Arriving at Key West and a Sand Art Competition

 We had to leave Miami on Thanksgiving Day, but before we left we had the kids over for a Thanksgiving Breakfast and send off. Of course a Family portrait was in order and then we were off.
It was great getting to visit our Son, Daughter and Grandson for a few days.

 About half way down the Keys it was time for lunch, I don't think we could have picked a better spot just to sit back, have a bite and enjoy the scenery.

 We got into Key West and the Sigsbee Naval RV Park around 3:00 and got set up with a pretty good site. They didn't have one right on the water for us, but...............

 This was pretty darn close, as seen from our door. Just a short stroll to the Gulf of Mexico to watch the world go by, boats, jet skies, and wind surfers.....ahhh the retired life. Looks like we'll be here in our dry camp site for 6 days till we rotate into a full hook up site. It's taken a couple of days to settle into dry camping and all is good now.

 Yesterday we found out about an event downtown, the Key West International Sand Art Competition, being held at a beach on the Atlantic side, so we just had to check it out. Sheryl and I had never seen professional Sand Artist before, it is just amazing to watch them create these sculptures. There were only 6 artist at this event, so it didn't take to long to check them all out, but we stayed for a bit before heading back to our sanctuary and away from the insanity that Key West can be. Here are some of the sculptures I was able to capture, hope you enjoy!!!

It's been a great few days here. We keep looking at our home base weather, 32 degrees each day and are quite happy we made it down here for the winter!!! That's all for now from Sunny and Warm Key West............................see ya next time............................


  1. I'm picturing the beach you were on and wish we were there. Once you settle in to the Keys way of life you won't want to leave.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Oh, we allready don't want to

  2. Got to love KW, wish we were there. Hope the 6 days waiting for a FHU goes fast, sometimes it gets a little hot at night. However long it takes, you can't beat the ability to camp right in KW, a nice bennie for us retired military folks. :c)
