We're here

Ahh, we are back in paradise! Sunday drive to Key West - quick 6 hours and we were here by noon. Room wasn't ready to check in yet so we walked down the street - ended up at Crabby Dicks. 2 for 1 Margarita special and 25 cent wings. Good drinks and the wings were good. Did a little shopping - straight to Kermit's to buy a key lime pie and some other goodies we're getting low on. LOVE the key lime mango poppyseed dressing!

After checking in and dropping the bags off - just in time to hit Alonzo's for happy hour! Great beer battered shrimp and love the key lime baked oysters! However, the conch fritters are gross here. I couldn't even get one whole fritter down. Strolled along harbor walk - looked at the tarpon in the water. Saw a HUGE grouper swimming around - had to be 250 lbs! No fish tales here.

Headed down to schooner warf where there was a little festival going on: Save the western union ship. Just as we walked up, who was getting ready to play - MM 24!! WHAT A TERRIFIC TREAT! Love them and they did not dissapoint. Great start to a short trip. Goodnight all - stay tuned for further updates....

You're such a tease! I have to wait another 25 days until we are there. For your sake, I hope the further updates come after your trip is done. I wouldn't want to waste my time in Key West typing on the 'puter.
