Saying Goodbye to Paradise Point

This morning we leave for home with great hopes that the snow will be melted and the temps will remain above freezing. It was fun being a Snobird if only for a month. The place we stayed is called Ocean Pointe and is a complex of condominiums in Tavernier, FL, which is the tiniest little community between Key Largo and Islmorada.
The condo was a two bedroom corner unit that had an ocean view from the living area and a semi-ocean view from the bay window that faced south-southeast. Lots of sunlight streamed in everyday as we enjoyed perfect weather. Temps in the mid 70s to lower 80s and often a cool start in the morning which lent to a great time on the tennis courts.

Our view also included an osprey nest which entertained us at times. One morning we heard quite a commotion. I wondered what sort of family spat had arisen. I'm guessing it was over who had the rights to the fresh caught breakfast.
The second bedroom came in handy as we were close enough to our Florida grandkids to invite them to visit on several weekends.

The complex has a swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts, a small beach, a board walk, a marina, a cafe, lots of mangrove trees and palms, and some nice picnic tables and grills that we enjoyed as well.

Our condo exhibited the signs of much "love" as any home would that is well-used but it was very comfortable, had all the necessary items to make our stay comfortable as well as unexpected stocks of supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc.

Our hosts (owners of the condo), Greg and Stevie Bovee, were very helpful and friendly. We got to meet them in person as they came to get a new WIFI modem installed. They call their condo Paradise Point. Sadly we say goodbye but with the hope of returning one day as Snobirds again.
