Baby's Coffee

I was ambling with Cheyenne when I saw this blob and I had to trot back to the car to get my camera. These things are everywhere and if you search Facebook for Key West Blob there is apparently an explanation.


Call me eccentric but I prefer not to know so I just note them in passing and keep on keeping on. My wife was inside Baby's Coffee buying us an afternoon pick-me-up so I had Cheyenne to myself for a few minutes.


The coffee shop is at Mile Marker 15, whence they moved after starting out life in downtown Key West at the KW Peppers building if I remember correctly.


Then they moved the roasting operation to the mainland to save money and took the retail store to Bay Point.


Which island has it turns out a nice chunk of Monroe County open space behind the coffee shop.


The Lower Keys Shuttle between Key West and Marathon has a stop here, seen above. Below, my dog decided this was where we would have our coffee:


In the company of some locals resting comfortably in the grass.


Soon enough my wife appeared with the coffee and we watched the clouds scud overhead while I listened to my wife's latest tale of woe from the horribly administered school district. I am hoping the idiot Superintendent gets his marching orders before he ruins local schools completely. He is under qualified, inexperienced and as a result has a very inflated ego and a total lack of self confidence. And he hates strong women which puts my wife at risk.


A passing dog walker very kindly offered Cheyenne a treat which made her the poor woman's best friend for life.


Jeez Cheyenne! It's just a cookie!


It's a fine spot behind Baby's. The best place to stop and enjoy coffee on a lovely Keys afternoon.

Looks like Cheyenne is a strong woman too and calls some of the shots :-)

You have no idea. If she doesn't want to walk in particular direction she just stands and stares at me until I give in. I am her slave.
