Key West - Day 3

, Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Monday was the start of my anesthesia conference. It was a good conference, with good presenters and the meetings lasted from 8am to 12:30pm. That gave Margaret and the girls time to have a leisurely morning and scope out the day's activities. Since we had returned the rental car, the island was explored strictly by foot. It may have been nice to rent bicycles, but walking worked just fine.

The 3 girls used Monday morning to get a good feel for the place. They walked out to the Southernmost point for the picture that everybody comes home with. They saw Ernest Hemingway's home and took a picture for me since I was reading one of his books. By the time I got out of my conference they already knew the island pretty well, and were ready to relax awhile. They had picked up some groceries at a cuban grocery store a couple of blocks away, so we had a picnic and lounged on the beach at the resort for a couple of hours.

When we'd had enough of the beach we walked the length of Duval Street, stopping at the Fury booth to sign up for activities later in the week. For Saturday we signed up for the cruise they call the Ultimate Adventure which is a 6-hour catamaran cruise that includes breakfast, lunch, snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking, and playing on various water toys. From the registration booth we went immediately to Upper Crust Pizza to start carbo loading.

We made it to Mallory Square just in time for the sunset celebration where we watched a few acts before walking back to the hotel where we kicked back and watched a little TV.
