A Day On Key Largo {Florida}

One of the best part of this summer's vacation was our trip to Key Largo and Islamorada where we went snorkelling in the most beautiful water {Snorkelling Pics}, swam with one of my everyone's favourite animals, took a boat trip, and wandered around a small wildlife park.

We left Naples early in the morning with a full tank of gas and empty tummies. What does that mean? Sweets time! We stocked up the car and got on the way.

The first place we hit when we arrived was Theatre of the Sea. My two travelling companions were very patient with me while I took 100s of pictures everywhere we went.

Such a pretty place

We remembered this little guy from the last time we were there years ago. He had part of his shell broken out in the wild and needed to be rescued - he swims around with his own personalised life jacket.

This is his buddy

Love parrots! Love the colours!

Camera shy!

A certain someone was so upset there were no alligator sightings all the way on the slightly deceitfully named Alligator Alley. All eyes were on the side of the road for the 70 mile journey and not one gator spotted. To make sure there were no tears, we met this guy:

And here are some of his miniature buddies

After a busy busy day, it was time to go home. I stopped at the gas station and let the two of them go in and get some sweets. You should have seen what came back out.
I also think both feared for their lives in that gas station - maybe they thought the BIG GULP and giant packet of Cheetos were going to be their last requests.
Needless to say, everyone made it out alive, including the giant sized drink and obscene packet of cheetos. 
With orange stained fingers and I am guessing full bladders, we arrived back to Naples late that night and were ready for bed.

One of the most awesome days in a long time!
