Our week in Key West was mainly one of work and catching up on emails, but we did manage to have some fun. Mornings and days were for working and each day I went around the corner to workout at the Key West 24 Hour Fitness Center, sometimes taking Corey with me. Late afternoons and evenings we went for walks to find dinner and drinks. There was a new restaurant and brewery that opened in the last year and it was literally at the end of our dock. The Waterfront Brewery has the coldest air conditioning we found in Key West and a fabulous happy hour (half off!) on their beers, which were excellent BTW. We frequented this spot because of the great happy hour specials and the great location.
One evening, we walked to Mallory Square where we watched a young girl perform. She was amazing and we spoke to her mother about her journey and how she came to playing there. They were on vacation and decided that she would perform in Mallory Square for the sheer experience. We hope some day Corey can play some songs for this audience because we think he would rock it!
We also took a trip to visit the USGC Cutter Ingham & Museum. The Ingham was the oldest Active Duty and most decorated Naval vessel serving the U.S. I’ll show photos and explain more about this awesome ship in the next post.
Toward the end of our week on Thursday, we made plans to meet up with our friend Vinny for drinks and dinner since we didn’t get a chance to talk much at the 4th of July fireworks. He let us borrow his Jeep the next morning to go to Publix for groceries (thanks Vinny!) which was a HUGE help since we planned to be out on hook the following week. We had an awesome time in Key West and the week went by way too quick.
