The Tiki Hut.
here's the accommodations for the night.
a little different than i'm used to though, that's for sure.
did my usual coffee thing in the morning. I think i left it was around 11am. getting later every day. not good.
I need to get going earlier! not later...
anyhow... i won't say much today as i don't have the time really. i'm essentially standing in the parking lot at a McDicks updating the blog. meh. at least i won a free smoothie.
some kind of sea mammal thing. dunno, rode right by it quickly
i found a nice little beach with very few people on it.
and maybe this is why.
the old man was sorting out a fishing net. it looked like he was doing a strange fishing dance.
odd. be thankful the shutter didn't go off when he was bending over. jesus.
|"LOOK AT THE PELICAN! FLY PELICAN FLY!"|
I finally made it to Key west... it takes about 2.5-3 hours if you go fast. meh. it's a long ride, but the ride itself is worth it. It's nice to not be passed all the time and just look at scenery. relaxing even.
probably why i wasn't tired later that night.
Went down to the Blond Giraffe where they have the best key lime pie in the world. Well, they were closed until Nov 15 as they were on vacation. damn you. guess i'll have to find better pie.
Duval street was neat. lots to look at, a lot of shopping... etc. Key west has so many scooters (and not many people know how to ride)
For your viewing and listening pleasure...
Spider-man playing the sitar!
took a break anyhow.
On this one way, 3 scooters and 1 car turned into it the wrong way. 1 near collision. idiots. this was in the span of 10 minutes. The dude in the background selling shells, just kept shaking his head... seems this is very common here. wow.
finally hit my waypoint.
cuba is that way... 90 miles...
saw it ... took a picture... left... so many tourists. (and nowhere to park)
at a light... the camera doesn't pick up the awesome color of it.
I went back to that little beach and creepy fisherman was gone. I went into the water.
yes, in my full suit. No, i didn't get wet. lol. These boots are awesome... i felt water seep in, but the way the boots are designed, my feet stayed dry. love the alpinestars.
I went back to Key Largo... as you can see, i haven't eaten all day and i was starving. I went to the place the resort said was good. I had a free key lime freeze voucher for it from the resort. I tried it... why not.
world's famous key lime pie eh?
Here's the key lime freeze.
I think i ordered something i would never had eaten in a million years.
well, i cleaned the plate... it was so well cooked and the fish didn't taste like fish... a little sweet to the taste (because of the lobster it eats)
I ordered it because i asked what the house specialty was... so i ordered it. you can't go wrong when you do that. The beans were a little spicy but worked well with the fish. it was truly very good. best fish i've ever had.
I read in their menu that Cosmo put in the magazine that this was the best key lime that they've had (2004)
So i took a piece.
phenomenal. It chilled to almost be frozen. it was wonderful... i almost cried.
if you see places like this, stop in.
doesn't hurt they had cute staff. :)

and here's some night riding. this is the good part on I-95 I took the toll way (turnpike) for a while but people in florida really cannot drive. It's scary how bad they are. the worst i have encountered in all of the USA so far.
i'm being serious too.
see? doesn't it look like the video game Night driver? remember, my visor is tinted so everything is darker. lol
I took a room in fort pierce.
