Homes for the holidays – Key West Style

How often these homeowners reside in their beautiful homes I do not know.  Year round? Seasonal? Who knows!  Whatever their time it looks like it’s very nice. We were just wandering around trying to make our way back to our hotel when we took a detour from Duval, went along Mallory Square and the cruise ship dock, and somehow ended up on this street.  No idea where we were but I’m sure if I had a map I’d figure it out.  Some of the homes were decorated for Christmas while others were just their lovely tropical selves.

Beautiful colors, palm trees, flowers, the shutters on the windows…I could happily retire here to live in a home like one of these.  Then again, maybe just for fall and winter; I’ve heard it can get very hot and humid in the summer.  So I’ll take half the year in Key West and the other half up north.  Deal 🙂

(P.S. I would still like to ask all of you for help.  The challenge/bet that DH and I have is still going on and I am just 3 away from getting my prize.  I have to get that magic number before the end of 2013.  We’ve agreed on what the prize is but I’m not going to reveal it until I hit my goal.  If you are following – thank you so much – but if you aren’t could you follow or pass this along to someone who might? Help me win, please! Thank you. )
