For years Michele and I have talked about going on a vacation for our 40th birthdays. I gotta admit, I never thought we would actually be able to pull it off. Last May I found an "awesome deal" through Cru Con Cruise Outlet and we decided to go for it! We booked a 5 day, 4 night cruise to the Bahamas!! Even better it was on the Norwegian Sky where they are doing a trial run of a 'all booze included' cruise! Woot, woot!! We went two days beforehand and spent the first full day in Key West. It was quite a drive, but oh, so worth it!
Our hotel was two blocks off the Hollywood Beach Boulevard. It was small but clean and had everything you needed, including a kitchen!
We found the shops that mom and I went to for my 35th birthday. Now I forget what Key this was! But it was one of the first ones.
We had the best seats in the house and very generous rum punches. Yum!
One of my favorite places - we had a drink here but it was quite crowded.
The one place I wanted to go to since I had never been there was Fort Zachary. So glad we found it! It is a beautiful hidden gem of a state park.

We were back to the hotel by midnight. I got up early the next morning to watch the sunset and it was amazing!
We left our hotel by 9:30 to head on down to the cruise port! More to follow!!
