Each morning began by the pool, which isn’t a bad way to start a day.
On our last full day in Key West we walked to Ft. Zachary Taylor Beach and enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner at Sloppy Joe’s.
That is Lesli and Jimmy enjoying the calm water and loving how not crowded it was.
The last time Chuck and I went to Sloppy Joe’s we were 18 years old, which meant we went to a historical bar and ordered a couple of Cokes. This time, we enjoyed being over 21.
We saw these other beautiful things on the island too…
Before heading out for the evening we had someone at the hotel take our photo:
Then we took a less formal one:
Though our first trip to Key West will always be a warm spot of nostalgia in my heart, it was better the second time around, and not just because we were with friends. It’s truly a place for adults to cut loose and leave responsibility at home.
I’m thankful for this man, who’s kept me laughing and loved for two decades straight. I couldn’t ask for a better partner.
Thank you to our mothers (my mom and Jimmy’s mom) who kept our children happy and safe so we could escape reality for a few days and celebrate our anniversaries.
