The Florida Keys and Miami

A couple days ago we got to Key West. It’s really hot here. Guess what else? We went snorkeling again, and it was better than last time because we did it all day long! There were all kinds of fish like red fish and pink fish, blue fish and green fish.

We also went on a bike ride and went swimming. The bike ride was really fun! On a different day we went to Mallory Square. There were lots of street performers. My two favorites were 1) a guy juggled knives and torches, and 2) a guy who had a dog that did cool tricks. There were also things like cats that jump through flaming hoops, and metal (or so said to be metal) men.
Then we went to Mel Fisher’s Museum. There was lots of gold and silver there. I got a silver (fake) doubloon and a treasure chest. Now I’ve told you everything we’ve done except for school, which of course we “can’t” forget.

Hello, yesterday we went snorkeling. It was more fun than I’ve had in a long time! I saw hogfish, parrot fish, conch, and at least 20 barracuda. The barracuda were almost as big as the halibut in Alaska! The parrot fish had beautiful colors like lavender and electric blue. The reason there were so many fish there was because it was a coral reef. This trip was one of the highlights in our great adventure.

We left that campground and then we went to South Beach. There we met up with our friends Judy and Pascal. Their kids’ names are Luc and Leah. We played in the water and went surfing. It was lots of fun.
Then we went to the Tio’s house. Their grandkids came over and played with us.

The campsite we were at had lots of cool things. They had putt-putt golf, regular golf, baseball, basketball, a water park, and tennis. But then we left and went to a Wal-Mart parking lot. Today we’re going to a snorkeling place. Wish us luck!
