Left South Carolina on Friday the 24th of August (my Birthday). Made a few stops along the way ending up in Boca Raton on Saturday night. Watching and waiting to see what Hurricane Isaac had in store for us before leaving for the keys. We made a logical decision at 6:00am with a four hour window before the rain hit key west that we would push on and drive to Key West. We were the only car going south from Miami. Saw a few cars in Marathon. Nobody on the seven mile bridge. Stopped at the last key for a few provisions and arrived at Sunset Harbor at 10:30am. The staff was great. We were able to unload and check in before the rain approached the keys. Two story/two bedroom over looking the pool and harbor. Awesome! Glow sticks, flashlights and water were delivered to our room at 11:30 in case we lost power. Weather channel was around the corner filming (Stephanie, Al and Maria and crew). We were on the weather channel around 4:00. Got a few calls from family saying they saw us and tagged us on facebook. Key West only got an inch of rain, Awesome sunset and beautiful windy day on Monday. Anyway! Basically had the resort to ourselves for a few days because all airports (Key West, Marathon, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale) cancelled all flights. I can't say enough about the staff (front desk, maintenance and housekeeping) were exceptional and went above and beyond any needs of guests. Two pool parties (Tuesday and Wednesday) Recommendations: Garbo's food truck across from the pepper store, Amigos (late night), Alonzos for Happy Hour (Drinks and food 1/2 price), Sunset pier for entertainment and happy hour, Sloppy Joes and Irish Kevins for bands, Lattitudes at Westin Sunset Key, (free boat ride) Westin hotel for Breakfast, Blue Heaven for breakfast, Wind and Wine Sunset sail. (Awesome crew and a great selection of wine and beer). Bahia Honda state park for a snorkeling and kayaking, Hogs Breath Saloon for some great Blues (great local hang out), Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island (Awesome food). Island Dog for 2 for 1 (with coupon) and bands late night. Skip the Rum Barrel and Ricks (horrible service and bad attitudes) Brother Dave took us to the Yacht club and took his buddy's big twin engine fishing boat out. Felt like something from Miami Vice. We brought our bikes and kayak and try to do it all in a week. Met some great friends and had a great time with Brother-in-law and girlfriend. The best Birthday week at the Hyatt Sunset Harbor.
