For the last week of my spring break, my family and I went down to Florida to visit with grandparents and friends.
For the first few days, we spent time in Palm Beach and Delray with family. The Thursday after we arrived, we headed to the Surfside Diner on the island of Palm Beach for lunch and delicious milkshakes.
On Friday, we went to the Everglades for an airboat tour with Captain Mike, who had given us tours in the past. We saw many alligators, waterlilies, and a wide variety of birds.
On Saturday, we drove down for 4 hours to Key West to meet friends. Saturday night, we walked down to Mallory Square to watch the amazing street performers. On Mallory Square at sunset, you can find everything from crazy frenchmen with cats jumping through fire to guys simultaneously juggling torches and daggers on unicycles. From Mallory Square, we walked to the Rooftop Café where we enjoyed our dinner watching the end of the sunset.
Sunday was spent biking around the streets of Key West, exploring some of our favourite stores from past trips and discovering new places to visit in the future. We had lunch at Turtle Kraals and stopped at La Crêperie for dessert. On the way home, we biked and piked up dinner from Eaton Street Seafood Market and the island's best, meringue-overloaded key lime pie from the bakery at Blue Heaven.
