Day 12 cont... 2/23/05 57 miles
Finding a place to stay again became a challenge. Motels had no vacancy and wanted $250 for a nite. I kept shopping, but basically gave up. I called my mother for support, and of course she came thru. She found me a place to stay- Sea Isle Motel ($390 for 2 nites). The motel was located in "Old Town" so everything was in walking distance.
After settling in to the motel, I went in search of the internet. I spent 2 hours putting up the last 6 days in an internet cafe.
Not knowing what I might miss in Key West. I called my cousins Kevin & Jodi. They helped me decide what was important for me to do and see in Key West:
I of course wanted to see Fort Jefferson(located 70 miles to the west of Key West), but the sea plane was booked 4 days in advance. So I got to walk Key West for 2 days straight.
