Labor Day weekend: labor of love

Just a fun post……..the family managed to sneak in one more short Florida Keys trip before school, soccer, and Boy Scouts command all our attention. Over the Labor Day weekend we dragged our small 19 foot Plan B to Key Largo to play with some lobster and yellowtails. With perfect weather we had a lot of fun snorkeling for lobsters, yellowtailing, a couple of SCUBA dives (took lobster gear), golf cart driving (kids), and as an introduction to a fall SCUBA course I did a Hookah dive with my 14 year Casey for 25 minutes to 21 feet. Fun trip!!

We Floridians have the life!!
