Just a quick post to catch you up on our vacation. Neil took many nice photos that I will share in a follow up post after he edits them but wanted to post a quick look on our vacation so far.
We left Fort Myers yesterday and after a botched attempt at a hike arrived in Key West about 1545. After checking into the Heron House Court B&B for a couple of days we wandered off for booze and dinner. Roman who manages the B&B gave us a couple of 2 for 1 drink coupons so that narrowed down our choices for booze considerably (we’re both cheap and booze for less is always good for us!). We went to the Schooner Wharf Bar and had a beer. While we were quaffing that we noticed an empty can of Goslings Ginger Beer on the bar. A quick inquiry showed tha they had Goslings Spiced Rum as well so our second coupon got us 2 Dark and Stormy’s. Yummy. The food selection at Schooner was not so hot so we shifted to Finnigan’s Wake Irish Pub for dinner. Potato skins appetizer,Guinness, and bread pudding that was good but wasn’t bread pudding served as dinner. Connie had worn sandals with short heels and her feet hurt so she walked home barefoot instead. We got home and hit the sack.
This morning after breakfast we headed out for a walkabout. After visiting the southernmost point in the continental US
We stopped by Sloppy Joes where Ernest Hemmingway used to hang out. I convinced Kara to go along with the adults today and here she is posing with a coupla Marguerittas.
Finally we stopped by the A&B Lobster House as recommended by our friend Lynn from NJ for lunch. Connie had a crab/avocado salad and Neil had Coconut Fried Grouper with lime/mustard sauce. Both were yummy and Neil got a shot of the view from our wharfside table.
Then we headed back to the hotel for siesta before we go out again for more fun later.
