Curry Hammock State Park in the Florida Keys

A year ago, a group of our friends all decided to go to the Florida Keys in November. Reservations in a state park in the Keys are very hard to come by but we we all got on our computers when the dates opened in the reservation system and within minutes of each other, all scored reservations at Curry Hammock State Park. Not only did we score reservations for the same time, we got sites all together! This was going to be so much fun :)

We all arrived at Curry Hammock on Monday, Oct 28. The weather couldn’t be better. It has been mid 80’s, sunny and breezy the entire time we’ve been here up until today. The water has been warm and we’ve done our fair share of floating in the water on our tubes and mattresses.

We’ve enjoyed many sunrises and sunsets. Even an eclipse!

We walked and biked and

One night, we went to the famous Sunset Grill for dinner and the sunset.


We had a great time in Key West on Halloween :)

We even got a picture of Rick in front of “his” place :)

We went deep sea fishing and caught some nice Snapper.

Today it rained. It was a nice down day and gave us all a chance to catch-up on mundane normal things like cleaning, grocery shopping and blog writing :)

Oh wait! The rain has stopped and the game board is up in Bill and Nancy’s screen room next door :) Time to leave you with one more glimpse of paradise before I go out to join the group.
