Key West with my Bestie

and our dog...
  Last year, on Shawn's birthday, we were in Ft. Lauderdale making the decision to move down here. A year later, we are deciding on a house to buy. And to top it off, I took him to Key West!
We stopped at the beautiful Islamorada for lunch. You must check out Anne's beach and feed some Hungry Tarpon. The water is so colorful.
My hubby looks so handsome eating a Cinderella yogurt. I got cute little napkins and plates. Even brought sparkle candles for the petite cakes, but kinda forgot  about them. I blame it on the views.
  We stayed at this cute 'lil B&B on a quiet street but very close to everything. Having Bully there allowed us to walk and explore the neighborhoods. Shawn took dozes of pics of houses and their front yards to get ideas for ours.
 We were into the flora. Look! Orchids growing wild on trees!

There was oyster happy hours, marina strolling, fish feeding, wave running, and beach time.

When in Key West, you must: Scoot
Go see this buoy. Get serenaded by a gentleman at the turtle museum.
 Stop by the Western Union

 We had a blast. How will I top it next year? Perhaps, a huge partay at our own house.... I've started planning the menu this morning ;)

Bully's new glasses

 Bully's old glasses, shown here, just needed an update. He now prefers a more mature look. He's now more Brooks Brothers, less Warby Parker.

He still is not happy to be photographed. He feels his new specs have to be specially adjusted.
"See?" He says, "They just go straight into my ears."
Well, now it appears that we have to find optometry that specializes in canine head shapes.
Thanks, Bully.

We needed a little laugh lately.

Farewell, Daddy

Virgilio Miranda Reynante 1937-2012

 I wish I could be there with you and Mommy to say good-bye.

I pray that you are resting in peace.  Someday Shawn & I will visit you. We love you.
