Up up and away

We decided to relax things a bit with more leisurely mornings and a later start than the first day.

We headed off to Key Largo in search of lunch and some entertainment. Lunch was at Hobo's Cafe and everything was super yummy.

Then it was off to find the para-sailing adventure for the younger ones.

Left Brain and I have done this before, so he just paid to ride along in the boat.

I had not medicated myself for motion sickness and don't care much for boats, so stayed on land to get shots from the dock. 

This young man was trying to conquer the jet boots - he fell a lot.
I had to admire this pontoon with a picnic table on it.

The four high flying Rossings had a great time and then it was time to settle things down a bit with some beach time.

The beach was not quite what we had expected, but we'll find some better ones later this week in our travels.

It's not possible to be in Florida without sampling key lime pie, so we made a stop at Mrs Mac's for some on the way home.

I wasn't sure Kiersten really liked it until she cleaned up the pie plate with the server.  I think it was a hit.

Long Live the Queen of Landlubbers


  1. It is wonderful that your family is able to join you like this. These are memories to last a lifetime.

  2. I love the photos. My friend, you have a beautiful family. And I think it is just wonderful that they love doing things with you. Think of all the memories they will relish in days to come. Enjoy, and have a fabulous day. Hugs, Edna B.

  3. Starting January 12, 2016 I will be hosting "Tuesday's Treasures." A meme where you can share all things old...old and lovely or old and decide.
