A Travellerspoint blog


June heat

sunny 93 °F


Our day started in a casual fashion as we enjoyed our coffee overlooking the water watching the boats and kayaks in the bay in front of us. Our friend and 'blog follower', Doug Loftis sent me a text recommending the restaurant, Louie's Backyard, situated along the water. Among the hundreds of eateries in Key West it is nice to have a recommendation from a 'foodie' like Doug. We decided to have lunch there and it was wonderful. "Thanks, Doug" Interestingly, a Dog Beach, yes, a beach designated for animals was located on the street. Animals are normally forbidden on beaches for obvious reasons!

After lunch we decided to take a bike ride along the water on North Roosevelt Blvd. to burn off a few calories. That we did, but got overcome by the 90+ degree heat, high humidity and the blistering sun. Pat said, 'Let's go back to the air-conditioned motorhome!' Upon our return we found that some new neighbors had arrived in our RV park. A couple from North Carolina with their teenage son. Another family from Colorado who (the wife) is a traveling nurse working under a 3 month contract in Key West. Another couple in their late 70's with a brand-new 5th wheel camper and new pick-up truck. Wow! The last newcomers are a visiting family (3) from Germany who rented a small mh to tour FL for 3 weeks. Everyday is different in the RV world with us vagabonds coming & going.

Our dining experiences were interesting. Lunch I described above. We chose Alonzo's Oyster Bar for dinner. It is located on Front Street along the water near the ferry dock. We were blessed (?) by being seated between 2 groups of young guys who were in town for weddings. The noise from their tables was deafening and the crescendos increased with each round of drinks. It is good that I am 'half-deaf', but poor Pat! Oysters were priced a $3.00 apiece--too rich for my Scottish blood so we had a fish dip for an appetizer with cold chardonnay, of course. Pat enjoyed a fresh shrimp salad, and my calamari dish was excellent. The Front Street neighborhood was very busy with all the bars and restaurants going full-tilt. Not being into night life much we returned to our rv quarters having had a full and satisfying day.

Tomorrow is our last day in Key West.

Do you ever cook or is the kitchen just for show?
Enjoy, Ken and Anita
