Roadtrip!

Even with spending so much time on the road and so little time in my own bed I love road trips......and this last weekend was no exception..........
Jimmy Buffett in the CD player and heading South trying to outrun the rain we ended up in Islamorada.
Since we were in the Keys it was time to sample some local flavor, Key West Lager. The beer was flowing the and the Miami Dolphins were playing as we watched the Tarpon's circling alongside the dock.You can't get more Florida than that.
Even though we we're in lobster season this 28' beast felt safe to show himself at the Artisan's Village.
My friends at the Hilton Key Largo took care of all the details.....from a beautiful room in the treetops to the perfect sunset they hooked us up.

We were all set for typical fresh seafood diner when the folks at the front desk suggested Tower of Pizza... pizza in the Keys...OK I'm game. We were not disappointed, the salad was fresh and the pizza was some of the best I've ever had.

Lots of miles and lots of meals.......


According to my FourSquare account this is my 7th week in airports...Ughhhhh.......but I'm so lucky to have a job that I love.
I'm doing a North Carolina tour this week and found myself in Charlotte for the evening. Urbanspoon pointed me to a neighboring British Pub. Down a long set of cement stairs I found myself entering a dark but cozy pub. The menu was very extensive focusing on standard British fare but also adding something as exotic a Jamaican Chicken Nachos. The "on tap" beer selection offered a few nice surprises. One of my dining partners went for the Ostrich Meatloaf and the other gobbled down Fish & Chips. Monday just so happens to be trivia night, I'm not a big trivia guy but the evening was fun.
