#6 – There is a difference when it comes to alligators

If you ask me what my favorite part of traveling in south Florida was, I would say “well all of it”. But I would really  have to say it was “exploring everything on, or off the Tamiami Trail”. From Tampa to Miami there is a lot to see, and from Siesta Key through Fort Meyers down to Everglades City.  US Hwy 41 TAT is the way to go ending up on 8th street in Miami.

How else would you get to the smallest post office in the United States. Located in Ochopee,Fl. 34141. It may only be a whopping 7′  X 8′ structure, but you have to have a place to mail post cards and bills… right? Also, when you are here you know you are close to seeing the alligators. You need to know what they call Alligator Alley / I-75 is still just the interstate, drive fast get there quick, bypass everything…There is a difference in the road you choose and the milemarkers you use creating your mile marker memories.

Remember when visiting the gators – Es ilegal alimeter o molester lav vida silvestre. Because an alligator does not know the difference between a hand, and a hand out.

#4 – Wanna do lunch with a manatee

Now how fun could a little lunch on the water turn out to be. We stopped by to have a world famous “Hogfish Sandwich”  at a place on Stock Island that a good friend recommended. While sitting at the Hogfish Grill we spotted this manatee swimming in the water. Well this dude swims up and starts drinking from the water hose without a care in the world. Next thing you know we have a crowd around the table and a cat that is trippin’ out to say the least. Turns out to be quiet an entertaining lunch. I don’t think I have ever seen so many iphones whipped out during lunch. And Yes the food was awesome.

#3 – Another Day in Key West Florida

For those of you that have been to Key West these pictures are nothing new, however be warned they could possibly bring back memories of  good times, and inspiration only the sun, sand, and a good watering hole can provide. Not to mention the fresh seafood…and we are not talking frozen in a bag from China either. Look the law states “you can only eat fresh catch while in the Keys OR you will be fed to the chickens and roosters”. You can trust me on this, I am NOT a lawyer.

For those of you who have not been WELL, it’s time to plan a trip for some R&R even though most people have to rest when they return. The Conch Repulic is awaiting your arrival. DO keep in mind Key West is only a small part of the Florida Keys there are about 120mm in the Keys, and thats a lot of fun to be had.
