We had a great time wandering round the town and visiting Hemmingway's House (and his 6-toed cats), the Southernmost Point and having a fantastic lunch on the boardwalk...
... we had only just started our day in Key West when we were lucky enough to see a Manatee in the harbour (having only seen them in captivity before)
This cool building which used to be a cinema is now a Walgreens, but thankfully they've kept the cool of the building
Hemmingway's House was very interesting & we had a docent who was knowledgable and quite funny too
Hemmingway's second wife removed all the ceiling fans to accommodate her chandeliers - boy is it hot in there (even with the fans they've put in)
very cool floor tiles in the bathroom
the lighthouse opposite the house - how Hemmingway found his way home from the bars apparently
his pool was soooo inviting
one of the many 6-toed cats
We also went to the Southernmost Point (everyone does apparently)
For lunch we went to Turtle Kraals, it was AMAZING...
... deliciously sweet and salty margaritas
and a couple of incredible sandwiches - pulled bbq chicken for me, and pulled brisket (marinated & very slowly cooked on the premises) for Hubby, with a whole tray of BBQ sauces to choose from
It was a great day in Key West, and heartily recommended.
We also had some lovely food nearer to Islamorada, at Wahoo's...
this was Mahi tortillas with mango, avocado and pineapple - YUM
and a Wahoo Sunrise (Run, mango slush and strawberry purree - sooooo good)
We also went to World Wide Sportsman behind which is an great restaurant where you can eat whilst watching the sun go down...
Great food too!
We also went to a couple of thrift stores & second-hand stores, Hubby found some vinyl at the Sally Army store, and the second0hand store Pink Junktique was fantastic, though sadly everything we wanted would have been impossible to get home (again, well worth a visit).
Well, that pretty much rounds up our Florida trip - with lots of relaxing thrown in too! x
