Take a vacation from writing in paradise

If your first love is a tropical paradise, or if you need a vacation from the daily grind, I recommend Key West. Harry and I spent a week there drinking in the sights and sun, the majesty and the peacefulness of the Keys. We left our computers at home in order to better develop our love affair with sunshine.

One of our favorite activities was the WIND & WINE fireworks cruise with Danger Charters on July 4 at sunset. We started in the Gulf and cruised to the Atlantic where we saw the fireworks reflected on the ocean water. Beautiful.

This picture shows the Gulf waters of Key West at the Sunset Celebration where every day hundreds of people gather on the docks of historic Mallory Square to watch jugglers, a sword swallower, tightrope walkers, and flying cats perform.

But alas, we are now home. Reality set in with lost luggage and a brown yard due to Raleigh’s heat and drought. Paradise lost.

I am reposting an entry Key-ping Paradise in your Honeymoon: Unexpected Gifts from Key West linking an essay that Harry and I wrote together about our love and nostalgia for Key West:Key-ping Paradise in your Honeymoon: Unexpected Gifts from Key West
