Sun, key lime, crispy fries, and threatening storms in Key West

I have loved key lime pie for a good twenty years. I love sour. I love sweet. I like brightly colored food. Despite such love, I hadn’t made it yet to Florida’s Key West. That is not until this past weekend. And it was a most wonderful quick trip. It wasn’t spontaneous. It wasn’t planned. That is my type of trip.As soon as we got to the hotel, I was handed a glass of champagne. Then, they brought me two mango mai tais at the same time. I chuckled and noted I couldn’t drink all that. The server shrugged, squinted, and laughed. That was how the trip was going to go.I enjoyed my key lime pies. But didn’t get to eat dessert at all three daily meals. I was saddened by that. I truly believe breakfast should start with dessert. And while I liked my key lime pues, I loved all the french fries I got there. Go figure. They were an extra dose of crispy just the way I like it. What about Key West leads to such divine fries? I have no idea. But I wish I had some more.I also relished in the fact that there were a multitude of quick thunderstorms. I love summer storms. And, I love rainbows. And, I caught a most beautiful rainbow on my last morning there. I’m taking it as a sign of things to come.And, while it was very hot down in Key West. It was actually slightly cooler than New York. I had escaped to the Keys to cool down. That was quite bizarre. But I thoroughly enjoyed the sun, sunrises and sunsets. Everyday, I stood at the window to catch it all.Every once in a while you need to purposefully connect with the universe. And, the Keys are a great place to do so. Onwards, to the next adventure.
