Key West Trip

This weekend, we took the kids to the Keys for Ryan's birthday. We rented an efficiency which was really nice at the YellowTail Inn. It was fabulous. We had our own beach right outside our door. The kids had a blast on the beach catching crabs and searching for sea stuff when the tide was out. Although we didn't get to catch any fish, we really enjoyed living the lazy life of fishing and strolling in the white sand. Ryan caught a huge conch that was still alive. It was great for the kids to see all the living creatures hiding out in the ocean. I definitely want to go back. On our last day, we drove all the way down to Key West. It was rainy at first but as the day cleared, the Keys came alive. I really enjoyed all the touristy shops and the museums. My favorite store was KnitWits, the only yarn store in the Keys. I bought this wonderful alpaca yarn to make my second Clapotis.

Here, the kids are enjoying themselves on the beach at low tide. How strange it looked when the tide was out.
