After a great night sleep I jumped out of bed at 8 and headed down with book, MP3 player in and for a few cups of coffee and a day in the sun by the pool. Since this is the off season in the keys and the middle of the week it’s quiet and almost deserted at breakfast and around the pool. Carolyn came down a hour or so later for breakfast and then headed back to the room to do stuff.
I spent all morning at the pool and got through my book “Where is Joe Merchant?: A Novel Tale“
By Jimmy Buffett. Yes I know that it’s a little cliché to be reading a Jimmy Buffett book in the Keys. 🙂
Carolyn and I had a burger at the pool side Tiki bar. The food was good and the bar tender was a good guy. We met a nice couple from Indiana that have been coming to the Keys and staying either at the Banna Bay Resort or the Marathon Key Beach Club which shares the pool area.
Since the pool is shared by both locations I have seen more people from the Beach Club then the hotel. On Tuesday I watched a woman doing Yoga by the pool while I ate breakfast a very interesting thing to watch. Today she came out and started doing laps in the pool. She did 2 hours straight in the pool going back and forth…I was surprised that she could walk when she got out of the pool.
After a day in the sun and in the pool we headed back to the room to freshen up and to go to dinner. We headed back to The Island Fish Company since we didn’t feel like finding a new place for the night….mistake…the meal yesterday was better then tonight’s. I got the seafood platter which was over cooked.
After dinner I spent some time by the pool just relaxing and watching the locals at the Tiki bar. Now it’s off to bed and another a day relaxing at the pool.
