Reflections on Keys

It was not meant to happen. Florida Keys. In fact, why would I go there in the first place? It's a few hours from Miami, a city that I'm not too fond of with beaches that I find more or less to be mediocre at best unless you fancy partying with friends.

... Now I just realized we went to the wrong place! I made reservations at another dockside place one marina over! LOL! No wonder they couldn't find the name. I asked the waitress if it was as bad as it looked and she said no. We chose to eat dockside.Now it's amazing that these great restaurants we've been at all look like dives from the outside, but get inside and ...

Following a search on Trip Advisor and a discussion with some locals Laura and I went in search of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. It is the best beach in Key West and there is a Fort! We went past Mile 0 of Route 1. So the morning was spent at the Beach, we crashed another wedding and had a picnic! In the afternoon we looked around the fort. Following a full day we drove onto Marathon for an overnight ...

    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.
