Hello

Just thought I would drop a quick note saying Hi, I haven't forgotten our blog. We've just been busy. We have finally arrived back home and now we have to unpack all of our stuff from storage, moving into our new place. Which we are going to do today.

I still promise to add pictures from snorkeling and pictures from the dolphin show soon! Here's a peek!

Later, -Katie

On our way home

We drove all day yesterday, and stopped last night to camp in Gulf Shores, Alabama. (Which is where Taylor used to go to school, so she got to see an old friend) For dinner last night we went to Lamberts Cafe- Home of the Thrown Rolls! that place is fun. :)

Anyway, here are a few random pictures from the Keys that I haven't posted yet.

Bobby the Gator

We are on our way back home via the west coast of florida, which means we got to go through the everglades. Look what I found!

Baby Bobby the Alligator was so so cute, He even gave me a gator hug!

Yesterday Taylor and I got to swim with some dolphins- I haven't uploaded pictures yet, but I will asap.

Key West Sunset

Every night in Key West there is a Sunset Celebration, where there are abunch of performers & artists celebrating the sun setting.
I got a couple of pics of the beautiful sunset!

Kracko in the Keys


Whew, it's been a busy couple of days. I've made it almost to Cuba.
I've had to stay on my toes too. From Hammerhead sharks to Crocodile waiters, to pirates, it's a wonder I have survived.

It's been a fun time tho. I went snorkeling with the family and played at the beach. Did a little souvenir shopping and worked on my tan. oh and had a little pizza in key west.

Snorkeling

I can't believe I forgot to mention this in yesterdays post..

While we were out snorkeling, Taylor and I saw a shark! Taylor spotted it and started swimming away, and I was swimming closer to get a better look! It was a 6ft long nurse shark, which don't generally bother people, but still seeing a shark was really awesome!
I wish I had gotten a picture. :(

The Florida Keys

Today we made it to the florida keys- It's beautiful here!! The weather is in the 80s and the water is nice & warm! Today we took a snorkel tour, I have a couple of pictures from the 25 minute boat ride out to the coral reef. I used an underwater camera to take pictures in the water of the coral reef, so I have to wait and get those developed. (so old school, lol.)
But here are a few pics from the day..
Tonight we will be staying in this nice little treehouse hotel. cute, right?
