Christmas in Key Biscayne

This is the second of two new postings since departing Cocoa, FL. Be sure to check out both.

Now, the title of this second post might not mean much to most. But to us it means 80 Degrees, mostly sunny and a slight breeze swaying the palm trees on the very white sandy beaches.

We rented a car and drove down to Key Biscayne to celebrate Christmas with Norm's sister, Joyce. What a blast! We had a great visit which included great "catching up", lots of food and wine and of course wonderful weather. On Christmas Eve, Joyce treated us and her good friends Pal and Mary to a fantastic steak dinner at Morton's. It was Mary's birthday too. Then on Friday Pal treated us to pizza at Archie's--one of our favorites. It was Indian on Saturday and breakfast at the golf club on Sunday. Needless to say we all had a "food hangover". In between the pig-outs, we chatted, laughed and played canasta. Vicki was the overall winner; but, it was nip and tuck all the way. So, a roust, it was not. You know, by the "hair on her chinny, chin, chin"! Oops, I mean no hair. No, there is no hair there.

Joyce had the apartment decorated for Christmas, including the "money tree". It kept growing with dollar bills that will, we're sure, find their way to the church offering. Or, to replenish the wine cellar! Same thing?

We are now on a diet--again!

Joyce lives in a great condo. It is situated right between the ocean and a county park. The grounds are lush, the pool is a comfortable temperature, and the sandy beach is like a fine powder.

Iguana's live on the property. Can you find "Waldo" in this tree?
