Thumbs up

Leaving soon for Kissimmee. It was supposed to be one week Key West and one week Orlando. I rebooked about two weeks ago in fear that no timeshare would be available if I waited.

The Galleon Resort in Key West where I was supposed to be staying came back online about a little over a week ago claiming not too much damage, but even if I could rebook I am concerned about what is open.

I think the October 20th date is ambitious unless more than %70 of the restaurants and bars have reopened.

So it's two weeks in Kissimmee/Orlando at two different resorts.

Unless I'm willing to travel 2 hours, this means no deep sea fishing.

Huh - I thought I posted here. I am definitely keeping the reservation. If they hadn't opened by the 20th, I would have changed it.

Key West opened to tourists on October 1st, officially. Residents returned September 16th. 95% of power has been restored to Key West as of an article posted September 22nd. They are accepting cruise ships, too.

I went, I ate, drank all the rum, didn't get sunburnt. Now, I'm back in NC and it is dreary and rainy. I would like to go back now

Yea they would. And, it's legal to walk around with a cocktail "Just don't be an asshole" <- advice from a local bartender

We spent just enough time in the Keys in August to wish we'd had more time to spend there.

I'll add my own rule to that one:

Never use manual focus while drunk.
