Slowing down in the Keys

Although I had intended to do a complete two-week tech detox, yes that is an actual thing nowadays, I cheated and only used my phone which probably does just as much as my laptop. Anyway I did try to curb technology use and slow down my pace to the Keys. People walk slower, are hardly on time and if it doesn’t happen today, oh well. Coming from a northeast city it can be a bit of a culture shock.

By eliminating checking my cell phone every few minutes or being logged onto my laptop I was able to free up my mind, create some space for new ideas and absorb what was going on around me– beautiful sunsets, vibrant flowers and pesky animals (geckos, iguanas, roosters and cats, oh my!).

Not sure what type of butterfly this is…any ideas?

First sunset on 2013 on a boat right off Key West, not a bad way to start the year!
