Keys Pix 6

Petronia is a one way street but its narrow and a pedicab can be enough to create delay. More people need to learn the dimensions of their vehicles if they plan to drive in Key West. I see people all the time who are incapable of squeezing their SUVs through any hole narrower than a freeway onramp.


A motorcycle is always best and this guy was enjoying all of Duval Street as he posed to look good.


I never quite understand the fascination with the steps at Wendy's at 335 Duval Street. I am going to have to squat here one day to see what these perennial squatters find so fascinating. Aside from anything else the steps seem somehow rather unsanitary at best ad as a rule I'm not fussy.


Sand fleas are a worse problem in the insect world than mosquitoes, in my opinion and this year the ankle biters are particularly virulent at my home and this young beauty of a saleswoman checking her leg at the MADD display on The 300 Block of Duval put me in mind, unaccountably, of the underside of my home. I am useless at photographing people.


A colleague won an expensive motorcycle at the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Raffle so I can confirm it is actually real.


I cannot for the life of me imagine earning a living by sitting in these booths along the street but I am undoubtedly missing something. On the other hand I found the stupid "No Trespassing" sign even more daft, for some reason, at the Palm Reader's empty booth. Then again the idea that your future can be told from the lines on your palm is one of those bizarre notions, belief in which will probably garner you a cabinet position in the Bachmann administration in 2012 when the world ends, they say.


I don't have to read this couple's palms to tell them the next 18 years at least are going to be expensive and interesting and largely sleepless in their immediate future.


Here's another dude, below, struggling with directions. Should I have intervened and helped? Luckily I didn't bother because he was actually operating a phone that was apparently smarter than himself. Which is another reason I don't own one of those gadgets.


I am glad to see the seaplanes to the Dry Tortugas operating again.


Next time I have $160 dollars my wife doesn't know about I will take a half day trip and see the magnificence of the waters from the air. I quite like Fort Jefferson too.

I can a test, once I went on a guys' trip to the Keys to Fort Jefferson this way. Magnificent. Not that it matters, but you do have to tell them what you weigh so they can balance the plane (it struck me odd, but makes sense).
