little palm island

One of the final nights with my family was spent wining and dining at my favorite restaurant on Little Palm Island. The island is gorgeous and so calming: no children allowed and no cell phones. If you don't have your own yacht you can take the island's 15-20 minute boat-ride to your dinner (or your stay). More information on the island can be found here.

After our initial tropical cocktails of watermelon mojitos and mango-strawberry rum smoothies, the key deer began to come out. At first they are cute but they were on a mission to lick all of the salt shakers on the island. They would not take no for an answer. Cute...but pushy...knocking glasses and anything else over in their path they did not care about anything but the SALT! The evening was filled with kobe beef sliders, bottles of Sancerre, lobster risotto, and saffron cheesecake (on my part at least!). As the night went on and the sun set, the tiki torches and candles were the only light sources.

As the night came to a close, the cocktails and wine made for terribly blurry photographs.  I was forced to put my camera away and enjoy the warmth of the fire pit on the beach and the soothing sounds of the pianist, guitarist, and vocalist before laying on the dock on the plush foam chairs staring at the stars.

Pin It Now!
