Latitude Adjustment



 There is nothing like spending a couple of days in Key West to make you long for a latitude adjustment. . . the laid back lifestyle filled with sun-drenched days, beautiful sunsets, southern charm & Caribbean flavor~   



 At the peak of summer, the average high is 89° F with an ocean breeze blowing across this 4 mile by 2 mile island & views of azure waters.


Visit and you’ll be tempted to. . .

    I haven’t been to Key West for over 30 years, but it looks like the essentials are still all there. It’s a good thing we have finally got the sun over on this coast or this gorgeous post might have put me over the edge – I’d be packing a bag and heading for those latitudes!

    That was great fun, I guess you are sleeping in that T every night?

    I think you’re right! I’d never want to return!!

    LOVE that t-shirt!!! Cute post!
    All the years we lived in FL (almost 10) we never got down to the Keys. ~~see Rettabug pounding her head against the desk~~ *big sigh* Maybe someday………….

    As your photos show, Key West has spectacular sunsets. One of Hemingway’s cats?

    Sounds and looks like my sort of place with such fantastic sunsets. :)

    My husband’s cousin’s favorite place was Key West. When he died suddenly, his wife and young children took his ashes to rest eternally in Key West. I can see by your gorgeous photos what the draw must have been for him.

    Was there last Thanksgiving. One of my favorite places!

    Beautiful photos of a beautiful place. The sunsets there are amazing. Wish I had one of those T-shirts! My husband has a Hogs Breath T-shirt and wears it all the time.

    Hi i am new here, thank you very much for those amazing, vivid photos, as if we also took the trip.

    Ohhh, lovely! I’m planning to visit the Keys in October and I can’t wait!!

    It’s been 20 years since I’ve been in Key West….the first time was when I was 12 and had landed there on a Q Airways direct flight from Havana to Key West and one of my cousins was the pilot….My grandmother and I stayed at the home of old Conchs friends of hers…. The last time I had been in the States (Atlanta) before that time, I was 4 years old and could not remember much from the early trips, so my 12 year old self was not impressed with Key West as I thought it looked a lot like what I had left behind at home ;-) ….how times change….I love Key West now…it’s a fun place.

    You have some fantastic pictures here! I was in the Keys a few years ago and loved it. Great memories. Wish I had found the Tee shirt!!

    I definitely need an adjustment & this latitude would suit me down to the ground! Love the photos – such an array!

  16. July 6, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    It’s BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE the pictures. Wow!

  17. July 6, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Lovely shots, Mary! Felt like I’ve been on a tour myself! :)

  18. July 6, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    Wonderful photos! We visited there several years ago, and plan to go back, but never in the summer! Way too humid for these two Tucsonans!

    What an amazing place to visit! I visited once while on a cruise. I love that you ended the post with a t-shirt that says it all.

  20. July 6, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    That looks perfectly wonderful right now!

    Always has been on my wish list of places to visit and me born in Miami – how close is that!!? Getting there from Northern Wisconsin now would be more of a challenge.

    Lovely photos!

  23. July 7, 2011 at 12:09 am

    Yeah. Okay. I could TOTALLY use one of those. Not the T-shirt, but the get away. Where can I get one?

  24. July 7, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    AHHH! Sounds delightful! :)

  25. July 10, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    breath taking shots, love the cat AND THE SUNSET IMAGE THE BEST.

    I love the photos of Key West! I think I’ve been there once when I was a kid on a family cruise. Looks like you had a great getaway :)

  27. July 15, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    I have never been to Key West! It is so neat looking! I love all the texture and color and fun that seems to permeate everything there!

    Thanks for linking.

    I feel like I had a mini vacay!
