    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.

When Mari and I were in veterinary school together at the University of Georgia, we would often visit (her then fiancée) Jon in Florida during weekends or holidays. During one of these trips Jon gave me a music CD (it was before the iTunes era) – Greta’s Tits by Michael McCloud, a Key West native. It soon became one of my favorite albums, and I have ...

    ... Our plans included a water taxi and an excellent if noisy restaurant. It was a fun evening with good food and good company. It was made more enjoyable by the fact that we avoided the very, nasty traffic one finds in Fort Myers Beach during spring break courtesy of our water taxi.

    We went to bed early that night knowing we had a BIG adventure ahead of us. This was going to be the first time traveling a long stretch on the Gulf all by our little selves and without the ...

    Now that the toll misery is out of the way, we can talk about how awesome today has been. We set an alarm to be up in time for our early departure from Key West International Airport by seaplane. We were met by Captain John, who was really the quintessential Key West pilot type of guy, thick beard, barefoot, etc. We and eight others hopped on a ...

    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 ...
