TBF in Key West

Seriously, best week ever. My family went on a Caribbean cruise - basically a week of sun, seafood and strolling. First stop, Key West, where Mr. BF and I visited Hemingway's house. Sure, it was amazing to see where the Nobel Prize winner lived and wrote. But let's be realistic - Mr. BF and I really went bananas for the polydactyl cats. Apparently, Mr. Hemingway was given a six-toed cat by a ship's captain (how cool is that?) and became enamored with the animals. His beautiful home on the corner of Olivia and Whitehead is now filled with descendants of this cat, about half of which are polydactyl.

See a collection of my Hemingway cat shots over on the TBF Tumblr page! In the meantime, I'll be going through all my photos and remembering the sun and sand...

  7. ahhh, SO JEALOUS! A week of sun and sand sounds absolutely, postively perfect right now. Especially since Boston decided that too much sun wouldn't be good for us and went all cold and rainy again. :p

  8. Seriously, everyone, look how GREEN it is! And, apparently it really never gets super hot in Key West, they top out around 89/90 degrees...I think I'm smitten.
