The place we stayed in the keys was absolutely perfect. It was located directly on the Gulf and lined with palm trees and hammocks; the perfect location for doing absolutely nothing; exactly what this family needed. The sunsets never cease to amaze me. I stand there in awe every time taking a ridiculous number of pictures as the colors evolve every few seconds. I don’t think I will ever get tired of watching them.
The real reason we went to the keys was for our annual showdown with Key West High School. This year was a bit different than last. This year we won (yay!), but unfortunately my son got a fever just an hour before the game started. The win was great, but a bit bittersweet night for us since he was feeling so bad. We spent the weekend in the keys relaxing with family as planned. As soon as we got home on Sunday, I took him to the urgent care and sure enough he had bronchitis. They gave us an antibiotic and we are hoping for a quick recovery.
All is well that ends well.
