Tell me a Story: August 2017
My blog is very simple this month. I had surgery on both my feet 2 weeks ago and right now it is hard to focus on anything.
Friday, prior to surgery, Richard and I took a drive down to Key West for an overnight stay. I decided I would share the quaint guest house that we stayed at. It was called Simonton Court. It was close to Duval Street and also close enough from where our sunset cruise left from.
The guest house seemed to be made up of possibly 3 different houses. There was 8 rooms in the house we stayed in. Below was our own private pool and it was really nice to slip into the water and cool down.
The property was lush with plants and had the feeling of a tropical jungle. Especially after it rained and the humidity level rose. Here are a few pics of where we stayed.
I went outside to take photo’s and the humidity was so high that the lens kept fogging up but I really liked the effect that it had.
This was our own private pool and we spent a fair bit of time in here. It was great for me to cool down my aching feet in the water.
Light effects through out the area where we were staying.
A view into another area which has it’s own private swimming pool.
This pathway headed down to the main eating area and main swimming pool.
Staggered along the pathway were these quaint little cottages.
A view of the main house , the breakfast area and the main swimming pool.
Where the pool is now, once stood a boiler house and when they took the boiler house down they decided to leave the brick corners. It gives the pool a rustic effect.
Nestled in the corner I found this hammock. If we had not been leaving I would have been seriously tempted to hang out there.
We did not use this pool although it looked very inviting but we were certainly glad to end off our day hanging out in our own private pool.
This was just before we ended off the day. We took a sunset cruise on a sailing ship. What fun.
