So we kept going down the keys until we reached our final destination, Key West. We had no idea what to expect. Up to that point the keys had offered beautiful vistas of the water, but were pretty touristy and a little bit ugly in terms of what man had made on them. We hoped Key West would offer something different.
And it did! Key West was full of beautiful homes, nice restaurants, and a classier side of tourism!
Very lovely homes everywhere, surrounded by paradise.
Until we stumbled upon backwoods Georgia with this home across the street from the cemetery. One lonely pair of underwear, dangling in the sea breeze.
There were also nice churches and civic buildings across this relatively small island. We walked from one side to the other in about 20 minutes.
Most fun Walgreens ever, don't you think? Devin should get a job here.
We found puppies!
We went and took the mandatory photos down at the tip of Americas ween. I didn't realize it was only 90 miles to Cuba.
Ah yes, the cripple.
For dinner we went to the Half Shell Raw Bar on the water.
Troopers ready to eat after a long and busy day. Actually, Beef didn't eat. She wanted to go to Wendy's to get a salad, so she just watched eat.
Devin and I split a plate of oysters that had different seasonings, from BBQ to lemony zests. They were great...I love oysters!
Crab cake sandwich that was reported as okay.
I felt it was necessary to eat something caught in the water right outside our window, so I had this fish. It was seasoned well and very delicious.
A great end to an awesome day. Well, I guess we still had the 3 1/2 hour drive back...but still.
Yes keys...we ate you raw, and found you rather to our liking.
