I have added a QR code to this sign rider. The sign sits on the highway and points to a house a half a mile down an unpaved road.   I wanted people to know that this is not a private drive AND what awaited them should they take a ride down the road. I also wanted them to have some details concerning the size of the the lot, that is was direct bay front and that we have had a price adjustment. It is half the price it used to be, but I didn't want to say "reduced".   I have used a photo on the sign in the past, but the photograph colors fade in the hot Florida sun. Since the QR code links to a REALBird tour, any changes I make are immediately available to the anyone who scans the code.

We went to Ziggy & Mad Dog's for dinner for Father's Day dinner. It was fabulous UNTIL I got the bill. OK, so, what does a bottle of Ketel 1 cost? I'm thinking about $35.00 for 1.75 liters. I was charged $19.00 for one drink! 3 glasses of Hess Cab was $32.00 Our bill was $90.00 for 2 drinks and 5 glasses of wine. We love the food and the atmosphere, but, what are they thinking of with the drink prices? OK, I learned my lesson, no drinks for US! Enjoy the food and GO HOME!

The Florida Keys are the location where the Carribbean technically commences, just seventy mls to the north from Cuba and stop basically short of Miami. In the event you believed that Florida seemed to be relaxed, you haven't encountered living while in the Florida Keys also named "Conch Republic"    Travelingsouth out of Miami and as you get away from all the cement cities, while you journey through a multitude of bridges whichconnect the isles which are referred to as the Florida Keys, right down to Key West, the most southern place in The United States.   The actual Florida Keys ended up being notoriously, the place to find Hemmingway for countless years and also the isles haven't evolved a good deal throughout the years and his property at Key West lures inas lots of tourists today...

The Holiday Isle in Islamorada, occupies a very dear place in my heart.  As a boy and teenager in the 70s and 80s, my family would always stop by on Sundays to see the catch that was brought in by the Charter boats, and have a drink at the Tiki Bar.  It's always had a touch of rowdiness to it. It pretty much WAS the definition of Party! It has such a special place in my heart that it was featured in the first song I ever wrote as a songwriter. So, it was with great heartache that I have watched this grand alter of Bacchanalia, wither away from its former self. I am now elated to see some true motivation to restore it rather than all of the talk and indecisiveness we have heard for so many years. Below is a piece that I saw in Keysnews.net that really gives great detail about the renovat...

There were 5 closed real estate transactions in Islamorada, in the Fabulous Florida Keys during the week of May 22 through May 28, 2011. There was a lot sold in the Windley Key trailer park for $60,000, but we won't count that one. A Sea Gulls unit number 202 closed at $72,500. The highest closed sale was 1112 Venetian Blvd. The selling price was $1,910,000. I wonder why the extra $10,000.! Prices are down! Give me a call to help you find your piece of Paradise.
