St. Mary Star of the Sea


In 2010, we spent Christmas in Florida. While there, we spent a couple of days in Key West. We not only did a lot of walking, but we also rented mopeds for one of the days. As a result, we were able to see a lot more of the island than usual.

This photo was taken at the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea. I love the Christmas decorations that churches put up – there are a lot of reds, greens, angels, poinsettias, etc. But having been raised in the Midwest, it was almost impossible to get a shot like this – an open air church (sliding side doors opened wide), with gorgeous, colorful flowers, and the sun shining all around us.

This was definitely a Christmas to remember!
