Pirates in Paradise

As promised, I finally uploaded some pics from our weekend with the Pirates in Paradise!

We headed toward the Keys around lunchtime...



stopped to have a roadside picnic with a lovely view...





checked into our room at the inn...







had a little cocktail on the balcony...



and then prepared for the Pirate’s Shipwreck Ball....







The next day we explored Fort Zachary Taylor, watched a historical re-enactment, and took in the sights & sounds...



Another picnic lunch on the beach at Fort Zarchary...







The light rain did not dissuade these pirates, no way!



Beren got a lesson from the local blacksmith...





Worn out from all of that pirate revelry, we relaxed in our room for a bit and then had dinner at the port..



watched a holiday parade from our balcony and generally enjoyed the lovely evening. Before heading home on Sunday, we feasted on a fabulous brunch at a quaint little restaurant where the roosters and chickens really rule the roost! This was by far our best meal of the trip; the lobster omelet was worth every single calorie, and the subsequent hours on the treadmill to burn them off!







But first, one more stop at the famous Holiday Isle Tiki Bar!



It was a wonderful weekend and we've already decided that Pirates in Paradise will be a regular event for us..ARRGH!!
