ICW Southbound – Key West Bight – Day 11



We woke up and had a nice leisurely breakfast on board and enjoyed the morning rocking at the dock. We went for our daily oysters at Raw Bar and snack at Schooners and then headed to Simonton Street beach. The wind had died down a bit and it was much more enjoyable to hang out in the sand. Simonton Street also has a beach shack called Lagerheads that has sandwiches and drinks. The owner is a car lover and we unfortunately witnessed someone hitting his old VW Bug that had been painted with the Lagerheads logo. The streets are tight in Key West and this guy obviously had not mastered reversing with a boat and trailer.


We later strolled back to Lucy’s for happy hour (we have learned that restaurants with a child are more enjoyable if you go on offpeak times!) and then strolled to B.O.’s Fish Wagon for dinner. If you haven’t made it to BO’s it’s definitely worth a stop. The open air restaurant is more of an eclectic shack of whatever they could find to add to it. Its very islandy and we love it. The shrimp sandwich is amazing! 


We got back just in time for some turtle races at Turtle Kraals (directly in front of our boat) Every few days they would race the turtles down their custom made turtle track. If your number Turtle won you got a key and a chance to open the treasure chest! Alas, it was not our lucky day for pirate booty.
