Oh hey, I’m back from my summer escape! We had a fabulous time visiting my sister, brother-in-law and niece, 11-month-old baby Kira, in Washington, DC, then headed out to Florida where we spent a few days in Fort Lauderdale and then the Florida Keys. Here are a few pics from our family trip.
We stayed at the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale and spent some extensive time at the pool and the beach, because the temperature was a scorching – and very humid – 95+ degrees, a big change from the gloomy San Francisco July weather we left behind us.
Then we hit the road to the Florida Keys, and vacationed in Marathon, FL, in a charming resort called Tranquility Bay. Hubby surprised us with a beachfront house rental, and waking up to this view every morning was quite spectacular! If you plan on vacationing in the area, I strongly recommend this resort : beautiful architecture, very peaceful and quite, white sand beaches, and the staff is extremely nice [special mention to Otis at the front desk for feeding my caffeine addiction and giving me extra doses of coffee for the room’s coffee maker!]
We also went on a snorkeling expedition. Maya, Inès and I were scared as s**t about a shark encounter [thank you Shark week!] but we only met colorful fishes and a couple of dolphins who jumped out of the water during our boat ride to say hello. Another true magic moment!
How is your summer going? Can you believe we’re only a few weeks away from back to school? :/
