The road to Duck Key

January 18, 2011

Back in October we took a trip to the Florida Keys. We flew in to Ft. Lauderdale and took the very rainy drive down to Duck Key.

The next day was beautiful and sunny. And Duck loved Duck Key.

The next night we took a drive further South to the 7 mile bridge.

Then we stopped for Sangria at this awesome place at the beginning of the bridge.

The next day we headed North to Anne’s beach to do some snorkeling.

If you ever have the change to drive through the Florida Keys down to Key West I recommend you do it. It’s long but we’ll worth the trip and there are plenty of great places to stop along the way.

Snorkeling and Off-Roading in Aruba

July 5, 2010

We had alittle over 24 hours in Aruba. Our plan was to relax and enjoy the beach with the world’s softest sand.

As you have probably figured out by now we don’t sit still very well so after an hour we decided to snorkel out to a small reef in front of our hotel.

Seeing this starfish made the very, very long swim worth it.

After snorkeling we got some pina coladas and watched the sunset.

We found a band playing at the pier a few hotels down so we had dinner, drinks and actually did relax for a bit.

The next morning we got up early to take a jeep tour.

We went to the National Park.

And then went off roading.

Stopped at a Natural Pool to snorkel.

Then the Donkey Sanctuary.

And last stop was the Natural Bridge. (That’s Danny jumping up on top)

Aruba was nice but I’m glad we spent most of our trip in Curaçao. Next we need to check out Bonaire to see which of the ABC Islands we like the best.
