A few months ago, we decided to take a long-weekend vacation with our wonderful neighbors, the Mills. After about 4 attempts to find a conflict-free weekend, we settled on the last weekend in February. Originally, we were going to go to Mexico...then we found out that we all had to have passports. Fast forward a little and we found a house to rent in the Florida Keys. The house was big enough for the four of us, plus some more.
We invited some other friends and ended up with a total of seven travelers. We had a great time fishing and relaxing. The weather cooperated and we all completely forgot it was still February! We rented a boat that was delivered right to our dock and cruised around the bay. (I think we maxed out at 13mph.)
