Oct 26, 2016 - Where the heck is Sugarloaf?

It’s actually about 20 minutes away from Key West in the Florida Keys. Along with Miami, the Florida Keys were on my ‘must see’ list for this trip. And the drive here was awesome. We thought we booked a place in Key West, but thankfully, our hotel is about 20 minutes away. We had lunch in Key West – the ‘new part’ – and that was very nice. Then we took a drive through the ‘old part’ – and that was pretty shite. When you see women walking down the street topless, but with their boobies painted (as if they were dressed), you know the place...

Jan 21, 2013 - January 17th

Travel day today. We drove from South Bay to Sugarloaf Key in the Keys, about 20 miles from Key West. It was a 194 mile drive. We'// spend the next two nights at the KOA in Sugarloaf. We sat up camp then left for Sally's brother, Tom, who lives on Stock Island, the next Key to Key West. Sally's cousin Becky and her daughter Samantha, who are vacationing on Key West, were also there. We all had supper and sat around and talked. We returned to camp at 10:30. It rained pretty hard during the night, cooling things off.

Jan 21, 2013 - January 18th

We woke in the morning and came back to Tom, and Tana's for a bit Sally did laundry and Terry had his hair cut. We then went to visit Lynn and Steve Springer. They have a place on Key West. We stayed there several hours. The day was quite cool by Key West standards. We all had sweat shirts and long pants, and were still cool. Later in the evening Sally and I , Tom and Tana, Beckey and Samantha, went to a restaurant called El' Siboney's. If you ever get to Key West stop at El Siboney's and order the #1. It's a pulled pork, with rice, black...

Mar 10, 2010 - Lazy Lakes Week 2

Wednesday March 10, 2010 Time for an update. Since our last update the weather has been very nice. We have received a few rain drops – that’s it. A few days the skies were dark and threatening but, as often happens down here, the skies cleared and the rest of the day would be sunny or partly cloudy. The overnight lows were 53 – 58 with highs upper 60s. Now we are now seeing lows in the 60s (70 degrees here now at 7:45 AM) and highs in the mid-70s, darned near perfect weather. We have been walking with Bayley about 4 miles early each...

Mar 4, 2010 - Lazy Lakes RV Resort on Sugarloaf Key

Monday March 1 We had a low of 53 degrees overnight. We left Riptide around 10:00 or so and enjoyed the drive down Route 1, over the many bridges and the aqua-green water. This is truly a beautiful area and is so different than the rest of Florida. We passed our favorite spot in the Keys – Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge (on Big Pine Key) around 12:30 and by 1:00 had arrived at our destination and home for th next two weeks – Lazy Lakes RV Resort. Check in was smooth and we moved to our site - #39. Another tight site but again, with the help of...

Dec 24, 2009 - Christmas in the Keys

Malcolm and I had done our bits of Christmas shopping before we left the Cape Canaveral area (our last night there was at a WalMart, of course), so when we got to the Keys we could start doing some relaxing. We made sure all of our outside lights were up, including our patio lanterns, and set up our little tree between the two front seats. We did a bit of cleaning out, and relaxed for most of the 24th, We did go over to the little beach nearby to watch Santa Claus come in on a boat for the little children in the campsite! Our next door...

Jun 12, 2008 - Sugar Loaf Key, FL

What can I say about the Keys. I love the crystal blue waters that allow for so many recreational activities. And at our KOA - the people were so friendly. This KOA was exceptional, although we had to pay a little more for our piece of heaven it was well worth it. We were able to tie our Zodiac and two kayaks to the dock in front of the motor home and when we got parched we walked directly behind the motor home to the pool and pub. We were able to see lobster crawling in the rocks surrounding the dock, 4-5 feet Tarpon and an assortment of...
