Ride on.


It’s chilly today in the Keys. The high is 71. I know that is warm compared to the rest of the country, but for us it feels chilly! So happy about this cold front because it means no air conditioner! I love saving money. Anyways,today I biked for 60 minutes. 4 out of 6 workouts are done for the week! We had some wind gusts of about 15-30 mph, but I rode just fine!

60 minutes at Bahia Honda.


Taken from my bike or on our hike-20121106-121617.jpgI love the reflection of the bridge in the water.

20121106-121656.jpgSo calm.

20121106-122041.jpgI love this place!

20121106-122051.jpgAfter we rode for 60 minutes, we hiked up to the bridge. I wish I had gotten married here! Love this private podium!

20121106-122101.jpgMaking our way up.

20121106-122203.jpgGreen and sparkles– Doesn’t get any better.

20121106-122219.jpgWas really calm in the channel. Spotted 4 giant spotted sting rays. I mean they were the size of boulders.

20121106-122230.jpgMy husband’s favorite view of the entire park.

20121106-122238.jpgMy favorite shot of the bunch. Something about that green that speaks to my soul.

Had a great morning workout at good old Bahia Honda. I must remind myself to go there every single chance I get.
