18 May 2009 | One of the Six-toed Cats Sleeping on Hemingway's Master Bed
Key West was an exciting place, full of restaurants and shops. Kikuyu was docked in the Key West Bight Marina located in the middle of the harbor surrounded by many restaurant and places to "spend money." Again, as in other ports we had visited, we spent the first day or two finding the supermarket, doing laundry and doing general chores. Daniel was also busy with his schooling so we did not spend a lot of time in town. We did manage to walk on the main drag "Duval Street", visit the Hemingway, take pictures of some of the mansions the island boasts, and visit Sloppy Joes' restaurant where Hemingway is said to have visited every afternoon to have his drinks.
We had a lot of mixed feelings about being back specially in the difficult economic times the US is facing but it felt great to be back to the United States. It is taking us long to adjust to the fact that we are back and we continue to act as if we were in a foreign country. After all, Key West is not yet home.
