In August, 2004 we took a trip to Key West. That is where the "somber" photo came from. The weekend after we were there was the first hurricane of the year and the island was evacuated. The journey down still would have been worth it had we been a week later. The pictures in this post are from our trip down. There will be more to come, I assure you. You do like to see other people's vacation photos don't you???
And last, but not least, a mere 3 yards from our wary footsteps, was this happy feller. He seemed rather interested and came pretty much straight for us. As you can see, we lived to tell the tale, but did not leave before getting one of my favorite photos from that trip.
