Kids arrive from Connecticut

Up at 3:30 am, after an hour  in the car, zzzzzzzzzz
They left the house at 3:30 am! The goal was to reach Key West before dark. Last year they came in around 10:30 or so, not so good. Unfortunately, this involved getting up at 3:30 am in order to catch the first plane out from Hartford, CT. They flew to Ft Lauderdale and rented a car for the drive to Key West. After an hour in the car, natural inclinations too hold and they all fell asleep (see photo).

They got in at 4:30 pm and all are tuckered out but happy to be in the warm weather. It was 14 degrees when they left with a 20 kt wind out of the north, what a change! We have to get used to cooking for 7 people with one teenager, what an appetite! We'll probably just chill out tomorrow and then look at some serious exploring, the kids are eager to see Key West.
