Sometimes, to get the true flavor of a foreign place, you need to frequent tourist spots and do touristry things, even if you don't really feel like it. At least that's what I tell my husband as I drag him from gift shop to gift shop. There is one art store in Islamorada that reminds me of a scene right out of Portlandia. Every piece of artwork in the store is tagged by the same artist couple, like Joan and David, except their names are not Joan and David. And it's horrible stuff.
Paintings framed in old lobster trap scraps, mostly. People must buy them. Just like people must enjoy Lorelei's on the beach. Read more in my personal blog today about The Difference Between 21 and 61 at Lorelei's Restaurant. Photos included.
