I never think to take pictures on Halloween, and I vowed to make up for lost time this year. While I took more pictures than past years, I still didn't manage many. Todd and Scott built new pumpkin pyramids this year, with a little help from David and me in carving.

Returning to the real world after a vacation is never fun, but it's been made easier by returning to pretty nice fall weather and beautiful trees.

Saturday morning at the beach was so nice that we decided on a repeat performance for Sunday. We chose a different spot and settled in.
We returned to Caroline's for dinner and enjoyed visiting with our favorite server from our 2012 trip. We hated to see our trip end - the only way I managed to leave was a promise of a return trip in 2017 if not before. See you soon, Key West!
**Yes, the title is from another Buffett song...what did you expect? ;)

The weather was more cooperative on our first full day in Key West. As is often the case, we were up and about before most places were open - including the bike shop where we wanted to rent our transportation for the weekend.
**No, my bike wasn't actually red. Nor was it a bike, but that's a line from a Jimmy Buffett song that I'm pretty sure is written about Key West.

For my birthday, David got me a great surprise - a trip to Key West! I couldn't believe it! Lots of people knew, but everyone managed to keep his secret. I first opened a new carry-on bag (that I thought was a soft-sided tool bag), then a certificate he'd made for a belated birthday dinner at my favorite Key West restaurant. I was still really confused, even after he gave me the itinerary for our trip.
The rain didn't dampen our spirits as we returned to eat at some favorite places and walk Duval to do some people watching.
**Thank you, Jimmy Buffet, as always, for the loan of the title
