More than anything, my best friend always knows what I need, and this time she was right on point. A trip to the Florida Keys. The place that was popular before Miami and the south most part of America was just a short drive away. With only 16 hours notice, I packed my bags and soon enough we were on our merry way.
We left Miami at about 5pm, just enough time to hit rush hour traffic, yet still make it on time for dinner. When we eventually arrived in Isla Morada, we had a typical “Keys” dinner. Yes, fish. Now, to be honest, I LOVE fish, but that’s only when it’s the $65 item on the menu. I’m not really a huge fan of $12 fried grouper, but clearly I’m alive (although I’m surprised it didn’t kill me).
The next morning we were out early to go lobstering.
Lob•ster•ing, noun: the sport or business of catching lobster
So, if you haven’t already guessed, I’m a huge princess and what does a princess love more than lobster? Louboutins and Chanel, yes, but not much else. So obviously I was very excited to patrol the deep seas for some gorgeous lobster.
Too bad that we did not even find one. #LOL (Lots Of Lobster) Just kidding, but really it was a bit of a disappointment. I mean, I was really looking forward to dinner, but I guess skinny is cooler than lobster anyway.
Soon after we docked, we were back on our way to Miami. It was a short trip, but well worth it.
We had too much fun and got to experience the outdoors #nature in a fun and breezy way. And let’s be real here, I’m not an outdoorsy person, but this trip was beyond dope. (I felt very Cher from Clueless right there 😋) Even though the trip was amazing, I’m not sure if I would do it again. Netflix got very mad at me for abandoning for more than 24 hours.
I look forward to hearing how all of your summers have been! And here are some pictures below <3
