Day 5 continued...

Where mistakes were made 🥴

So we made it to Margaritaville which is where the ferry leaves from.



We were a little early so decided to have a quick cocktail on the sunset deck

These were actually rubbish pina coladas but we still drank them obvs. DS had a rubbish virgin daiquiri too. Im not sure the bartender knew what he was doing?
Despite the hopeless cocktails, its a great place to watch the sunset

I thought Id taken pics of the ferry journey on my phone but I didnt so heres the back of the camera! (Im doing this in the car to take my attention away from the horror of undertaking cars)



Its a really pretty restaurant and the food was really good.

I dont seem to be able to upload any pictures at the mo so Ill add more when we arrive





OH and I made mistake number 2 here...
Whilst delicious, a key lime margarita is really a dessert.
I felt mildly Sick after this!
The rim had a salty graham cracker crust

There was some bread which I didnt eat. I think DS inhaled it


For starters we had

OH
beetroot, ricotta, almond and something else 🤔
Sorry to be vague


Me
Crab and lobster cake with a spicy mirin slaw


DS
Fried green tomatoes with burrata


These were all really fresh and delicious. The lobster was really tender.
We all agreed the beets were the best though.

Mistake 3 happened when OH ordered a bottle of Albario

For mains I had

Lobster with a red curry sauce, sweet potato risotto and greens.
The sweet potato risotto wasnt my favourite but the rest was lovely.



OH had
Scallops with corn and polenta pure with some veg accompaniments

He loved this. We heard someone on a neighbouring table complaining that the scallops were gritty but were fairly sure that would
have been the polenta


DS had wagyu beef with mash I guess and asparagus.
He loved this.
I was sure Id taken a menu pic but again, clearly not!



We paid up and caught the ferry back to the Margaritaville and decided to hit Duval Street 🤦🏼≈♀️
We popped into Kilwins for some chocolates, a caramel and walnut Krispie treat and a caramel apple.
These werent eaten until the next afternoon.

Next it was Willie Ts
We were drawn in by the live music



Thats a lot of dollars pinned up. Surely people try and take them?


Way too many pina coladas were consumed. OH also got involved in group shots of Santas Balls! I declined and Im so glad I did 🥴



We wandered back when DS decided he was ready! OH suddenly suffered from FOMO but I dragged him away!
According to my phone he may have stroked some sleeping chickens on the way home and I definitely recall him giggling at the ladies of the night 😬🙈

It was a very full and exciting day and we definitely paid for it in the morning 🥴

What a fantastic day with the sea plane. We've never made it to the keys, but I'm sorely tempted reading your report. It sounds like bliss. Apart from those gherkins of course, I might give those a miss if we ever get there.

Really enjoying reading along with your trip. Im still giggling to myself about the beagle and possible French connection-I definitely think it was the top but only as we have a bit of a family joke with striped t-shirts too...sorry Im wittering on! So much to say, all the hotels look great, I would love to eat at the Matador Room, oh and those pizzas at the secret place look amazing...I do like a bit of pineapple on a pizza and the star shaped one looks fab. The seaplane sounds fantastic, we need be more adventurous and visit the keys. Cant wait to read more...
