I set out to go explore the Florida Keys today. I stopped at a visitor center on the way for a few suggestions. I drove to Islamorada and decided it was time for lunch. I decided on Island Grill since it was voted “best waterfront restaurant”.
I ordered a local brew and their fish tacos, which turned out to be a twist on sushi. Great food, live music, and a view of the ocean… very nice!
Then I went down the road to a place called Holiday Isle. This was an attempt at a resort, but it seemed pretty cheesy to me.
Now that I’m typing this up and looking at my book, I realize I went to the wrong place. The suggested place was “Robbie’s Marina“, and it doesn’t look nearly as cheesy! Oh well!
Being out on the ship was great. I talked with a young couple from Germany and they asked me about how I deal with the heat. I proudly explained to them that I’m from Texas, and you just have to live with heat!
The last stop of the day was another great meal. This time I choose The Fish House in Key Largo. Their fish was OK, but their key lime pie was great. I learned that real key lime pie is yellow, not green. (sorry, no picture, my fork acted faster than my camera)
