I’m just dreaming of Blue Heaven…


Seriously, heaven on a fork! And Key West perfect: quirky outdoor patio, live music, roosters & cats roaming, unbelievable food & friendly, funny staff. Long wait, unless you’re there early.

and bakery fresh toast

Best I ever had, and I do love cheesy grits.

why did the rooster cross the road?

Look at this gorgeous, wild rooster. Yup- running crazy in the wilds of Key West.

Our first morning Kyle runs into our room sputtering, “Er, er, er, ERRRRR! What is that? What is that?’ At 5:15am it can only be one thing. One of the many roosters roaming Key West. Apparently, this particular rooster enjoys roosting outside the window of the little house we rented for the week. We learned that roosters, hens & chicks travel as family groups, scoff at cars, bikes and other vehicles, but run blindly if a tourist is attempting to take pictures. But we just can’t help ourselves.

We hope he enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed him. We even miss him, back here at home, where we get to sleep late every day. Well, almost until 6am, anyway.
