KEY WEST OR BUST

12/11/13


We've made some amazing friends down here in Florida, it will be sad to say goodbye next month. For the past few weeks we have been planning a fun little road trip with our good friends, Sarah and Jared, to see the Florida Keys. This past weekend called for 80 degrees and blue skies so we knew it was the perfect time to drive down before the holiday season. Our first stop was a fishing place called Robbie's where you could feed these giant fish and get attacked by pelicans. It was awesome!


^^ I may be smiling in this picture but those fish were disgusting, especially when the scales would stick to my hands. But I felt I was fulfilling a childhood dream of being a marine biologist so all was well. ^^


^^ Pelicans were everywhere! And they were really wanting those fish, but I guess they'll go with anything. ^^


^^ Yes, what you see is true. Their mouths are on top of their heads. Gross. ^^

  42. I lived in Miami for a year and the one thing I regret is not having made a trip to the Keys. Thank you for sharing (fish and all).

  43. What gorgeous photos - except of the fish; well, the photos are lovely but the fish, yuck. You were brave to actually get so close to them! Although the water is such a gorgeous colour, I probably would have been tempted to go close, too. I love Florida, it's been years since I've visited and this post made me really nostalgic. Thanks for sharing!

  46. Bahahaha... the captions you put underneath these are the best! My personal favorite: "Yes, what you see is true. Their mouths are on top of their heads. Gross."

  47. So cute! And colorful--we've got to get down to the Keys soon. But eww, the fish....it's fun catching them, but touching them? Not so much haha! Good on you for braving it!

  49. oh the large glasses.. hehehe! changes are so bitter sweet but it looks like you have made memories to last a life time:)
    for some reason I feel those fish may have a secret plan to take over the world.. yuck.. way to keep a cute smile on your face!

  50. Oh my goodness, those fish are too much! When I was little, up until the time I was in the 6th grade I wanted to be a marine biologist. Then I realized that I'm actually way too cautious and semi-afraid of things that lurk in the ocean. I blame that wanted career choice on my love of dolphins. Haha!
