Kelly and I celebrated our 6-year anniversary on May 4. It's hard to believe it's been that long, but you know what they say about how time flies...
To celebrate, we did something we've been waiting years to do -- We went to a Radiohead concert! We both love Radiohead, but since they're from the U.K., they don't often tour in the U.S. We have been afraid the band would break up before we'd get the chance to see them in concert. But with the release of their new album, In Rainbows, they scheduled a U.S. tour -- and the first stop was West Palm Beach, FL. We drove all the way across the state to celebrate six amazing years of marriage and hear one of our favorite bands perform an incredible live show. (See our Radiohead Concert post if you're interested in photos and video from the show.)
We also did some cool birding, which took us through Miami (where we stopped at a Cuban cafe in Little Havana) and on to Key Largo. Of course, we had to eat key lime pie while we were there!
We ate at the Paris Bakery & Cafe in downtown West Palm Beach the day of the concert (SO delicious). While we were there, a pigeon landed on the building across the street, right next to a statue of a Great Horned Owl -- which is supposed to scare birds AWAY. Kelly thought it was funny, so snapped a photo.
We had a small pond outside our hotel window, where we saw three Common Moorhen chicks following after their mama. The picture is blurry since it's so far away, but if you click on it to blow it up, the little baby chicks are super-cute.
We had a bit of spare time before the concert, so we went to the beach. While the beach itself didn't seem very novel since we live right by it already, it was nice to see the Atlantic again, since we're by the Gulf.
