South Florida and the Keys are some of my absolute favorite vacation spots in the world. In grade school, I was lucky enough to attend week-long snorkeling camps at John Pennekamp Park two years in a row. The experience was incredible! It’s stayed with me all these years, and I always yearn to go back.
One particular trip to Key Largo, we stumbled on the perfect getaway—a colorful little cottage on a sand beach (hard to find in the Keys because everything is coral), complete with lazy hammocks and beachside grills.
We put those grills to good use the evening after our deep sea fishing excursion, stopped at the local grocery for seasoning and cooked our catch as we watched the sunset from our hammocks.
Best. Fish. Ever.
Until the next day, when my brother and I glimpsed a rare hammerhead while snorkeling!
