Christmas in Key West

We’ve enjoyed being here for the holidays, and the sights and events that go with it. The lighted boat parade was clearly visible from our flybridge. Since the harbor here is a tight space, we watched 25 boats go in and at a time, making for a long parade.

We also went on a trolley tour of lights around the island, while Karen was visiting. Many houses were decked in lights, and the various inns in town did a great job as well. Overall though, Baltimore’s tacky lights win… hands down!

As we stopped in front of one of the houses, the residents came on board to pass out treats…Jello shots! Ho ho ho!

We are enjoying a quiet Christmas here, in between visitors. The weather is beautiful, 85 for a high today, with sun and clouds (although we see that our Baltimore friends are also enjoying balmy temperatures!). This afternoon, we’ll wander over to the Schooner Wharf Bar, and hear one of our favorite musicians play, then round out the night with a dinner of stone crabs and spiny lobster!

Here are more holiday photos. There are many many more lights that I loved, but it’s hard to snap a photo as you’re passing on a scooter!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!!
