Sunset sail with Danger Charters... always a good time.
The other evening, I went on a sunset sail aboard Danger Charters with a friend, as she was covering it for a new magazine. Being her “plus one” I was instructed to get contact information for everyone she had in a photo, so she could get their consent for publication. Continue reading Honeymoon in Paradise
Look how nicely my nails match my drink!
I admit it: I usually get my nails done on the mainland. After a series of bad manicures at several places around the island, I thought it was easier to avoid getting them done at all rather than having them chip, peel or crack within day. But then I went to Nailtini. Continue reading Nailtini, Key West
Yes, there are all sorts of beautiful things outside - the beach, the pool, etc - and I took a picture of the coffeemaker.
I am wrapping up the series on my awesome time at the Reach and Casa Marina with a short recap of both properties. I had never stayed at either one, and I was impressed with both resorts, but each for different reasons. Both hotels have similar features in the rooms, and one of my favorites is the Nespresso machines. The ability to have a good coffee at the touch of a button is fabulous. Continue reading The Reach Resort and Casa Marina, Key West
Yes, the hut on the right is my hut. (This is the view from the balcony)
I interrupt the regularly scheduled food discussion to take a breather. Relax. Chill out. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ocean breeze (or your office a/c. Whatever.) Inhale the scents of lavender aromatherapy oil. Continue reading Spa Al Mare, Casa Marina, Key West
We chose the last seating at Azur’s now-famous Bubbles and Madness brunch during the Key West Food and Wine Festival. That way, we could go straight from brunch to Duval Uncorked, which my liver did not think was such a great idea. We met friends at Azur and although the last seating was quieter than earlier ones, madness ensued. Continue reading Bubbles, Madness and Duval Uncorked
The Grand Tasting is one of the signature events at the Key West Food and Wine Festival. This year it was held at the Sculpture Garden in front of the Waterfront Playhouse. The weather was typical for south Florida in January, meaning clear skies, cooler temps and the perfect weather to hang outdoors. Continue reading Key West Food and Wine Festival: The Grand Tasting
Key West Food and Wine Festival kick off party
Last night was the kick off of the Key West Food and Wine Festival, and there is no better place to do that than on the sand at the Southernmost Hotel on the Beach. Tables with wine and food are set up as guests mingle and the sun sets. Continue reading It Ends With Grease
This is just a little bit of the fun we had last year!
It is the end of January (I know, I can hardly believe it myself), but you know what that means? The best event of the year in Key West is taking place this weekend. If you haven’t gotten tickets yet, get off your butt and get them now. Use code FKG for a discount. The Key West Food and Wine Festival is shaping up to be the best ever. Continue reading Key West Food and Wine Festival, 2013
Yep, we hiked up one side, across the top and down the other side.
Although I was feeling pretty lazy and didn’t want to do too much on our trip, I had booked the Eco-tour with Adventure Antigua, which promised a nearly full day on the water. We made our way off the Seabourn Quest, down the pier and across the wooden dock to where the 52 foot power catamaran was waiting. The walk took about 3 minutes and was very easy to find. Continue reading Adventure Antigua: The Eco Tour
My last post left off with the tales of wonderful lunches and snacks by the pool, but I did not yet recap the amazing dinners onboard the Quest. The Quest has four different dinner venues: The Restaurant, which is the main dining room, The Colonnade, which most evenings becomes a sit down restaurant, The Patio Grill, for super casual, by-the-pool dining, and Restaurant 2, a chic, modern restaurant with trendy food. (Not so creative on the naming… but the food was delish!) Continue reading Seabourn Quest: The Food, Part II
