Yesterday was exhausting. I got home Wednesday evening at 9:45PM and then had to be up at 2:45AM to head for the airport in Norfolk. Our flights went off without delay and we landed in Key West at 11:25 AM. The weather was clear and sunny with a temperature of 83 degrees! Our first day at the Equator was pleasant and given our exhausted state, we hung by the pool all afternoon after settling in. The view from our top floor balcony is above. One nice aspect of The Equator is the 5:00PM cocktail hour that is included in the room rate (breakfast is as well), and we took full advantage of it!
After multiple cocktails, we walked to Martin's - a Germany style restaurant on Duval Street towards the opposite end from where the craziest St. Patrick's Day partying was going on. Dinner, as is always the case at Martin's was fabulous. Not that we needed more alcohol, we had a great bottle Riesling. On the back to The Equator we made a quick pass through the 801. Once back at our room, we basically passed out. :)
This morning I have dealt with about 220 office e-mails and reviewed a few documents for clients. Today we will wander around and revisit some local sites. This evening we are meeting friends at the Bourbon Street Pub before going to dinner at the Key West Yacht Club which has reciprocal privileges with the Hampton Yacht Club.
