. . .is this place where Bess is working??
Here is the view from the table in the previous post, looking out at the 7 Mile Bridge.
To back up and fill in more info on this whole job/working thing - Bess had been considering, since the earlier ugliness with the mast, seeking gainful employment because being industrious is good for both the soul and the cruising kitty.
After making a few inquiries around town, to no avail, one day we were cruising around on our bikes down toward the 7 Mile Bridge. We were ready to turn around and head back, but on a whim took a little side road that led up past the Pigeon Key visitor center and down to Knight's Key. There at the bend in the road was this great looking thatched roof building with a sign out front saying "Sunset Grille opening February 12."
We wandered inside to find the place bustling with all the activity one would expect in a place only 3 days from opening. Bess asked for an application and a few days later found herself a working stiff - and really, really enjoying it.
Now she comes home every night with cash that is handed over to Bill for safe keeping. He says this makes him feel like a pimp and that maybe he should buy a white velvet hat with a purple feather.
