Introducing the one and only...Annie the Wonder Springer!

I can't believe it, but we've come to the last day of our trip. We managed to gather everyone together for a group picture. You may not believe that we're in Key West, based on the long sleeves and covered legs in this picture. The rain and wind from yesterday blew in a cold front. The coolness made it a little easier to leave.

On our way to Hog's Breath, we stopped by the sign for the end of US 1 for the required tourist pictures.
Hog's Breath turned out to be full - we decided that a Harley themed cruise ship must be in town. Rather than wait an hour, we headed on to another place for lunch. Two Friends turned out to be a great option!
It had mostly quit raining, but remained gray the rest of the day.

On Friday, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary! It sounds trite, but it really does seem like the 10 years have flown by. I can't think of a better way or place to celebrate than in our favorite place with some of our favorite people!
Todd's fowl relationship made great strides while we were there. From being slightly horrified by the pigeons on our first day to hand feeding the chickens less than a week later!
After a tour of the island on the Conch Tour Train, our fearless leaders in orange got us to West Marine and then Sandy's for delicious Cuban sandwiches for lunch.
In keeping with the fowl theme, part of our group spent some time at the Green Parrot Bar - one of the oldest bars in Key West.

I really wanted some beach time before the forecasted rain came, so part of our group rode back to Fort Zach on Thursday morning. I love spending the day hanging out in the hammock, listening to the ocean.

Each morning, we enjoyed breakfast with the resident rooster and chickens at the hotel. Turns out that they really like Cheerios!
We walked around the harbor, finding great ideas, like this tiki hut with a motor. Wouldn't that be fun out on the lake?!
David and I insisted that the Key West experience wasn't complete without a stop by Captain Tony's. It's a great dark cool bar that was in a Jimmy Buffett song - AND they have ski ball!

I've said I wouldn't do it again, but on our second full day in Key West, I found myself climbing the 88 steps to the top of the lighthouse. I arrived at the top huffing, puffing, and sweating. David has been to the top, but wisely stayed on the ground. See him down there in blue?
After the lighthouse, we hopped on our bikes and headed to B.O.'s Fish Wagon for lunch. B.O.'s looks like it was assembled by a hurricane, and appears to be no worse for the wear.
After lunch we walked over to the Key West bight area to check out the Christmas trees and boats.
I think Todd is dreaming of sailboats.
