I realized that I had lived my whole life in Florida but I had never been to The Keys. I planned a road trip for my mother and I as well as Sue, my mothers best friend since high school.
Sue and my mother on the patio outside The Blond Giraffe Key Lime Pie Factory.
Bridge on the Overseas Highway.
We got out to admire the view and my mother spotted wild manta rays.
My mom on the dock ouside of our hotel room.
Catch of the day: a beautifully painted wooden fish.
Breakfast slice of key lime pie with a view.
Uninhabited island along the highway.

Ended The Keys the way it began: with a stop at The Blond Giraffe.
