On to the end of the road

Thankfully, when we left Florida City the next morning, the storm had disappeared.   As we were passing through Key Largo we drove past what looked like a brand new RV Park, right on the ocean, which, we think, was called Point of View RV Resort.   I’m not sure we’ll ever get across to Florida with BT & the Cougar but it looked like it’d be a good place to stay.

After the obligatory Starbucks in Key Largo, although why when it was so hot I really don’t know, we continued on our way to Key West, stopping off at beautiful Bahia Honda State Park along the way.

Now this is what you call a beach, and you know what, we practically had it to ourselves, how lucky is that?

Someone made this cute little turtle in the sand.

After a couple of hours of sunning and swimming, we carried on to Key West and checked in to our hotel, after which we headed out to watch the sunset celebrations on Mallory Square.

While we were in Key West we didn’t do a great deal we did however visit Fort Zachary Taylor beach, it’s a pretty beach, but not as nice as Bahia Honda.  

We strolled around the harbour where we took advantage of the benches, ate some ice-cream, admired the statues, some of which we didn’t remember seeing before.
just for a split second as I looked up I thought these were actual people

 close to Mallory Square

further round we walked past this happy houseboat

followed by a look around 'Woolwurth’s'

then we enjoyed a Cuban coffee, and, I’m pleased to say, the cockerel on the counter was wooden.   I don’t like birds of any kind wandering around near to me, which as you can imagine can be something of a problem in Key West.

old style Key West

 I think this was once the Cuban Embassy

After another trip to Bahia Honda, where once again we mostly had the beach to ourselves, ah bliss!

We drove back to Key West, returned our hire car, packed our cases and flew home, to........................ arctic weather, oh joy!

Have fun, we are!
