Trippin’ On The Keys

 

Mom and dad waved ‘so long’ to Miami and headed past the airport….again.  I guess all roads lead towards the airport.  This time heading down the Keys.

miamist                               miamibeachsmmaimisunsetsmThey started out at 7am so they could reach Key West in plenty of time to see the sights before driving halfway back to Miami to catch the plane at 8am the next day.

kalicroppedWhat, they went past the airport, again?  How boring…I’m glad I wasn’t there.

Dad put on his GPS but the entire way down the Keys was straight.

They went over bridges to the next Key.  In the distance was the old bridge.  The old bridge looked very well-built and all of a sudden a section would be gone…                                                                             oldb1      The picture with the section missing has mom’s reflection on the glass so we chose not to use that one.

There first stop was for lunch and a look about on Key Largo.                                               cafe I never saw a Bail Bond place that also had a private investigation agency in it.

bbHey, I can’t see a private investigation agency!

closeMuch better viewing.  Mom said she was terribly impressed.  They finished up and were on the road again.

They finally arrived at Key West….mom was ready to strangle someone….she is not the sitting patiently type.  She wanted to go to Hemingway’s House and see all of the polydactyl cats.  Dad was cursing at the peeps pedaling their bikes, driving mopeds and just plain walking all over the road.  They needed a break.

Mom said seeing all the 6 toed kitties would be all the break they needed.                                                      a31A peep gathering.

Mom and a cat by the name of Walt Disney hit it off and walked the grounds together.

cemetaryHere is the list at the cemetery of kitties that have left Hemingway House for good.  They all earned their wings and have gone to kitty hunting/playing grounds..

The second half of this post will pop up Monday.  This post seems to be rather wordy for mom so she’s giving everyone time to absorb the info.                                            Kali and Shoks

Till Monday.

 

 

Good-bye Is Such a Hard Word to Say

You sure that everything is in your bag? Don’t forget anything Bashful.  We loved your visit and you are leaving with two great friends.  Willow and Sky take good care of each other and enjoy Georgia.  It’s never cold like here and Bashful’s mom said she’d help you become a Rocky Herbalist, Sky.                                                        rocks and thingsMom and dad will drive you to the airport.  Have a safe flight my friends.  Aww…Sky wipe away that tear.  We’ll talk and mom says they’ll be going down that way in the winter.  You haven’t seen the last of us.                                                          There they go Kali, winging their way to Georgia.  I feel kinda sad. *Waves at the plane*                                                             C’mon Shoks let’s get some nip and relax.  I could chase you around the house Kali.  No, thank you Shoko.  Maybe when you learn to retract those claws.                                                     Hey, Cow-Kitty move over.  Two sad gals comin’ through.  I hope this works Kali.                                               

 

 

 

Shoko Does Paris

What a weekend…Cat Scouts offered us a trip to Paris. This was done through Sammy’s Travel Group, we left Saturday morning. There were lots of us. Sammy of One Spoiled Cat masterminded the entire trip. I mustn’t forget his skilled crew, Raz of Friends Furever and Gracie of Goodness Gracie

There I am! Right in the middle.

I will only be talking about the things I did as there were so many events and activities on this prized weekend.

Einstein…my guy,and I, had tons of fun from hang gliding off the Eiffel tower to walking around the gorgeous palace at Versailles.
Einstein and Shoko handgliding

We managed to find time to ourselves and walked along this ever so quaint rue in Paree. Einstein and Shoko on a small Paris st

Before we left for the airport to go home…Einstein and I had a picnic along the river.

Our time in Paris was over so we headed to the plane.

We had a ball.
