Quirky Stuff Tips (9)

Watch funny cars cruising the streets.

Did you notice the beautiful cars in Key West? Some cars cruising thru the streets and some cars are for decoration. For example this car on the picture. It is an Alfa Romeo, and it is totally decorated with little pieces of mosaic. So now you know, not only look at the bars, shops, and people, but also look at the street to see what's coming by.

Peppers of Key West

One of the things we love to do is to go get some naked wings and then go to Peppers and sample their wares. I recommended it to my aunt for her to go when she was down here, and she not only went, but she bought some of their sauces.

Shell House

The conch train was started when we lived in Key West in the late 60's. In those days it went all the way out to the Stock Island end of the Island. One of the sights I remember seeing was this strange house with lots of sea shells or something. It doesn't seem to be on the tour anymore.

chickens everywhere...

There are, or were many chickens on the island. One day I was waiting for the bus (La guagua---pronounced La Wa Wa) and a big bright red and black rooster proundly strutted across the street....at the same time a huge semi truck (yes they do come to that island) was flying down the road and slammed on the brakes to let the little guy pass...It was a strange moment, insignificant to some...but there was comedy in it. The rooster then looked both ways and continued on his path.
I do believe I saw the driver wipe sweat from his brow...

This little place on the end of Duval St. is for the chickens, these people are all about the birds, and there are stories and gifts and other oddities pertaining to them. I guess you would take an injured one here? Anyhow...it's an unusual little place you really wouldn't see anywhere else...that I know of....

they're so sweet...!

I can't help it. They make me giggle. I'd be walking with my friends along the marina at around one or two in the morning, and suddenly we could hear the cockadoodledoo's off in the distance...I swear some of these roosters sounded more haggard than we did. Maybe someone spilled some tequila???

Adult Entertainment is in jeopardy

Apparently there are debates about censorship on the island about “Adult entertainment” Just look for the Blind C0ck…but they must drive to your front door.

Monique's car

The wind screen is marvellous but the driver must be tall enough to have the head above.

Avec une telle voiture, il faut se tenir à carreau.

The usual T-Shirt shops

Key West has it's share of T-Shirt shops. It's just that here I think they are a bit more imaginative if not "RAW" with their t and undies messages.....see picture.
