Keys Illustrated

Random pictures taken from my Picasa albums. This first picture is a bicycle decorated by Chuck's daughter and left in front of their house out of which he has apparently moved. It's pretty enough the bicycle is still there.

Pirate days at Truman Waterfront. I don't believe the pirate myths that are muttered around Key West tourists but the make believe is made fun by these people.

I see this sign each winter on Little Torch Key. 6pm seems a little early for curfew but I am no fan of noise and the jab at Duval street, well, that's what people like to do.
Haters gonna hate the engine of the local economy!

Key West, Catherine Street, perennially bored youth having fun.

I have a photo somewhere, it will show up some Sunday, of the retired banker with the bird on his shoulder. I heard it mentioned he had died. Perhaps not. He is no longer on the streets of Key West.

Houseboats. The newspaper noticed the yellow smiley face. It was a big deal for a week.

I did an essay years ago on Garrison Bight. She was enjoying her catch. I wish they wouldn't leave their fish to suffocate.

My pig in a fur coat likes anglers and their bait.

I also took my camera one winter to Cocoplum Beach in Marathon.

My non swimming Labrador likes to paddle.

I went to Sparky's for lunch one day in Key Colony Beach, a city inside Marathon. A good fish lunch.

Near Islamorada on a windy day.

 

 

And back in Key West, people watching.
It was winter, note the heavy clothing.
 

Another few pictures from the archives.

I enjoy it when you pull pics out of the archive. We never know what we'll see but it is always enjoyable.

Good grief....Bisbee Az. Not much of a need for one who repairs sails there. I hope he is well.

Chuck in Arizona. I shall gave to drop a comment. I have no desire to leave the Keys. Not to live.

Wanted you to know that after reading your post about Perrine Trailer Hitch I decided they would be the folks to install my next hitch. I was in SoFla this week and just this morning met up with Roger and Minnie and had a new hitch installed! Good Price, Excellent Service,Fabulous Folks. Thanks so much for writing about these terrific people and their business.
