Sweet hubby, the Grouch, spent the last few months planning a much needed vacation to Florida for the two of us, and what a great time we both had over the past two weeks. The sweet Grouch has a detailed post on our trip with great pictures here, don't miss it.
We spent two days with my brother and his family near Tampa. While there we were lucky enough to attend the party of the year, the 50 year wedding anniversary of my sister-in-law's parents.

Then we headed to Florida City where we spent the night and ate the finest seafood platter at one of our favorite restaurants, the Mutineer. Yum Yum. Only one of the fantastic meals we had during our trip.
Next morning we headed South to Key West.
Stopping along the way to enjoy the sites.
So much to see in Old Town Key West and I don't think we missed anything.
Ship wrecks, museums, salvaged gold, silver, emeralds, oh my!
Below is a real bar of silver recovered from one shipwreck, heavy, and valuable.
More on shipwrecks and recovered treasures later.
Beaches, palms, sand, sunshine, and critters.
Roosters, chickens, and baby chicks are all over Key West running wild and begging scraps .
Churches of every denomination, beautiful buildings for worship.
