Two weeks ago we had a three day weekend, so being in the cold Chicago weather we decided to make the most of it with a weekend trip to Key West, Florida.
It's been a while since we've posted anything, and I'm not fully in the mood for typing a lot so we are just going to dump a ton of photos on here and maybe make a few comments - enjoy...
Friday night we flew in and met our Friends Heather and Mike in Miami Beach for some drinking and relaxing with live music, no photos of that night, but then bright and early Saturday morning we were up and in a rented convertible for the drive down to Key West.

First night in Key West - enjoying some nice wine
After the cruise we wandered to an outstanding tapas restaurant for dinner and then to a chocolate restaurant called 'Better than Sex' for desert, where even the wine glasses are dipped in chocolate for you to enjoy. I'm not sure that it really lived up to it's name, but it was pretty good...
Overall it was an excellent weekend trip, however our Monday morning drive back started like this -
That was a call back to the airlines after they canceled our afternoon flight out of Miami to Chicago. I spent at least an hour of our drive back on the phone trying to have the four of us rerouted so that we could get back. Apparently the snow in Chicago and the rain in Florida were conspiring to try and keep us there, or at least force us to fly back on a flight connecting elsewhere and therefore adding hours to our return time... We finally were able to book ourselves onto a flight out of nearby Ft. Lauderdale.
