Here is how to have the perfect Key West day!

Captain Kevin preparing our lunch!

I meet some wonderful people each month when I organize the Key West TweetUp’s and Barbie Wilson is one of them. Barbie and her husband Kevin have been fishing the Key West waters for over twenty years. Captain Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters is one of the best tour guides in the keys and created the perfect Key West day for me. Barbie is an ultra sound technician and is also a beautiful photographer.  Barbie is well known on Twitter (@Barbiedoll0087) for her Key West sunrise photos each morning.

As we approached mini-lobster season, Barbie invited me to go out on the boat with them on opening day from Geiger Key Marina. I was delighted at the invitation and didn’t hesitate with my YES!  I didn’t expect the amazing day we had and that’s when I decided on the 3 components for a perfect Key West day:

  • Get on a boat
  • Catch some fish
  • Eat it for lunch

      Hi Keri,
      Yes, and they just keep getting better. Key West is slow when it comes to learning social media, but that’s why I’m here. Nice connecting and thank you for reading .
