Austin had the Old Timer's Breakfast with scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, hash brown casserole, grits and biscuits.
After breakfast, we made the 3-hour drive to Jacksonville.
I can't even count the number of times I heard, "Are we there yet?" from my cousin. I can't blame her, though, because we were all very excited about getting to the cruise ship!
For now, I am going to skip past Monday and Tuesday's activities, simply because we spent both days on the ship and didn't do much besides eat, hang out at the pool, and eat some more. Full recap of food coming soon, I promise.
On Wednesday morning, we arrived in Key West at 7:00 am. During our Conch Train tour into town, I learned that the island's original Spanish name was Cayo Hueso, which translates to "bone-key".
Exploring Key West
We had a chance to explore Old Town before our excursion started. There were quite a few unique, old trees in town.
We got a kick out of the wild chickens and roosters roaming around.
Do you see the baby chick?
Poor guy, he lost his mama!
Luckily, since wild chickens are so rampant in the area, no one bothers them. There was a kitty cat lying across the street from this baby chick, and he never thought twice about getting up to chase him!
We glanced around the local shops, but we didn't have much time for shopping.
