One of the things that I always love doing while we are at Key Largo is to go to the cat shelter there. As most of you know we brought two cats home with us from that shelter two years ago, Noodles and Munchkin. They have been such a wonderful addition to our family and filled a big void in my heart left by losing our three old cats over a year long period.
It's sunny and bright in the cat area and is air conditioned for their comfort. They are a no kill shelter and the cats live out their lives there if they don't get adopted. Munchie and Noodles brother and sister are still there. I would have loved to have brought this little gray kitty home with us along with her brother. They were just a striking color and I could just imagine what they would look like when full grown.
All the cats were healthy, clean and loving except one that gave me a good swat on the hand!!!
We like to go to the fishing village to look around. There are some shops to browse around in, a place to eat, ice cream shop and lots of boats to look at.
Every Sunday morning the locals have miniature sailboat races. They are remote control and it looks like a lot of fun.
This is a lovely place to visit, there's no doubt about that but it's not where I would want to live all the time even if I could afford it. I guess I am just too used to the woods, snow, lakes, mountains and the way of life we enjoy here in Maine. Yes, we do have cold weather, no we don't have all the fancy stores and restaurants but it is what we love and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. We are close to the mountains and close to the ocean, what more could you want? I love the saying 'bloom where you are planted' and I think that is so true. Make the most of all the things around you, each part of this country has it's own kind of beauty doesn't it?
