Camping in the Keys

We got to camp in this cute little campground on Gieger Key, just about 10 miles from Key West. It was pretty small, but they had a little restaurant with a steel drum player, and our trailer backed right up to the ocean! It was fun to have a relaxed day with no where to go, and no driving. I took a vacation from cooking, so we had key lime pie (of course) and watermelon for lunch!
We spent the day snorkeling with the kids, and found so many awesome treasures! I've never found so many wonderful, beautiful things at the beach! The girls were so excited every time they found a shell or a starfish, and Brandon helped them dive deep enough to pick up the treasures themselves. I think we were far enough away from public beaches, that the waters here hadn't been picked over. They also found an old sunken treasure box, which they pulled out and discovered it was actually an old crab pot, with a lobster and some shells inside. Of course, I didn't remember to take a photo of it. They felt like real pirates, discovering treasure. In the photo with us is one of the little friends we made!
