Key West – Day 2

We have our sites here at the Sugarloaf Key KOA for three days…….. Wednesday through Friday nights.  Here are some pictures of our sites and the pool area……

As I have stated before, we are here because of some coupons that we “won” on a slot machine at a KOA booth at the TAMPA RV Show recently.  The coupons allowed us to pay for one night ($115) and get two more for free!  Along with that, we got a coupon for a free 1/2 day rental of a boat.  I thought that it would be a plastic paddle boat, but it turned out to be our choice of any boat in their marina!!    

We decided to use the boat coupon today.  Here is a picture of Sue and Patsy watching the guy clean the dew off the seats of ‘our’ boat……

Near the marina, there was a small island with a lot of pelicans in the bushes.  Here are some shots that Patsy got……….

We left out on our “4-hour” boat ride, and the following are some of the pictures that I took:

After resting from the boat ride, we went into Key West for dinner, and to see the night-time activity.  That will be another post.
