Journey to Key West – USA Travel Journal 2012

20.7.12

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!!

Today we headed out with to Santa Monica to check out the pier and muscle beach.

We have hired a car for the week, and we are going to give this driving on the wrong side of the road a try. Look out everyone there are tourist on the freeway!!!!

Managed to find our way there with the mobile for guidance…must go and get GPS otherwise this phone bill is going bankrupt me.

It was beautiful weather today and I actually experience my first LA sunburn…just a little on my shoulders.

Took Dave to the Pier and showed him around.

We took a few pics and then had some ice cream before we tackled the walk to Venice Beach.

Wow I did not anticipate how long it was….man I sure am sore tonight. I think we must of walked at least 20kms . At this rate I will come back slim and sexy….Lots of exercise.

It has been an extremely long day and I am exhausted. I am now going to go and crash. I reckon I am going to sleep well.

Bye for now
