The Keys, day one

Left home this morning about 7:00am. Carol needed some water shoes in case we ran across someplace where she could go wading. Saw a sign in Key Largo for a sandals store; Carol found a nice pair of Tevas. We have the Yelp app. on the iPad. If you have never tried Yelp you should. It has all sorts of local information like restaurants, grocery stores, barber shops, laundromats, etc. We looked under restaurants and found Ma's Fish Shack that had very good reviews. It turned out to be a real locals type place. We were the only out-of-towners there. We split an order of great conch fritters and both had the fish tacos. The waitress asked about dessert. I said "no thanks" but Carol quickly ordered Key Lime pie which we thoroughly enjoyed. An excellent lunch. We'll be back.
Our site at the Long Key State Park is very nice. There are large sea grape's & mangroves between us and our neighbors. Once it cooled off some, we sat in the shade and watched the fisherman. The egrets had better luck then the fisherman.
A very enjoyable day. Nice to be traveling once again.
