Heading down to Key West proved to be quite the adventure this past weekend! A good friend was celebrating her marriage (Basically just having the wedding reception in KW), and this was good timing for us to head down and enjoy the party. Yes, a pregnant lady in the scorching summer weather in Key West… it was certainly an experience. I enjoyed it but … it’s HOT.
We woke up early on Friday and headed down making a pit stop in Islamorada at the Ocean View. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you will know that not only is Islamorada our favorite Key… it’s also where we got engaged TWO years ago. Can you believe it? I can actually remember sitting down and scheduling my blog posts from that week in Islamorada two years ago. It’s crazy how time is flying right on by.
Ocean View is a divey sports bar with an “inn” connected to it. We just love it. We pulled in for drinks and lunch just for nostalgic purposes. This is the third year we have stopped in and every time we go… it’s the same staff on duty. It’s funny… things in the Keys seem to never change. [Side note: There are a LOT of abandoned buildings or closed up businesses…every time we make the drive down… it’s as if nothing has changed. The same buildings are empty, the same businesses are shut down, nothing has been renovated. It’s funny we go on living our lives back home and return to the Keys and see that everything is the same.]
