Vacation Pics...

Hi there!

How's everything in your world?  It's hot hot hot here in NW Ohio.  It was hot in
Key West last week while we were vacationing, but even more hot here...whew!
I have a feeling we are in for a HOT summer!  Thank goodness for air
conditioning!  I'm slowly getting back to the usual here.  I'm still off for the rest
of this week from work, but the house cleaning need my attention.  I cleaned a
neglected closet and garage windows today, dresser drawers, and laundry.
We took time out to watch the fireworks...always fun!  And, I thank God for
our freedom!  A big THANK YOU for all our servicemen who make
that possible!!!  I hope you all have a great 4th of July holiday!

OK,  on to my vacation pics.  We got some very lovely sunset pics that I'd like to share...
One more sunset pic...
Here is the iguana we saw crawling up the palm tree
right outside our hotel room...
Isn't he cute?? :-))

Pic of hubby and me at southernmost point of USA...

Nope, didn't do the parasailing, but it did look fun!
You still with me?

Gorgeous flower...

Hemingway house...

And, there are about 40-50 cats who live at
Hemingway house that are polydactyl, which 
means that some have 6 toes.  They
are darling sweet cats!
One more sunset before saying goodnight...
take care!


  1. I LOVED the vacation photos! Thanks for the kitty pic! And next time you HAVE to go para-sailing! It is so peaceful up there! LOVE the sunsets which are so GORGEOUS in Key West! Now it's back to reality!

  2. Super great vacation pics. Beautiful sunsets, fine work. Glad you are back and hoping you enjoyed every miniute of your trip.
    Happy 4th

  3. Beautiful pictures. It looks like you had an amazing time. I sure would love to visit there myself. :)


  4. Beautiful pictures, Maria! Have a nice and happy 4th of July!

  5. Wow! Maria, these are super photos and I'm glad you shared. The cats are so interesting. Super sunsets, too.
    HOT and DRY is really getting to me. It's been so long since we've had rain and with the temps in the 100 degree range day after day, it is really getting to me.

    Glad you got in the fireworks. Our big fireworks are on the Tennessee River overlooking the bluff but I'm not going this year. It doesn't seem like the 4th on Wednesday and I'm in no mood for it. What an attitude! LOL

  6. Beautiful vacation pics! I sure do not miss the humidity of Ohio!


  7. THanks for sharing these pix with us, Maria! My fave: the cat. :) No surprise there. The sunsets were amazing!

    It's terribly hot here in NJ too. A baking kind of heat, I say!
