For the next few weeks I am going to be posting not only delicious food recipes for you I am also going to share with you our adventures this month. For those of you just interested in recipes, don’t worry, my all food posts will be back at the end of the month. But in the meantime, enjoy some of our adventures and of course a few recipes!
My husband Andrew and I decided to keep all of our vacation time and put it together for a full month off of work before starting a new job in Peoria, Illinois. Over the past month my husband and I have been packing, cleaning, and eagerly waiting for the month of June to arrive. This busy month is packed full of fun and life changing events. Our first stop is South Beach Miami where we are spending 7 relaxing days on the beach, followed by 3 days in Key West, 4 days in Cape Cod for a wedding, and 10 days in Grand Cayman. Today we are going to cruise down A1A and hang out in Key West for a little while. We are staying at a cute bed and breakfast called the Popular House. A few years ago I went to Key West with my parents and we had so much fun. It has such a Caribbean feel. I am very excited to take my husband down to Key West with me, I am sure he will love it.
We have spent the past couple of days in South Beach walking the beach, strolling the boardwalk, people watching on Lincoln Road and feeling like I am on the set of Miami Vice in the Art Deco District.
Last night we walked down to the Art Deco district and had dinner at one of the restaurants along the strip. After walking past all the pastel building and bright neon lights we decided to grab a drink and people watch at the Fox Café. After a few drinks we ended up having dinner there too. The grilled mahi mahi and tuna were amazing.
Here is a picture of me enjoying one of the fruity drinks on South Beach. Sorry that the picture is so bad, I took it with my iPhone!
We are getting ready to cruise down 126 miles and over 42 bridges to Key West to spend 3 nights. Have any of you ever been to Key West? Are there some don’t miss hot spots or restaurants? Please let me know!
