Lookin' for our Lost Shaker of Salt
Last stop: Seattle
Next up: Tropical Paradise!
Are the Florida Keys ready for us? We think so...
As some of you may remember, sports_schmorts aka Mrs. Randompants aka NtRPants aka Nellie came to visit me on the left coast. We hung out around the house, did some belly dancing, went to the aquarium, stuck our toes in the Pacific ocean, went to see Paramore and No Doubt, and we had you Q people put together for us a Seattle Scavenger Hunt (read the blog). Well...I have since moved across the country, so we decided it was time to terrorize the right coast!

Considering the fact that the Florida Keys are a popular vacation destination, I'm sure most of you have either been here or have heard about it. So, it's that time again! Time for you, fellow Q'ers, to make a Florida Keys Scavenger Hunt! 

Some examples from Seattle were:
Catch a fish at Pike Place
Pic of us with the Microsoft sign
Pic at Jimi Hendrix Memorial Gravesite
Chalk Outlines
Pic with Police Officers

So, as you can see, some were city specific (famous Seattle stuff) and some were things we could do virtually anywhere - so as long as it's located in the Florida Keys or we can get it/do it anywhere, give us your task for our Hunt in the comments below! We'll get pics of each item and share them with you when the hijinx are complete!

Deadline to add things to the list is August 6...Hurry!

Cut all your jeans into shorts, cut all your sleeves off your shirts, buy 50 pair of flipflops (all same color and style in case you lose one or two here and there), get 50 of those foam coozy things, and buy one of these and wear it all the time...

... and get a weird looking straw hat... and enjoy yourself.

Throw a cooked fish back into the ocean

Stand on a street corner wearing northern winter clothes and a sign saying "I'm Lost!, Please Help?"
 - I suggested this one to Nellie a few months back, and she pulled the "I can't fit winter clothes in my luggage" excuse

I'll think of a few more later

First stop, the Florida Keys Welcome Station to get your coupon books, and listen to the very old ladies tell you where you need to go.  Then don't go there.  Just get the coupons.

Second stop   Islamorada Fish Company-- Order the Key Lime Pie  (Crust contains nuts)  Mile Marker 81.5

Just south of there is Robbies- HAND FEED  5 FOOT TARPON- lay down on the dock and drop them in their mouths
.

Also, just know in advance that the only directions you will get from locals is E-W-N-S and mile markers.  No lefts or rights
If you want a cold beer, stop by my house in West Palm Beach.

Get a picture of one or both of you in the Key West Cemetery next to a monument with a quirky saying or a odd look.
This place is noted for a monument of sailors who died from the sinking of the USS Maine in 1898 and is home to some weird sayings like: "I told you I was sick."

In front of Sloppy Joes, is a dude name Dennis.  If you pay him a dollar he will tell you a dirty joke.
Bring lots of singles.  He is infamous.     Check out this place:http://www.sunsetwatersportskeywest.com/key-west-party-boat.html

Nellie's here! All of these are awesome - with triple the time, but limited funds, we'll try to get everything done that we can! If anyone has any last minute requests, post here....it doesn't necessarily have to be "Key West" specific :)

We did the Key Lime Pie thing, but we suck and forgot to take pics.
We didn't do the Tarpon thing...we kind of ran out of time. She didn't get into Key Largo until after 8:00pm and then we were kind of in a rush to get her back up there on the day she left. And...we didn't really find time to make the 2 hour drive during the week :(

I don't know if this is a stone crab, but it was in my carport one day while Nellie was here:


Did the Key Lime Pie and sunset at Mallory Square, but we don't have pics :(

And this guy isn't hunky, but he is shirtless...we did what we could. Just for the record, I had to crop this pic so that he didn't violate the code of conduct:

I'm sure there were more drinks up and down the street, but Nellie's camera was trying to die on us so we needed to be conservative.
