Rick's Road Trip Wed Oct 15 to Fri Oct 17

Next Day

Wed: Arrived in Key West. Had breakfast at a cafe on the beach. Down the street is the southernmost point in the US. I had read many of Hemingway's books so I had to visit Hemingway's house. Not terribly exciting but OK. Duval Street is where everything is located. Of course I had to a beer or so at Sloppy Joes, Margaritaville,Rick's and some others. What is different in Key West is that many people drink on duval street. Bars serve beer and drinks is plastic so you can take it with you. Same thing at Mallory Square where many go to watch the sunset. Mostly I r&r'ed, got some sun, had a few beers. On the way out of Key West, I stopped to see the African Queen boat from the film. The Caribbean club in Key Largo is claimed to be a place where Humphrey Bogart hung out during the filming of Key Largo. Actually its a pretty dirt-bag bar. Sat: Left Key West, on the way to Florida city (Everglades).
