Holiday Lights – Key West Style

Our Christmas present to each other was a week in Key West, Florida.  It was wonderful to be able to swim in the ocean and go about in shorts and tee shirts in December.  Something that is not done here in the midwest.  And the food? Fresh from the fishermen…good eats!  Key West displayed their holiday spirit on their homes, hotels, bicycles, and shops with beautiful lights and decorations.  I did find it a bit amusing to see palm trees festooned with lights and people wearing Santa hats while walking around in shorts and flip flops, but you go with what’s there, right?

  3. We went to Key West after Christmas a few years ago and really enjoyed it. It was probably our most laid back vacation. Was this the home of the orange iguana?

    I haven’t been to Key West in ages. As much as I enjoyed going there, I never went around Christmas. I’d love to see the place decorated for the holidays. I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves.
