Key Largo.



After our two days stay in Miami Beach we went for a short stay to Key Largo, first of the fabulous Florida Keys. The Keys are indeed fabulous and oh so beautiful. I have a link here to Key Largo but if you want to learn more about the Keys just Google Florida Keys.

Maybe some of you remember that movie with Humpfrey Bogart and Kathryn Hepburn “Key Largo” that was filmed on this island. And maybe you remember that boat the African Queen? I made a photo of that same boat, much smaller than you would have thought.: ))








Reflection of the harbor on the bottom of the photo.




And a few more photo’s of the Diving Capital of the world where you find flowers everywhere.



Also here on this island we ha a wonderful time, nice and warm  and blue skies every day. What else could we want.

Lieve Riet,

Wat ben je op prachtige bestemmingen geweest! Dat zwembad ziet er heel mooi uit. Het lijkt mij heerlijk om daar op een handoekje naast te liggen in de zon :-)

Fijne avond!

Heerlijk al deze fantastische beelden lieverd, op deze manier
ben ik ook een beetje daar
aanwezig, hihihi
Ongelooflijk dat prachtige weer
wat jullie continu hebben gehad.
Dat maakt alles nog veel en veel mooier. En dan die bloemenzee die
je overal tegen komt.

Werkelijk PRACHTIG!!!
Letterlijk een onvergetelijke vakantie hebben jullie gehad.

Veel liefs,

Mooi die zonnige foto's in deze donkere tijd van het jaar. Het zal lekker zijn geweest daar. Het eerste wat me te binnen schoot bij het lezen van je titel was inderdaad Humphrey Bogart. :-)
Maak er een mooi weekend van!

It looks so beautiful, sunny and hot there Riet. It's so cold here right now so these photos cheer me up. Have a great weekend.

I've only been to Key West...Key Largo looks great!

Willy said...

Geweldige plek om te verblijven. Je foto's geven het prachtig weer.In Key Largo speelde HB samen met Lauren Bacall. In The African Queen was het HB met KH. Op zo'n grijze dag zou je willen dat je even daar kon zijn. Fijn weekend, lieve groet

Nou dat is zeker een klein bootje, zo zie je maar dat film de dingen groter kan maken dan het is. Mooie post.

The Florida Keys are amazing and I love these photos you have taken of Key Largo. I am so thrilled to be able to see the different things you experienced there in FL dear Riet.

I so enjoyed your lovely e-card dear friend. You certainly blessed me when you sent it.
much love...

Florida is always prettier seen by you photographic eye !

Jeanne said...

Good morning Riet, We have been in Florida almost two weeks and today we are heading home. Our time here has been wonderful, which included a short Disney Cruise. My last three posts are all about the cruise.

All of your photos and memories of your stay in Florida are all so familiar to me. I know I have mentioned we were raised in Miami from the time I was 10 years old. Over 57 plus years of my life. Key Largo was a place we visited often over the years. However, I never saw the boat from the movie African Queen. It is a movie fave of mine and I am surprised at the small size of the boat as well. I'm glad your vacation was so wonderful. So are you photos.

Wishing you happy times getting into the Christmas season.
Hugs, Jeanne

It does look like a fun time! I love that shot of the Key Largo II from the back side. Beautiful blue waters.

I love the Keys too. (Not Key West, it's too weird, a once-in-a-lifetime is enough place)...but the rest of the Keys are fabulous and we loved spending time there.
