I took the Skyway to the final stop and found a bus terminal. I decided to go the beach and have breakfast there. I waited for 45 minutes for a bus to Jacksonville Beach before I realized I was waiting at the wrong terminal. After finding the right bus, I took it to the end of the line (another 45 minutes) only to find I now had to catch another shuttle to the beach. That took another 15 minutes but arrive I finally did!
And a boardwalk with several beer gardens. But nowhere to have breakfast. Even though it was now about 1.30 p.m. And again, no people.
There was a strange sort of bandshell.
And this clever piece of artwork.
But the shops were closed. In mid-afternoon.
I couldn't ask about places to eat because the information centre was closed.
I decided to use the Men's Room, but....
There was, in fact, only one place open in the immediate area...
So it was back to the Skyway once more ("Nicky Arnstein...") which deposited me back at my hotel around 5pm. Just in time for the restaurant to open in the lobby. So, for breakfast I had....dinner.And more Key Lime Pie.
