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.

It is hard not to be happy in that beautiful setting.
When I saw that I would be dining at Sun-Sun for their Toes in the Sand dinner, I could not help but start singing that Zac Brown song, Toes in the Water. (To myself, of course, as I know that nobody wants to hear me sing.) This led me to referring to the restaurant and menu by the wrong name for a week. Oops.

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
The Saturday evening lineup
We kicked off our Saturday evening with good friends, good food and some good wine. A casual meal on the deck of salads, grilled steaks and chocolate lava cakes was topped off by Champagne (Lanson, Black Label, NV), T-Vine Grenache (2011), Howell Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (2005) and Castelnau de Suduiraut (2003). After conflicting schedules, moves, and life getting in the way, we finally managed to get to have dinner with these friends. And it was good. Continue reading New Additions and Great Meals
Last night the bars of Wilton Manors really rolled out the welcome mat for the 3 Loud Women, and posse. We had quite a nice group of people for our first ever bar crawl, and a good time was had by all. We started at the Village Pub, giving out t-shirts and making new friends. Continue reading Wilton Manors: The Bars

Yes, this chocolate bourbon pecan cake is as good as it looks.
The title of this post was going to be “A Weekend of Eating” but I thought that pretty much recaps every weekend… Nonetheless, this was a particularly good, company-filled, wine drinking, eating weekend. I actually even planned ahead so that the preparations were not too bad. Continue reading So, What Else Is New?
I think that if you are old enough to form sentences, you are old enough to say please and thank you. All. The. Time. I also think that if you tend to ask for things and not use those oh-so-easy to get out words, then you are a jerk. If you are a four year old, you get a pass and can be reminded. If you are a full-fledged adult, you have no excuse, so either be polite or shut up. Does that make me judgmental? Continue reading Say Please, Dammit
That is a good beer!
When I hear “World of…” followed by anything food or drink related, I always think of Willy Wonka and the factory where everything is edible. What World of Beer lacks in flowing rivers of beer throughout, they make up for in selection. Continue reading World of Beer, Key West
