Spring Break: Let’s go to Key West

Spring Break in Key West via the Disney Magic.  #disneycruise


Let’s take a little trip, shall we? One of the ports of call on our Disney Cruise was to Key West, Florida.  There’s just something about it – I love the color, bright sun, and pretty architecture.

But that’s about it, really — the rest of the town leaves little to be desired unless you’re a college student looking to be clad only in a bikini drinking beer at 10am. ::gag::  I’ve been a couple of times to KW, both as cruise ship ports-of-call. And while it’s not my favorite spot due to the crazies, I do love the island vibe. Plus, the architecture of the little bungalows is right up my alley.

But first let’s stop for some ice cream!  Or, uhhh, frozon yogurt. Haha – I didn’t even notice the typo on the sign until I was editing these photos.

Look how the inside ceiling of the porch (above) is painted a contrasting color. So many of the homes had that same little feature. I would love to do this at our house.  Plus the aqua painted porch adds to the charm.

    I don’t know about Key West, but when I visited Charleston I asked about the blue ceilings on the porches. They said they were originally thought to keep away the bad spirits, but now people did it because it is just what was always done. I loved it though!!

      Really? how interesting! Funny how things like this get started!

    • Yea, I was about to say the same thing! When i visited Key West, I took a tour of the town and the guide said that it was once believed that spirits could not cross water. So to keep the bad spirits away from their homes, locals would paint the porches blue so the the spirits would be confused into thinking it was the sea and would not bother them. But I agree, either way, I loved the blue painted porches when I was there. So pretty and fun! 🙂

  • Great photographs, rachel! I love Key West!
