Russ and I will be staying at the Merlin Guesthouse during our stay in Key West. I had a love bird named Merlin once and think perhaps this is meant to be. Because it’s the summer season it’s only $99 a night.

According to the review the standard queen room we are staying in is very small, the house is old, and the walls are paper thin. But truly none of that bothers me. I’m most excited about the pool and hammock in the yard, and the outdoor continental breakfast every morning. I will post pictures upon return and let you know how it was.

Like I said yesterday it is only one block from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street which is very exciting. The Lonely Planet guide book I have been reading warns that if I hang out on Duval street too long I may be puked on by drunk frat boys, so perhaps this might not be our favorite places on the island but I hear that the Beach at the state park is beautiful and not as popular with the tourists.

I found an all day “do nothing” cruise that I really wanted to go on, but it’s already booked on the only day we could go. So that is a bit sad. But there is plenty to do so it’s not a problem. In case you’re interested here is the link…

I have a feeling this might be the kind of place we want to go back to over and over to explore all the different islands.

I've been to Key West several times and I can tell you, it's not as bad as the tour book describes. My favorite activity we ever did was a Waverunner tour around the entire island - it was awesome!

You are going to have a wonderful time - ENJOY!
