Key West Travel Blog› entry 5 of 10 › view all entries
did not wake up at any particular time....
got up and lazied around for a bit, got a shower, threw some clothes on and headed to Duval St. Most everything happens on or around Duval.
Today, I decided to eat at a restaurant called the Banana Cafe. The Banana Cafe is only opened until 4pm, so make sure you get there well before as they sometimes have a wait. I got very lucky....there was a couple of tables available, but none outside. As the weather was more than terrific, I just had to eat on the patio. The hostess, probably the owner, said that it would be about 10 minutes and that I could sit and wait. She then came back within a moment and said it would not be so long.....a gentleman had just finished.
I took my table and had a bit of decision making to do.
After breakfast (Lunch), I wanted to do a bit of sight seeing so I walked about the land and took pictures everywhere. The island is not very big, but I walked and stopped and walked again for almost 3 hours.
After the self guided tour of the land (me walking around), I went back to the car so that I could get freshened up. Later this evening, I was cruising the waters on a catamaran to see the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.
Dinner was really good at the Hard Rock.
Walked in and out of almost every bar on Duval from the Hard Rock to where my car was parked about 5 blocks.
At about 1am, I made it back to the car and to my room. This evening I decided to do something I had never done....
I went swimming for about an hour in the hotels pool, met some very nice people. The other guests in the pool were going to the Dry Tortugas in the morning. The Dry Tortugas is a national park about 70 miles away from Key West and I hear it is a must see.
Day 2 is complete.
