Day 5 - We saw the forecast today was going to be chilly, 60 degrees, so we made plans to drive to Key West. We have been to Key West before so we were content to hop on the Trolley Tour and listen to the history of Key West & see the sights and sounds. We then headed to Hemingway's hangout "Sloppy Joes" for some sloppy joes! It was a nice outing for the day. After some walking around we headed back home! (If you ever go make sure you visit The Hemingway House, Truman's Little White House and Mel Fischer's Museum of deep sea treasures)




Day 4 - Another relaxing day at the Checca Lodge adult pool and then we had fun taking out paddle boards (free)! The temps were around 80 all week!  Another calm day. At the recommendation of our Captain we went to Ziggie & Mad Dogs for dinner. Always best to make reservations a day ahead! We like to eat early! From the outside I doubt if you were ever go to this restaurant but inside was classy and you would think you were in a NYC restaurant! Quaint bar, linen tablecloths, friendly staff ad exquisite food! The orig owner Ziggie was back in the Al Capone era. Later his partner was "Mad Dog" a Miami Dolphins NFL football player. Both are now deceased & the restaurant is run by Randy who was Mad Dog's partner. I enjoyed a fun cosmo with an orchid! We started with an exceptional chopped blue cheese wedge salad. I devoured the fresh "Shrimp Islamorada", jumbo shrimp with a buerre blanc sauce and parmesan spinach.  To die for! My husband had one of the best grilled steaks ever! Along with truffle mac & cheese!
