Ok, so over the weekend I went down to Key West with my friend Carol. It was a pretty good and relaxing trip. It was cool to see the beautiful blue and green water on the way down. There were lots of boats and big homes through out the keys. It was definitely a beautiful drive. When we got to the hotel we had a nice room with a hot tub witch we never did get to utilize. After we rested a bit we took the hotel shuttle down to the touristy part of Key west and walked around a bit and watched the sunset. Then we looked for a place to eat and ended up at Margeritaville. The food was ok. I ended up having a boca burger which was nice that they had it on the menu, but the food was just above fast food in quality. After that we spent a couple of more hours walking around and getting lost and then went back to the hotel and watched liar liar and drank some more.

The next day we ended up not getting out until around 1, found a middle eastern/Greek restaurant close to the hotel and had hummus and I had a really good middle eastern wrap with grilled eggplant and peppers and put hummus on that too. After we ate we drove around Key west some more, then changed into swimming trunks and drove to Ft Zachery and spent a while on the beach and in the water. Then we went back to the hotel, showered and went back to the touristy part in the shuttle, watched the sunset and walked around some more. Ate at an ok Thai place, although they did have some good fried dumpling things. After walking around some more we went back to the hotel and rested some more.

On Tue we did the final things we hadn’t gotten to yet like went to a lighthouse, saw mile marker 0 and took pictures of big cruise ships. Then we drove back home to reality. All and all it was a good trip, and it was nice to get away from it all. Hopefully the oil shit won’t ruin it all and they will be able to clean it up before it gets down here. It is just too beautiful to get ruined.

I am not sure what is happening with the flog. I am thinking of doing a flicker thing and uploading there. If and when I do I will let you know. Stay posted.
