Arizona To Florida Road Trip October 2019 ~ Part 7

One More Day In Key Largo Florida …



After a hardy FREE breakfast at our hotel, we took a ride around the area and went over to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.
We soooo wanted to get in the water, but can you see the vegetation? I can’t recall what they called it, but we were told that it typically happens in early October, boo hiss! The water was so murky from all that rain, that the Glass Bottom Boat tours were cancelled. Oh well, it was a nice Park.



Our last night’s dinner in Key Largo was at The Fish House.
THAT, was spectacular!
DH started with the Smoked Fish Chunks, he absolutely loved it.
Then he moved on to Mussels Marinara, which he also loved.
I had the house specialty Snapper “Matecumbe” topped with fresh tomatoes, shallots, fresh basil, capers, olive oil and lemon juice, then baked.
This Fish House favorite has been featured on the Food Network with Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!
We ended our meal by sharing a slice of Key Lime Pie. I was told that when in The Keys, have a piece at each place that you eat, they’re all different … we’ll see.



Our last night. We sat out back of our hotel and watched the sun go down once more.

Next stop … KEY WEST FLORIDA!!!!

      Ya know Krystle I sooooooo wanted to get in, but all that vegetation was a problem for me, not to mention Hurricane Nestor and left the water pretty muddy. I don’t how you would have been able to see anything. But the pie was good! 😀

        I couldn’t have done the vegetation either, I totally understand. But when I clicked on the link to learn more about the state park it looked super cool. Will have to add it to my list. 😊
