Knowles House at Key West, Florida, USA

Since I retired allmost a year ago, I’ve been “Grandpa Vagabond”. I love to travel, see and discover new cultures, rediscover where I’ve been before, compare behaviours, taste new food, watch the nature and also relaxe.

As my regular redears do know, I hope you are still out there after a long absence, I have travelled a lot. Both with Anna and a friend from Holland.

The latter is a great challenge, since my Dutch friend is a Female, and I’m a Male. Sometimes I wish I could have been a neutral “object” due to all negative thinking regarding such a travelling friendship.

So after about 8 weeks travelling with Anna last year, it was about time to go together again. We figured out our destination should be Key West and Miami Beach.

Well, this post is about a very special Bed and Breakfast in Key West: House at 1004 Eaton Street.

I had search for the Right place for Anna and me to relaxe and enjoy Key West, for some Weeks, to stay for only 4 Nights. That in it self  is a challenge.

We  wanted privacy and as well have the opportunity to meet others. Besides we like “Clothe optional”  possibilities. Yaeh, we need Sunshine and Vitamine C all over Body during the dark Winter we have at 60 degrees North.
