Drivin’ the Keys

Please excuse my tardiness in posting. I was driving down the Florida Keys this past week:

And if you know me well, you know that the first thing I do when traveling is research where to eat.

Cue: Sparky’s Landing, in Key Colony Beach, at US 1 mile marker 53.5.

The mojitos were fresh, but the conch fritters stole the show:

Fried shrimp, a fish sandwich, and grilled shrimp salad were also enjoyable, and a fitting welcome to the Florida Keys:

Of course, before we sat down to eat, we had to make a pitstop at Robbie’s Marina in Islamorada at US1 mile marker 77.5. Whether ecologically-sound or not, feeding tarpon and getting attacked by pelicans was the most entertaining $2 of my life:

After a long morning of eating, and watching tarpon eat, it was time to take a nap at Bahia Honda State Park. Despite being too windy to snorkel, it provided a great spot to rest in the sun:

We arrived in Key West just in time for the perfect finale to our day:
