Once again we were up early because of the window situation in the room. I will admit, I was happy to go home after two nights of very little sleep. I could have taken a nap on the way back because I was so exhausted.
We checked out of the hotel around 10am and I went to get the car. I brought the car back and just double parked because I wasn’t going to haul all my crap again across Key West. After packing up we stopped really quick at the Cuban Coffee Queen for breakfast. There isn’t a ton to say about this place because it was just okay. I had a sandwich that was nothing exciting. A bit disappointing since I know people really love this place. I’ll try it again next time I’m in Key West to see if it just was a miss that day.
We finished up with breakfast and started driving back to Miami. Near Key Largo we thought it was time for lunch and we headed towards Alabama Jacks. This actually requires turning on to Card Sound Road, which is basically a road with nothing (very little traffic and really no one around). There is a toll on Card Sound Road that does not take the SunPass.
Once through the toll I parked and then we headed into Alabama Jacks. We got a table right on the water. I ordered the Conch Fritters, which were like an actually fritter and not a ball like other restaurants serve. The fritters were great and probably some of the best I had. There were large pieces of Conch in the fritters.
Now the one super annoying thing we experienced was the patrons next to us. This couple felt it necessary to feed the birds, which literally were flying all around us while trying to eat. This just was so obnoxious and went on most of the meal. Thankfully they left before we finished. After finishing up we headed back to Miami and hit a ton of traffic. Finally I got home about 4pm.
Overall it was an interesting trip, even though I had to go because of my internship. Hopefully next time it will be a bit better when I go to Key West.
