Power boat races

One of my favorite vacations is my annual trip to Key West for the power boat races. This year I went with my good friend Claudia. Boy did we have stories! From the moment we left Bradley Airport in Hartford from the moment we finally arrived home ( a day late) we met all kinds of people (good and bad) and had a great time! The good thing is we kept the alcohol intake to a relative minimum so we were able to enjoy the mornings as well as the nights! Don't get me wrong, we still went to our favorite haunts ... The Green Parrot, Schooners Wharf, Ricks, Sloppy Joes ... but were always home around midnight and were able to enjoy the breakfast our cute little B & B "The Angelina" has to offer. And we found the BEST place to watch the races, Fort Zachery Park. Bought lots of good stuff on Duval St., bicycled around the WHOLE island, chilled on the balcony of our hotel and swam in the cute little pool. Just had a good time. And when we missed our connection in Miami, we were put up in a nice hotel and got to spend the day in South Beach ... an added bonus. Can't wait until next year!
