    Rustic stay with perks; a gem of a bargain

    As a solo traveler, the cottage was such a luxury for the price. The cottage comes with a queen bed, TV, shower, microwave and utensils. It has a very cheerful atmosphere inside and outside. Your car has its own space right next to the cabin. Some updates are needed for the bathroom but all in all, it's a great bargain find. Marathon is a great place as a base. The plus is the great fish eateries along Hwy 1.

    ... western-facing side of the Key. A quick lesson in Florida Keys geography – it’s a string of 1500+ islands stretching southwest-ward into the Caribbean; most of these islands are very tiny and very long and thin (down to a few hundred meters wide in some spots!). I took a quick dip in the pool and was decidedly glad to have a place with air conditioning as the temperatures were soaring in the mid 90’s (approx. 35 Celsius). The family joined me for sundowners on ...

    ... to get an audition the week after we get back. Serious excitement for Phoebe. She has decided to sing 'favourite things' from sound of music as her audition piece and so has been singing it all around the van all evening!

    Ru cooked supper this evening as my stomach is feeling so dodgy. Then we watched Forrest Gump in the van and went to sleep.

    Tomorrow we're going to take the bus to Key West to have a look around.

Long wide beaches, not many people, shallow,warm water and all kinds of shells. I saw a racoon ,but I think it was a regular one,not the endangered one that lives in the ...

    We are docked at the city's main marina where boaters come year after year and stay, usually, on mooring balls. Since the marina is supported by taxpayers, its facilities are available to the public. Today ...

    ... it's a little scary to be there all by yourself. Big thunderstorm came up while she was there. Would have been funny if she got struck by lightning in KW cemetery. To die in the cemetery. Huh? She also ate at Garbo's again. The Kogi Beef Tacos are to die for (so she says--she didn't give me any). No pepper sauce this time! Then she went shopping. Too bad there are so many tee shirt stores on Duval Street. She bought preserved lemons and glass bedside carafes at ...
