Slowly getting back into routine....


I had such a WONDERFUL 3 weeks with my best bud, Debbie.
We traveled, shopped, thrifted, ATE, sewed, and tried all sorts of new things.

One of which was this....


~ fried conch ~
I will have to say - it was delicious.

We ate at a tiny little restaurant - The Hungry Tarpon - on Islamorda in the Keys.


Looks a bit "hole in the wall' but all the reviews were showing 5 star ratings.
It deserved a 5 star rating. Everything was fresh and delicious.

We chose to dine waterside.


They will even cook your own catch.
Can't get much fresher than this....


And...
 for all of you who have never tried Mahi-Mahi (Debbie) because you thought you were eating "Flipper"...
THIS is the dolphin Mahi-Mahi is made from. 
So, you see....Flipper is safe from harm.
Feeling a little better about eating Mahi-Mahi now?
I know Debbie is.

Mmm, I had Mahi-Mahi in Florida and in the Keys and it was good! Didn't know it was such an ugly fish though! LOL

I loved the Keys, exactly my kind of island :)

That looks like so much fun. I have always wanted to visit the Florida Keys. I live in California so it isn't exactly around the corner! It almost looks like acCaribbean country.

Oh I have eaten there! It was so incredible! I didn't remember the name of it because we just stopped on a whim. Thank you for reminding me:)
