Scenes from the Keys

We spent a quick 6 nights in the Keys…

Key largo~

Not nearly enough time…but we saw a bit more than we did nine years ago when we were here.

I was sooooo very happy to discover huge family groups of snails on one of our walks on Key Largo.

So..one early morning while in Key Largo..

Our precious young friends…we call the Kids…who happen to be most astounding bird and nature guides…woke up early and drove over from Miami to show us around.

They wanted us to see the

Key West quail dove..

and so we headed to Long Pine Key State Park to be there when the park opened at eight.

Five minutes or so later…

Angel had the bird..

We had great looks at the male and short looks at the female.

Until Mariel found the male again.
