Key West

Key West again. The weekend before my eyelid surgery seemed like a good time to get away and take the new Honda on a shakedown cruise. We get about 38 MPG although the sticker says 31 Highway.

We get a mixture of good and very bad food although it's uniformly overpriced.

We stay at the Grand Guesthouse, which is a nice little B&B on Grinnell near the Beach and near the back end of Duval Street. It gets very good reviews and is  relatively reasonable in a quiet neighborhood.

We awake berore dawn to find a young lady sprawled in a lawn chair clutching a bottle of Gordon's gin. 

This looked a lot better than it tasted.


The trees here can be full of flowers.

I went swimming on Higg's beach. The water was just right.

Chicken on the beach. Key West is known for feral chickens.
