilliant place to go and relax with your flyfishing! Take care

  4. Haven't been to the Keys in ages either and yes it is beautiful. Hope Santa has woke up and hears your request :)

  5. May Santa or the Birthday Fairy bring you what you wish for. That would be awesome. I've been to Miami a few times but not the Keys. That's on the list.

  6. Hope you get your trip, and have a happy birthday.
