Key West to Old Key West day 6

Friday 16th November 2012
I got up early and had a couple of hours fishing while Theresa had a lay in until 7.30.

We had a breakfast of orange juice, tea and cinnamon rolls before we made our way to Robbie’s, stopping en route at Winn Dixie to buy Theresa some new sunglasses as her old ones had broken.

We had so much fun feeding the Tarpon at Robbie’s on Islamorada; they will jump out of the water to take the fish out of your hand. They have no teeth just rubbery lips so they can’t bite you as such but they are big and could pull you in if you weren’t careful.







Theresa developed a liking for pelicans and got carried away taking pictures of them.



After Robbies we went to the Hungry Tarpon for 2nd breakfast. We have never eaten 2nd breakfasts before yet we did it twice on this trip.

Theresa had The Hump. No not with me, that was the name of her breakfast.
It was a big pile of scrambled eggs with bacon, cheese, chorizo, hash browns, country gravy and a big soft biscuit.

While I had the Silverking, a sausage, egg and cheese toasted sandwich.

We both had coffees with it of course.

The bill was $20 plus tip and it was well worth it, we were sitting right on the waterfront of the marina watching people feeding the tarpon.
After 2nd breakfast we headed back up the keys and stopped at a few places so I could fish.

It was so beautiful . I had a few pulls and follows but didn’t catch anything.




We stopped at the keylime shop and had a tub of keylime pie ice cream each, it was delicous.

Theresa wanted to get a picture of the hurricane sign so we had to do a few drive-bys until she got a picture she was happy with.

We called in at a wild bird sanctuary where Theresa continued her fascination with Pelicans. It was very smelly though.





We went back to our resort and I did some more fishing while Theresa had a nap.

That evening we went out to dinner at Sundowners.

It was a lovely place and we had a table overlooking the dock. They had underwater lights and you could see the Tarpon swimming about. Our server brought us a bucket of small fish and Theresa and I took it in turn to feed the Tarpon.

We thought it was time to try the other Keys delicacy - Conch fritters (pronounced Konk).

We were glad we’d tried them but I don’t think we’d bother again.

Theresa had Blackened Mahi-Mahi for her main and I had Grouper stuffed with crab.

We both loved the food and the restaurant so much we bought a Sundowners Tee shirt each.

I am with Theresa there, I love Pelicans. I could spend hours watching them. Your second breakfast looks gorgeous.

2nd Breakfast. Biscuits and gravy. Ice cream snack break. Fried conch fritters before your entrees. Good thing you did all that napping and fishing to work off the calories.

Looks like a beautiful place. I'm certainly starting to think I want to spend some more time in the Keys!
