Looks like we brought the cloudy skies south with us....

Where are we today ?
        Ok now we are in the Florida Keys, where did the sun go? Is this not sunny Florida? We were in the Orlando area for two weeks and not a lot of sun, Daytona for 5 days, not a lot of sun, now in the Keys and no sunshine at all today. The weather person was totally wrong. 
        Overcast and a cool breeze, 62f (16c), but when you were out of the breeze it felt quite warm, hmmm.
        Oh well still wearing shorts, t shirts and sandals. Much better than the alternative and we are exploring new areas.
        Outside early this morning, walkabout saw these birds below, not sure what they were but looked like vultures just hovering in the currents.
         During the walkabout I checked out the pool and hot tub by the ocean looking awesome but would be better in warmer weather, no problem thou, we like it when its quiet here, not crowded or noisy at all.
nice pool overlooking the ocean
hot tub looks inviting but too cool out for us
interesting looking trees
colourful flowers too
         Took a thirty minute drive to the grocery store, further down the Keys to Marathon another community here with lotsa services. Picked up a few supplies and back home to research a few things in the area. Looks like we may do a trip to Key West tomorrow and check out the sites, its been 19 years since we were there. Got off a cruise ship on our honeymoon, way back when, and checked out the area then.
lotsa room here the resort is not too busy
         Puttered around for the rest of the day, reading and such, then whipped up an easy oven baked casserole. Shake and bake chicken breasts over macaroni, mixed with stewed tomatoes and a few veggies. Perfect for a very tasty supper on an overcast day.
all done, lotsa leftovers too
very tasty, hit the spot
        Now tomorrow should be nice and sunny so the plan is to head south, tour Key West and re-acquaint ourselves with that area. Gotta do that before the Thanksgiving crowds on Thursday.
        So thanks again for dropping by and checkin us out, everyday in our lifestyle is awesome, just some sunnier than others. No matter what,. it sure beats the cold and snow up north! 

Check out the map below to see where we have been this winter

  1. Those birds look like vultures to me, saw some in Virgina last week, they are sure ugly birds. You only have to worry if they are circling above your rig. :)

  2. Oh oh .. I hope that sun certainly does come out. It's a beautiful place to be but those clouds need to go away.

  3. Looks like a great resort...just needs some sun!

  4. Well that weather guy can't be right 100% of the time can he?

  5. Hey George and Suzie ...

    Don't worry, the sun will be back shining on you real soon ... LOL.

    You sure are lucky to be in the Keys, and hope you get some great site-seeing done.

    Take care ... TnT

    1. We always enjoy the sights, no matter what, thanks guys.

  6. I'm guessing the sun will be back before long in the Keys!

    Great looking, simple dinner!

  7. Hope that sun finds you soon George, glad your still warm enough for your shorts though. Like your Shake and Bake idea over the macaroni. Have a great day seeing the sights.

    1. Gotta wear shorts anytime I can, then I feel comfy.. Don't look that great but feel comfy.

  8. We're in central Florida (Tampa bay area) and it's been cloudy here too, which is very unusual.

    While you're in the Keys, try getting a Hogfish Sandwich. Much better than grouper...INMHO.

    Those birds are vultures...they come to Florida in search of snowbirds (kidding)

    1. Well those vultures have found us! Thanks for stopping by.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
