I used to think that writing about Play in Nature was just going to be kids in dirt piles playing and making mud pies. That is not what it is turning out to be here on my Play in Nature site. I find nature and children trying to connect to it everywhere I go. Sometimes it is a kid chasing a pidgeon at the mall parking lot and sometimes it is the child at the aquarium touching a starfish for the first time.
To further illlustrate this point I was just on a Sunset Cruise in Key West, Florida with the folks from Danger Charters. This was the best sunset cruise I have ever been on for so many reasons. One is because they were so nice and child friendly. While we were out there on the water the birds were flying around and the children had a great time watching the gulls and pelicans. Nature is not just animals…………the spectacular SUNSET counts also!
Let me go back to Danger Charters again for a moment. They do a spectacular job! They were rated the #2 Cruise in North America by Coastal Living Magazine. This is an upscale wine cruise with 8 different wines from all over the world. They had fabulous hors d’oeuvres as well as upscale beer and pop for those who didn’t want wine or were too young.
The folks at Danger Charters are fabulous! Friendly, helpful, fun and they really try to make you HAPPY! This is one thing you should absolutely NOT miss if you are in Key West. This Cruise is all about you and your enjoyment of the most spectacular sunsets ever. Key West is all about celebration, and their celebration of Sunsets tops the list. Don’t miss this one!
You might want to know WHY I am going to be writing about Play in Nature from Key West for the next several days. Well it is because you can Play in Nature anywhere and there is so much nature to see here! Tomorrow we are going on a wave runner for 26 miles around the island. All nature all day all the time. We will stop at different beaches along the way.
What a fabulous way to view the natural side of Key West! We are also planning on a sunset cruise and other natural adventures. Check back over the next couple of weeks for some great ideas for nature in the Keys!
Tonight we decided to eat at the Thai Life Floating restaurant. I had seen it listed on the Urban Spoon Website. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/144/1348480/restaurant/Florida-Keys/Thai-Life-Key-West
As we sat there in the breeze we were able to not only eat fabulous food but watch a wide array of birds. I realize folks from here are no longer enamored with Brown Pelicans but for those of us from Illinois they are darn cool!
The resturant is beautiful! Magical even. My daughter Tor and I sat and relaxed and soaked up the warmth of Florida and watched the sun set on the boats in the marina. Such a wonderful day! So here we are and I will be posting from the keys for a while.
