KEY WEST VACATION
Well, even though today is the 10th and an even day, Joy asked me to write today's blog. Joy is at yoga class this morning and I am waiting for our clothes to be finished.
We took a couple of days off and took the city bus down to Key West from Marathon. The bus only cost us $1.50 per person each way as we are over 60 and get the senior citizen rate. Normal rate of $3. Bus took about 55 minutes, very pleasant ride along the coast. First part is the 7 mile bridge, just west of Marathon.
We traveled to Key West to meet Linda Miko's sister, Tina and her husband Gary. We had a very enjoyable two days, living in a nice hotel, hot water, king size bed and AC.
Went to some very nice restaurants including BLUE HEAVEN. When we walked in we both said, we have been here before. It is the outdoors restaurant with a rope swing that we had dinner at 11 years ago as part of Mimi's 75th birthday celebration in Key West. Mom wanted to go to Key West, so she brought her entire family there for the weekend. We also tracked down ( Mark Gabriel's help) the place we all stayed at, Suite Dreams. Could not get into see it but did get to see the outside.
Including a lot of pictures this time as there was so much going on. Went to Southern Most Point again. There were 3 cruise ships in port on Monday, our first day. Of course we had to see the sunset at Mallory Square along with Gold Man, and other acts.
Sally and Manny are coming for dinner tonight and for a couple of days here in Marathon. We would like to be able to leave starting Feb 14, but the front head shower pump is acting up again. Probably need to replace it.
Only other stuff we need is diesel, gas, water, and your prayers.
