"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

Visit to Key West

Key West is about an hour ride from Marathon where we are staying. Our friends Ed & Diane came down for a  visit, and the 4 of us went to see the sites in the most southern key in the U.S.  What can I say about Key West, maybe I'll just post some pictures.

 This guy played his banjo as his dog "Cleo" would walk around and take dollar bills from the crowd with his mouth and put them in the bucket.  The dog was a big hit.  At one point a toddler in a stroller was holding a dollar in one hand and  a cracker in the other, the dog ate the cracker, walked away without the dollar, went back and checked for more food before he took the dollar. Cute act!

These are street performers in Key West on Mallory Square.  It was a beautiful day, sunny and about 82, the sea fog rolled in about an hour before sunset and swallowed the sun. We will probably return when our son Dan comes down, so maybe there will be a sunset picture opportunity then.
The Stuffed Pig is a popular breakfast/lunch spot, and rightfully so. Good food, out door restaurant, great service and sunshine. Can't get better than that.  Thanks for coming down Diane & Ed.

Hello Jim and Mary! I am knee deep in the latest Ohio snow. Days like today make me wonder why I left the Keys.... Anyway, I can only hope Spring is around the corner...
I am glad you made your way to Key West, the weather sounded great. Almost time to break out the shorts!
I hope your weekend weather is great! Soak up the sun for me!
Hugs and kisses. I hope you enjoy Dan's visit!

Love Sue and crew...
