Day Off in Key West: What Shall I Do?

   There are really so many thing to do here in Key West that it is sometime difficult to try and decide what it is you really do want to do.   I guess that I could travel into town an wander with the tourists and see what is happening on Duval Street, but that would mean that I would be bouncing around with the crowds.    Checking out the entertainment and trying a new cocktail or two can be fun, but the weather is much too nice and it can be hot when you are strolling between the buildings.

     I guess that I can head for the beach and see what is happening down there today.    The sea turtles are about due to be laying their eggs this time of year and it would be fun to see if there are any signs of the turtles coming ashore.   It is always fun to observe all of the different tracks that are in the sands of the beaches.     Maybe I'll just hop into the boat and cruise out to a more deserted beach and maybe get to see more interesting things that are inhabiting these remote beaches and keys.

     I'm really beginning to get hungry, so maybe a trip over to the Hurricane Hole and have some lunch.    There I maybe able to decide what it is that I really want to do today.    It is always easy to sit and have a good lunch and gab with whomever happens to be there.   This will free my mind up and maybe find someone that has something in mind for the afternoon.

     I guess that a trip in the dinghy is really what I need to be doing today to get away from the hustle bustle of this little tourist town that may actually be slowing down with the passing of Memorial Day weekend and heading into the "off-season" and a bit slower pace.   I think that I'll just head out to one of the tiny keys and see what interesting things that I can find there.   Maybe just anchor in the shade of the mangroves and take a nap.

     At the end of the day the only thing that really matters is that I did enjoy my day and I'm ready to return to the Rum Bar and have some fun with my old and new friends that stop by to visit.   I really hate all of these difficult decisions.   ;o)
