Travel Diary: Key West, Florida
At long last, I've finally gotten around to editing the last few pictures for my Bahamas cruise trip last month: please bear with me while I post a couple more posts in an extremely late manner. For our third and final port of our cruise, we docked at Key West in Florida-- a beautiful little town full of tourist attractions, heat, and gorgeous scenery. Since we had spent the last couple of days engaging in activity-filled island excursions, we decided to take it easy at this particular port and just walk around buying souvenirs and food. One of the most exciting things that happened when we first got off the ship was that we were finally reunited with wifi! It's crazy how dependent we are on social media and the internet; you don't realize the full extent of your addiction until you're forced to go without it for a few days.
Now, I'm going to leave you with the following hodge-podge of pictures taken while strolling around town.
Doing some corny touristy things.
We couldn't leave Key West without trying some of the famous key lime pie.
There were many so-called historic bars and saloons around town. We ended up going into one famous for numerous varieties of beer, where we enjoyed blueberry beer and other fruity brews.
I can't remember the name of this restaurant but I do remember the delicious food. The Bahamian and Floridian restaurants use conch shellfish as a food staple so we were able to enjoy conch soup and conch fritters. As well, we had the most delicious coconut prawns as seen below.
After several exhausting days of snorkeling and going hardcore at water parks, a relaxing day around Key West was just what the doctor ordered. From what you could see in these snapshots, would you be interested in visiting this beautiful little town?
