Beach Bum Writer In Key Largo

The lazy life in Key Largo was extremely condusive to getting some writing done.

We took a family vacation over the Easter vacation and stayed at the Marriott Beach Resort, which was very nice. Beach at the edge of the pool, a good restaurant on site, and great staff.

But most of all, I got a lot of writing done and a good deal of reading as well. Knocked two books off my “to read list” (TRL).

Our hotel parrot. Perhaps I could feature him in a new series…I think a crime spree may be about to hit Key Largo.

A sunset to die for — at our hotel.
