Short TR, Feb 26-March 5

Stayed at the Angelina, those of you who are on here often know how much we LOVE it there, and this trip was just as awesome as ever. Heated pool helped a LOT !!!

Weather was cold/rainy, some of the worst they have had in quite a while. somehow we managed to have fun anyway :)

Best part was seeing old friends and meeting new ones (Mark, Julie, Beth, Ivona, and others). We have met some of the best people in Key West.

highlights (at least the ones fit for reporting )

angelina...see review

Smokin Tuna....our fav place. Great music and staff. My bar tab there was more than the GNP of some 3rd world countries....and worth every cent :)

Jack Flats....good food, fair prices, and they will do what they can to accomodate any request you have

Ft Zach Taylor park....first time there and was even better than I thought it would be. ended up coming back for sunset. is now a MUST DO for every trip

Local Color...small jewelry shop on Greene St. just neat stuff and neat people.

JDL Big Ten bar....just had fun there

Hogfish Grill...was as good as everyone says !

Southernmost Beach cafe...cool place right by the water

Key West ice cream factory...great ice cream and very good Cuban Mix...and again right on the water.

Kino sandals.....wife bought a nice pair,,,then a second, then a third. thank goodness they dont have that many more styles !!

every year we think about going somewhere else, and every year we decide to go back to KW. we now call it HOME. booked for same time next year.

Looks like you've had a fantastic time Rog and yes isn't it great meeting up with old and new friends whenever you get to Key West? I bet every memory puts a smile on your face for the next year.

I know you had an awesome time and I enjoyed hearing about it! I think Fireball is the official shot of the Tuna. We sure had a bunch of them there in December and last month. ;) One day we need to be in town at the same time! My favorite pair of Kino's only comes in one color! What's up with that?! And I check every time we visit, just to make sure they haven't put out another color.

Loved that line - so much I wish I'd written it myself! :)

Nice report Rog, sounds like you had a whale of a time. We're big fans of the Angelina as well, glad to hear it is still as welcoming as ever.

Someday I hope to meet you and your wife in that place we call Home, maybe with a football match going in the background.
