Originally, we planned to stay three nights in Key West (August 11, 12 and 13th) followed by three nights in Miami (August 14, 15 and 16). When we swapped the Miami and Key West stays, we created a dilemma. If we stayed three nights in Key West, we would have been faced with a 400 mile trip on Tuesday. Given the speed limits in the Keys, this might have translated into an eight or nine hour trip with stops.
We made a decision to change our plans slightly. We cut our stay in Key West to two nights and made a reservation in Palm Beach for Monday night. This was still almost 240 miles and even with only a quick 30 minute stop for lunch took us more than five hours.
Sharon made reservations at The Breakers. After having a breakfast, we left Key West about 9:30 a.m. and got to the hotel about 2:45 p.m. We stopped for lunch at The Fish House in Key Largo.
While Sharon did a yoga class, I took Jack to the their arcade. When we checked in, they gave Jack a card worth about $30 in tokens. He had a great time.
We had dinner at the The Seafood Bar in the hotel. This restaurant was right on the water with a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. Sharon and I both agreed that this was probably the second best meal that we had on the trip!
