Key West – Day 2

Originally the plan for today was sleeping in, but that certainly didn’t happen. The hotel room was flooded with light before 8am. One of the biggest issues was no curtains over the upper windows. So we were up and about earlier then we expected. This really just made the whole hotel situation frustrating.

While riding around we stopped at the touristy Southernmost Point and road along the beach. During this time we stopped for lunch at the Schooner Wharf Bar. The best part of the meal was the Shrimp BLT Sandwich. We did start with Conch Fritters, which were a slight let down.

After awhile we headed back to the hotel to drop off the bikes and walked to Mallory Square. Here we watched the sunset while sitting at the Westin. The Westin has a nice bar area on the pier where you can watch the sunset. Here I ordered a Pina Colada that was so strong. It actually was a great deal for $8. We also split an order of Lobster Quesadillas. These were absolutely amazing and included a delicious Mango Salsa.

From here we then walked around and decided to go on a ghost tour. We went with Ghosts and Gravestones because it was right near the square and it had a trolley. The tour was not scary but instead informational and provided a great history of Key West. The tour did stop at the Fort East Martello Museum to visit Robert.  Robert is a haunted doll that is a bit creepy. The only downside to the tour was no gravestones. Overall it provided a good history of Key West.

From here we hit a few bars including Garden of Eden. This is the clothing optional bar. After an odd evening we went back to the hotel.
