Our stop in Key West was by far our favorite. I am sure there are many stories to tell from this day and many that Karen and I will talk about for years, and some of those that we will never tell another soul! HA HA HA...but seriously, not tellin ya'll everything from this day!
We got into port at 12 pm and our excursion of the pub crawl was suppose to start at 12:30. We had to go through immigration here since we had been out of the US ports and this was our first stop back on US soil, this delayed everyone disembarking the ship but luckily since we had an excursion we were priority cruisers and got to go before the masses. After we got off the ship I pulled out our tickets and the excursion had been delayed to 1:30 so we had plenty of time anyway.
The Key West Pub Crawl was awesome! He was very upbeat and must have the patience of a saint to put up with the drinkers during the tour. We had a lot of spring breakers in our group and they did get a bit rowdy at times but were great kids over all. We got to see the studio where Jimmy Buffet did his recordings and the house where Key Lime Pie started. There were great little shops along Duval Street and we had time to browse during our stops as well, although I don't think many did much browsing.
Ya know how you hear "It's a small world" well see the three guys in this picture...IT IS PROOF! I started talking to them, well simply because I will talk to a dang tree stump if it sits next to me for more than 10 seconds, and found out they were all from Oklahoma. But not only were they from Oklahoma but they graduated from a school called Butner which was only about 10 miles from where I graduated! For the life of me I can't remember their names. I can however remember the name of the delectable drink I have in my hand...Key Lime Colada!! OH EM GEE It was like heaven in a frosty slushy drink! They did tell me it was worth spending a full vacation in Key West instead just of one day in port.
After getting back to the cabin, showering and getting dressed we decided it was time to get a bite to eat and find some entertainment for the evening. We checked the schedule and decided on going to the comedy shows again and to the Hasbro Game Show before the comedy club opened.
The rest of the evening was spent at the comedy show and visiting with other cruisers.
