ALIVE AND WELL IN KEY WEST

Nothing much to write about but thought I should update the blog to let everyone know we are still here in Key West. For the most part we spend our days getting off the boat for at least a few hours each day (Bill more so than me). About every third day we ride our bikes to town and get a breakfast bagel at Key West Ice Cream Factory and Cafe located on the wharf. We both agree best breakfast bagel (bacon, egg and cheese) we have ever had.
For the past four Saturday afternoons we have gone to "Aqua" bar to play Texas Hold'Em. It's a group of locals getting together to play a fun, friendly game of poker with no money or winnings just bragging rights if you come in first.
We have been to the pool at Conch Harbor Marina a couple of times. Anyone can use their pool if you buy a drink or food at Dante's. Food is good, not overly priced.
Hurricane season officially started on June 1st. Our plan is to leave Key West next week and head back to Marathon and Banana Bay Resort for the summer. If there is a named storm Banana Bay recommends we leave the marina and tie up to a mooring ball in Boot Key Harbor. We have put together two lists 1. Boat preparation and 2. What to take with us when we leave the boat. We still haven't figured out where we will go when we leave the boat, it will depend on how severe the storm/hurricane is predicted to be. We will either get a hotel room in Marathon or head north by bus or rental car. Keeping our fingers crossed that our hurricane plan will not be put into action.
Kelsey, Bill's daughter, spent a week with us. It was great to see her and we all had a good time.
June 6th was my son Chris's birthday and June 7th it was Bill's youngest daughter Mariah's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU BOTH!!!
By now all our boating friends back in Silver Bay Minnesota should have their boats in the 36 degree temperature water. We miss you all and the booze cruises on "Destiny" but I absolutely do not miss the cold!
