(225) Key West - bikes, beach, birthday

Today we decided to rent bikes to explore the island and head to Fort Zachary Taylor State Beach.

Vacation 2011

We HAD to go to Zachary Taylor State Beach... Why? In honor of THE Zachary Taylor, Kevin's first beloved bulldog (the furry one between Kate and Connor).

Riding cruisers around was great fun, but MAN was it HOT! And don't forget HUMID. I was sweating buckets. I kept thinking of Kevin (and others) who served his mission in Florida. I couldn't imagine wearing layers of clothing - including a stinkin' tie - and riding around all day! I got to ride around in not much more than a bathing suit with a large Diet Coke (in Circle K's new styrofoam Thirstbuster cup, no less!) and it was still rough.

And finally, to celebrate my birthday, we dined at a great Cuban restaurant - El Siboney. Garlic chicken - YUM. Cuban Mix sandwich - YUM.
