Full Moon Rises over Water as the Sun sets West
This beach house was the focal point of our vacation this year!! As soon as we pulled up and began to unload our suitcases, we were greeted by key deer! They were so cute with those big brown eyes just watching our every move from no more than 2 feet away. We weren't there 2 minutes before I had the camera out making everyone pose with the deer! About 20 minutes after that, we were sitting in adirondack chairs facing the most beautiful scenery - teal waters, sail boats crossing - relaxing while the breeze was blowing through our hair! This house is right on the water!! Words can't begin to describe the natural beauty that is this habitat!! Each morning we took the kayaks out at the crack of dawn, before the others woke, to get in a little alone time, breathtaking sunrises, and fishing activitiy!! The water is so still early in the day and it makes for an easy paddle in and out. We kayaked on both front side and back side of the house in the reserve as well! One morning we kayaked out a little ways from the house and we could see the Bahia Honda Bridge! I can't believe how centrally located this home is! Each day the key deer greeted us and yearned to be petted and fed some leaves from their natural habitat that they just couldn't reach! One deer even tried to sit in my son's lap to be held while he was relaxing in a chair by the beach! We went to Bahia Honda State Park twice while we were on vacation and it was literally 5 minutes down the road, and it is a really nice place for snorkelling and swimming and sunbathing, and the giftshop is really nice too, and we saw 2 or 3 big lizards in the wild at the park. They are like 3 feet long! We walked on the old Bahia Honda Bridge and through a nature trail, and then straight to the swimming to cool off! Their is a general store on the same road as the beach house down by the marina that is great for last minute items or anything you might have forgotten (like tomatoes, toiletries, meat, grocery items) they also have ice cream and snorkel gear and gifts, my friend bought 5 t-shirts there for $2.99 each and they are very nice. The beach house itself is very spacious, it has basically 2 master bedrooms and a loft for the kiddies with a 1/2 bath, 2 balconies (one screened) a nice pool, wireless internet, full kitchen, nice laundry area. You should try No Name Pub for the Pizza, it is fantastic, but I would use a GPS, it is very hard to find!!! We will be coming to this beach house for years to come!! :)
