The Key is the Weather

We have had a great, laid back first week in the Keys.  We took walks, rode our bikes and did a lot of reading all while relaxing in the tropical breezes at the Keys' Elks.  We enjoyed eating at outdoor restaurants as it is warm enough for shorts even for Nanc.  The weather has been the best we have experienced for any of our six winters on the road.  The high temps have been from 79 to 82 and the lows have been from 71 to 75.  The ten day forecast is for more of the same:)  It did rain for about 15 minutes one day, but other than that it has been perfect.  One of the great things about the Keys is the sunsets and here at the Elks we have a spectacular place to watch. 
This the what we see from the RV window and where we have spent most of the week. 
Sunset 1/1/13
Sunset 1/2/13
Sunset with Paul fishing. 1/3/13
Sunset 1/4/13
Sunset 1/5/13
Sunset 1/6/13
Sunset 1/7/13
The sunsets are different everyday with some being just average while others are spectacular!!!
This fish was hanging out on the dock.  Not sure what it is.
There are several iguana living around the Elks.  They love the warm weather even more than we do.
The woodpecker is also a local resident.
This white heron was waiting for some scraps from fishermen who were cleaning their catch.
Our first week has been very relaxing and we are looking forward to doing a bit of exploring in the area.
