Cape Florida Lighthouse

What a lucky day it was when we visited Cape Florida Lighthouse on Key Biscayne. They were just about to lock up the lighthouse for the day, but said that if we made it quick, we could climb to the top. I don’t think we ever climbed a lighthouse faster than this one and practically ran the 119 steps to the top. Melissa doesn’t like the tight spiraling lighthouse steps and chose to wait for us at the bottom.

iFlorida Memories – Part 1

We spent two wonderful weeks in Florida last June, driving across and then south along the Atlantic coast all the way to Key West, then back towards home along the Gulf coast.
It rained almost every day (with the exception of ONE) but thankfully the timing wasn’t too bad and it usually rained when we were driving from one destination to the next.

We saw some lighthouses and climbed to the top of most of them. This is Cape Florida.

We saw the most amazing rainbow that lasted well over an hour! This picture was taken from our hotel room balcony

Of course a slice of Key Lime Pie (or in this case Key Lime ice-cream pie!) is a MUST!

In Destin, Florida I even got a tattoo!! Just a henna tattoo…still too chicken for a real one. After I reassured Sara that it didn’t hurt at all, she got one, too.
