Friday 9th August
We set off for Key Largo early in the morning, and spend time exploring, shopping and having ice cream!
Most of the afternoon is spent relaxing, lying in the shade, listening to the sea breeze rustle through the palm fronds, and occasionally hear the piped music wafting over from the swimming pool ~ Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville and Katrina and the Waves Walking on Sunshine made me smile.
I was also fascinated by the visits I had from bright green iguanas, a friendly squirrel and a group of four white ibis. All of these creatures passed in front of me, whilst I was lying on my sunchair! I glimpsed pelicans and frigate birds too, soaring into the blue skies.
Half an hour before sunset we walked out to the beach to watch the setting sun, and marvel at the colours in the sky: it was beautiful this evening. A superb end to our stay in the Florida Keys ~ here’s to another visit in the not too distant future!
