Your House Will Likely Sell Quickly According to the Realtors Confidence Index released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), homes continue to sell quickly – on average, they’re selling in just 17 days. As a seller, that’s great news for you.

Garden -or- Cemetery?

Though from a distance it looks like a pet cemetery, I assure you it’s NOT! Upon closer inspection it turns out to be the only one of its kind I’ve seen in the Florida Keys! It’s actually a local seafood restaurant’s own herb garden. Now how’s that for FRESH! “I’ll have the blackened Mahi-Mahi garnished with some of those weeds I saw in your garden outside!” OK, they wouldn’t appreciate that too much! So, I ask you my loyal readers, “Does your local seafood restaurant have its own herb garden?”… I bet...

Going Down The Lazy River

Whether it’s kayaking or canoeing you’re into really doesn’t matter because this place has them both! Seen in the featured photo is another photo, not quite sure where it is… but I know it’s not of the Florida Keys since we don’t have any mountains! In the picture below, the colored canoes & kayaks make a great rainbow-type photo with someone from your group kneeling beside or behind them. I didn’t get the exact price to rent either but assure you all they’re not free. You can find these kayaks & canoes and...

Beach Picnic With A View To Die For!

Though every beach has an ocean view, the type of view is up to you in where you chose to get comfy at. Few times are you able to enjoy such splendor, serenity, peacefulness and seclusion as we did on this given day! Here at the busiest beach in Key West we were alone in our view of the Atlantic Ocean. After our customary bike ride around town, we chose here for a picnic (notice our bike basket doubling as a picnic basket)… and what a GREAT choice it proved to be. Though we weren’t the only ones on the beach, we were the only ones in the view of our picnic table towards the ocean. Life...
