    A small 2 mile by 4 mile island at the end of US Highway 1 with 460 bars, that's right, BARS (not including restaurants that serve alcohol). So this group of photos are for MJ, as she's the one who encouraged me. These photos were taken of the Bars along a 4 block section of Duval Street, starting close to where we stayed and Mallory Square. Since there are so many I'll break them up.

    And the last of the group. Can you imagine stopping for a drink at each one? I wouldn't be surprised if MJ has a tee shirt from the last bar. When you see the last photo you'll think MJ was there.

    Hell no. Didn't even go into most, not as young as I use to be. We went for the experience and it was one.

    Correction, I said I didn't go into every one of these places. There are quite a number that were visited. After all the Flying Monkey Saloon doesn't quite sound like my place. You can't go without a visit to Sloppy Joe's, and Cap't Tony's.

    Isn't the Garden of Eden the naked place? I cannot in my wildest imagination imagine going into a bar and getting naked, standing around. I wouldn't want to sit on the bar stool, ifyouknowwhatImean.

    There was an escort type service around the corner that advertised you could get naked too.

    When I was applying for my job down there, my future BOSS took me to the Garden of Eden without telling me about the place. OLD locals get nekkid and do NOT use towels when they sit down. The tourons stay clothed and just point and laugh.

    While I may be OLD I did not get nekkid, did a lot of snickering though.

    Hey Clark, I just talked to V and she said her friends like a couple of places.
    The Conch Republic and Schooner's Wharf.
    Did you happen into either of those places that you can remember?? :D
