Vacation In Key West

Nathan's leave for The Keys was approved in April, even though he started a new job in July. I was able to finally let the Tyner family know that we could join them in The Keys for the first week of July planned vacation. Everyone was pretty excited including me! Nathan and I have never been down to Key West so we were looking forward to spending a vacation in a place that we have heard nothing but wonderful things about. It is also in a state that we enjoy/like. You will notice from other posts in the blog that Nathan and I have lived in Pensacola, Jacksonville and have visited Orlando, Gainesville, Miami and Port Canaveral. 

While in Key West we:
- walked Duval Street,
- hung out in Mallory Square,
- Para-sailing for me,
- Jet Skiing and a Jet Pack Adventure for Nathan,
- time at the pool at the Hyatt Beach Resort,
- Smather's Beach,
- 4th of July BBQ at Hyatt Windward,
- dinner at Abbey Road,
- a couple of hours checking out NAS Key West,
- a run along S. Roosevelt Blvd. (both Nathan and I),
- dinner at Abbondanza Italian Restaurant, and
- Southern Most Point.

I am sure you all are looking at this list and asking, what, went for a run? Yes Nathan and I went for a run while in Key West. It helped me destress and relax and it was cooler in FL than it was in VA. It was in the 100's and humid here at home. It was in the 90's and just hot in FL. We did go for a run in the morning when it was 80 degrees.

 The Hyatt Beach Resort was beautiful. Our suite or room had 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen/dining room combo, living room, balcony and washer and dryer. Mom and dad were able to get two suites. We cooked a couple of meals to feed everyone at the Resort so we didn't need to go out to eat every night. We even cooked out on the grills at the Resort on the 5th. Nathan and I were impressed with the Hyatt Beach Resort and with Key West. We think if you are going to consider a vacation in Key West you need 2 weeks. Nathan and I would like to go back down some day. I am not going to post any pictures here on the blog. I did post pictures on Facebook if you would like to see them.
