Our journey to Key West.
It took us nearly 2.5 hours to get to there. The road was one lane most of the way and the speed limit was quite low and it was busy on the road today.
Well we found somewhere to park and fed the meter and walked off to explore Key West.
So while we were walking around Dave spied an electric car/scooter to hire. So this was going to be our mode of transport for the next 4 hours. Therefore it was a great way to see the Key West and we had a lot of fun while checking out the outskirts of town.
We were able to see parts of that we couldn’t with the car and was certainly able to see more this way than we would of walking.
It was so much fun!!

20.7.12 Key West
We hit the road early today for our journey to the Keys. It was another hot day today. Great for the tropics.
It took us nearly 2.5 hours to get there as the road was one lane most of the way and then the limit was quite low, and it was extremely busy too which made for a longer time journey.
19.7.12 – Miami
Another hot day today, I actually pulled out the dress to wear. Got a little sunshine. We had a sleep in and then headed into Miami to find the Hard Rock to collect another glass 🙂 and then checked out the marina. It was beautiful. I found a little stall that makes street signs, so I was able to get the Jovi sign after all…hehehe!!!
We are in Miami tonight and by gingees its hot.
Its like being in Bali in the blistering heat. I was a big ball of sweat this afternoon.
I had the address for Miami Ink in the GPS as the first stop…lol. It wasn’t hard to find but you would walk right by it in the street if you didn’t have the address. It looks nothing like it does on the show. They need to trim the palm tree out the front so you can see the tattoo sign. Not sure where the Love Hate bar is, as its not next door as I thought it was and there was none of the guys there. It sure would be nice to walk in to one of these places and see them standing there and get the elusive pic.
Boring day today. I slept most of the way to our stop for the night. We had no agenda but to get as close to Miami as possible. No back roads or small towns. Just the main international highway. The scenery is much the same too.
The place we have stopped for the night is really nice though. Lovely motel room compared to our last stop. No creepy crawlies here and the water is hot for a shower.
So I am off to watch some telly for a change, while Dave gets some sleep.
Well not much to report today.
I wanted to check out a place that I had found. It was a unclaimed baggage centre. Where this company buys the unclaimed baggage from the airlines and they sort through it and then they sell it to the public and a 3rd of the price they have it valued at. So its basically finders keepers, losers weepers. It was amazing to see the items that they have found that was unclaimed. They also have stories of items some people have bought , only to find they are worth thousands. We did manage to find a really nice necklace for Dave. Their was some beautiful jewellery. I was kind of a little gutted though, as I think I expected more. They have it set up like a retail store. Me being the bargain hunter that I am, I really want to go to the auction , where they auction of the suitcases. So its like a big lucky dip. I think it would be cool to see what you would find. There are some things that I wouldn’t want to find..LOL. Anyway after taking a look around we headed off for our next major city…Miami – Florida.
We are doing lots of driving now, so only stopping to eat and stretch the legs and then somewhere to sleep, where we won’t wake up in the morning and find the car missing its wheels…LOL
Well time to get some shut eye again.
Well we didn’t get very far today. We had great intentions but this place was just too gorgeous to pass through. So many things to see and then taking the sky rail up to the top of the mountain. Amazing. What a sight to behold. It really is beautiful. At the top of the sky rail cable car is a huge ice rink inside a group of shops, where you can hire skates. There is a water slide. A great viewing platform. We spent a little time here just taking in the views and eating a ice cream, watching people fall on their butts before heading back down the mountain. By this time it was getting darker, so on the way down the city lights were on…breathtaking..and for those who know me…me and heights don’t mix. I can certainly tell you that because it was a huge cable car and fully enclosed that I was able to ride it. Dave wanted me to ride the chair lift…not in this lifetime baby!!!! Mind you when that cable car hit the high tower and started to swing a little…Jodie’s guts did a 360…not so good.
When we got to the bottom, we took in the sights of the city. I have never seen so many people, not even in LA. We stopped at a little italian place to eat. We ordered the pizza- New York style…Dave was in heaven…it was pretty damn good. He also became the class clown. We were sat right in front of the window facing the street. So Dave thought this would be great to watch the people outside. Yep you guessed it….had to make sure he was seen…too funny!!! He was in his element.
I finally dragged him away and now we have gone back to the motel. Time to unwind and get some sleep. We leave here to drive through the Smokey mountains tomorrow. Looking forward to that.
So time to see what is playing at the back of my eyelids.
