It’s Monday the 22nd and we decided to start our day in Key West, with desserts. Yum. Best breakfast ever! We went to a Café that has been around for over 100 years. My parents were craving key lime pie so that’s what they ordered (well I’m actually not sure, I’m pretty sure my dad got a coconut pie). Eric ordered alongside them and got the same thing. I however ordered an apple cobbler. I’ve started to really enjoy all things apple. Apple pie, apple cobbler, and apple cider. It tastes so homey and yummy. I stand by my order. I think mine was the best. My cobbler was crispy and sugary. It had cinnamon and a big glob of ice cream on top. Bon Appetit!
After our sugary but delicious snack, we parted ways as we had done for the last two days. However, unlike the past couple days Eric, my mom, and I did not check out historical landmarks. Instead we were tourists and just went door to door in shops near the water. My mom and I ended up buying some really pretty dresses that are perfect for the boat. My dress is pink but my mom got two, one is grey and the other is blue.
We finished our shopping and went to join my dad at a bar. We sat at that bar and listened to a woman sing while we munched on some fries. After we left we went straight back to the boat to end our day.
The next day we set out on our sail to St. Petersburg. We started our sail in the early morning and we had a peaceful day. We caught a few fish, none of which we could eat. Everyone took multiple naps to prepare for the night. The height of the day was when a sparrow flew onto our boat and stayed for almost the entire night.
On Wednesday the 24th we continued our sail, but we had an issue. At about 2:00AM a part of our boat broke and pulled the front of our boat with it. My parents had to rig some lines to take pressure off. Throughout this terrifying event… I was sleeping. We had to put down the sails and motor the remaining time. We debated going back to Burnt Store Marina, but thankfully we decided to continue towards St. Petersburg.
