Another traveling day. Thanks to my brother for the couch last night and a warm shower and shave this morning.
We arrived at Key West about 10pm. And promptly discovered the folks around here don't take to van campers (my brother had mentioned this to me). Every where we tried to park there were signs about no overnight parking, vehicles towed, etc. And I saw several police cars with "Parking Enforcement" on them. I guess they are serious. Kinda snobby, actually :)
So we turned around and drove back down US 1 away from Key West. Finally found a place called "Eduardo's Latina Cantina," which has a large sign proudly advertising, "Thai Food, Thurs - Sun." Go figure.
Today was educational:
- I assumed US 1 out to Key West would be rather desolate with tropical vegetation on both sides. Parts are, but large sections are commercially developed (gas stations, fast food joints, bait and tackle shops, marinas, etc.)
- I assumed that gasoline on the road to Key West would be significantly more expensive than gasoline in Miami. This is partially true. I bought gas for 1.929 in Miami. On US 1 going to Key West I saw gas as cheap as 1.789 (frown), but gas in Key West proper is 2.119.
Gonna watch a DVD and hit the sack. 'Night.
My brother's place.

At work Sally Ann, a blonde, naturally :), stuck a ball point pen in the copier and broke it. She called for service and left this note on the copier.
