Our last meal in Key Largo was at Ballyhoo’s Seafood Grille. The restaurant is located right across the street from our hotel, the Bay Harbor Lodge and has all-you-can-eat-crab! Since we are Marylanders and crab snobs we did not go for the crab tonight but had plenty of seafood.
My ginger-cucumber mojito was very sweet but refreshing. The non-seafood sausage and chicken gumbo that BC ordered was my favorite thing of the whole meal.
He ordered the jerk mahi mahi for his entrée and a whole lot of black beans. He did not eat all of them (thank goodness I say as the person sharing space with him!).
My meal was odd, in a good way. It was called a salad but had cold spaghetti mixed in with the spinach, avocado, grilled mango, peanuts, and grilled shrimp.
Joe vs the Volcano salad:
BC ordered some sorbet for dessert since he convinced himself that he does not like Key Lime Pie. I do not believe this and will test out some Key Lime Pie in Key West.
Overall, a pretty good dinner. Some beers on the porch with a sunset.
Here I am walking the dock right before sunset:
Since it was an early night I woke up bright and early, ready for some stand up paddle-boarding.
I paddled around for about an hour. I saw a dolphin swimming by. I almost fell off my board getting my camera turned on and pointed that way.
Dolphin photo capture success!
Besides the dolphin there were a few kayakers on the bay. Other than that I had the place to myself.
I made my way back to the Bay Harbor Lodge for some coffee and homemade scones. They make hundreds of them fresh every morning. I had the Key Lime Coconut (and snuck a raspberry one for later).
The roadtrip through the Keys to Key West continues.
