Dear Faithful Floridian Followers:
It was a disappointing day in some ways...we had signed up to do The Fury Ultimate Adventure as a fun day this last day. It is a day on the ocean with lots of fun activities available. We woke and drove to KW with the intention of going, parked the limo even, but then... looking out over the choppy water and watching the wind whip the palm branches...decided it was just too cold and windy!!!
Instead we headed to Starbucks for a coffee, etc. and bought tickets to the Mel Fisher Museum, Truman's Little White House, and the Hemingway House. I learned a lot! We had some really good tour guides. I guess they have had a lot of practice actually. We did make a stop at a sought after burger place called Five Guys...it got a five star rating from the team.
We headed home late afternoon for a "cleaning / packing party". We ate a hodge-podge of what's left in the frig...spaghetti, cheesy scrambled eggs, brownies, chips, cookies, sandwiches,etc...then adjourned until 9:00, our goal for finishing our plump, polish, pack efforts.
At 9:00 we cut into our key lime pies. We had not had a chance to try this very Key West dessert.
We then spent an hour reflecting on the trip...favorite day, something you learned, what you did not like, what you are most proud of, what you learned about yourself, etc.,etc.....it was so fun to hear what the kids had to say. They are an amazing group of individuals and even better as a team....
