I'm Going to Key Largo......

next week to see my dad and I want to finish up the last few sets of art squares I had hanging around, as well as get a baby quilt I was working on quilted and a swap with my buddy in St. Ives in the mail. The goal is to get all these loose ends wrapped up by Friday and get the studio cleaned up so I can leave with a clear head and clean house!

I hated living in Florida, but I've always loved the beach - and the Keys (which are far, far removed from the road rage, congestion and angry "peeps" that frequent the cities of South Florida.) Usually we all go to visit, or at the very least Sabrina and I, but schedules just didn't work out that way so I'm going by myself. My dad just bought a house in Key Largo right on the ocean and I have not seen it yet. This will be my first visit to the new house. Sal went a few weeks ago and had a great time. My dad's house is on the Atlantic Ocean right on the sound (about 1 mile or two from Pennecamp Reef National Park) which means the water is teeming with fish and wildlife and tons of manatee. So as of Sunday, do not look for me here I will be in Key Largo, working on my tan and swimming with the manatee!

Dear Cathie, I do so hope you have a wonderful time and relax and enjoy time with your Dad. The beach house sounds wonderful, look forward to seeing a piccy or two of the beautiful beaches in Key Largo. I once read a book about it

Have a safe journey too

I have been going to the Keys since 1992. My two favorite places to eat? The Cracked Conch in Marathon. Excellent conch fingers. And at the Seaport in Key West is The Conch Republic Seafood Company. The best chowder ever. The red kind. The best. And don't miss Bahia Honda State Park just south after you cross the 7 mile bridge. Make sure you walk to the top part of the old flagler bridge. What a view. Enjoy and a great blog. All the best.
