Key West, Florida
OK so this is where I want to retire. Took the train tour, good thing it was not more expensive than it was, as it was it was almost over priced. The shopping was wonderful. The shopping coordinator had really done his job and set up all kinds of specials to get you in the door. We did all of them and lived with the moto shop till you drop. We decided we wanted to eat a Sloppy Joes for lunch and we were willing to wait. We hovered at the door until someone finally left, I think it too 15 min or so. I got brain freeze from the rum runners punch and had the best chili dog I think I have ever had. It is a good thing no one yelled fire because there is no possible was to jam any more bodies in that place. While shopping I fell in love with a little emerald ring at Diamond International. I don’t often purchase jewelry on the spur of the moment but I loved this ring. When I got home I took the ring to a local jeweler I trust, Ferndale Jeweler in Fortuna and had her tell me if it was a good buy as the cruise line has a guarantee that if you are unhappy within a year for any reason they will refund all of your money no questions if the store was one of their approved ones. She took one look and said I had paid for the stone and the gold and promotional quality diamonds that were accenting were an extra. DI had sized it in less than an hour while were finishing our shopping. They had not stretcher the ring but had cut, added gold and polished it so you could not tell. But the band had not been thinned, all for less than $300.
