So I was in town after a night off, to meet my wife for lunch and as it actually was my birthday I got to choose where we ate, so I chose Alonzo's as I had a hankering for fish. We usually eat at Alonzo's for an early dinner when appetizers are half price but I wanted to enjoy fish on the water yesterday so we did. The tourists above were peering into the depths from the boardwalk and I suppose they were looking for live fish swimming about. We had a quick look and all we could see was what appeared to be a grayish snapper type of fish and a lot of aquamarine colored saltwater. I was far more interested in my cold glass of Key West Amber (brewed in Tampa).
To prove my point that this is a good time of year to be downtown check out the motorcycle and scooter parking lot at the end of Front Street. In winter this vehicle lot is guarded by a man as vicious as Cerberus the three headed dog that guarded Hades in mythology. He steps out of the hut a d demands to know your business and sets a time limit on how long cars of motorcycles can park. This time of year no one challenged us as we rode in on the Bonneville and sauntered across the boardwalk to lunch.
Key West in November, an excellent time to ride a motorcycle in shirt sleeves, eat lunch downtown, and enjoy pretending to be on vacation for a day.
