Key West, back in the USA !

16 March 2017 | Key West Bight
So we are back to real time, our adventure to Cuba a memory, and we are enjoying "vacation" in Key West. We will be in Key West the month of March, with visitors coming to stay a week or so and friends from St. Louis here renting a condo for the month. Jim and Nancy Sauer have sailed and traveled with us in the past, so it's fun to have them here all month to enjoy all the sights and sounds of this vibrant town. Lenny and Mary Lou, from St. Louis are here for a week, so we all spend the week having dinner, listening to music in the bars and watching the throngs on Duvall Street.
After watching the sunset celebration one night at Mallory Square, we all went out the next aboard Joy for a sunset sail, reversing the usual celebration to watch the crowds of people on Mallory rather than watching the boats from Mallory ! Diana has an old friend coming in to spend a week with us, and after Mary Pat leaves, my grandson Zack and his girl friend Rachel fly in to spend a week on-board. Spring break has begun, and the kids have descended upon Key West, so we know Zack and Rachel will have a wonderful time. For Diana and I, we get a break, no traveling, no boat issues (only minor ones!), and we will probably take a break from the blog until we leave Key West the first of April, its bright, sunny, warm and the beaches are lovely, and we are still escaping the snow and ice up north! Life is Good !
