A Still Night On The Waterfront

Imagine a still night on the Key West waterfront in summer, between midnight and one in the morning, with not a human in sight, and only the gentle breeze for company...I could hear machinery humming on the ships docked around the Navy basin, the place where once submarines were prepared for sea duty. It was warm enough to sweat, yet cooled enough by the breeze to be so pleasant as to induce in me thoughts of sleep. I wandered back and forth on the Inner Mole, taking pictures of the Coastguard Cutter Ingham, now a museum with inconvenient opening hours, and ships docked at the Outer Mole doing whatever it is they have to do. I took my pictures and went back to work refreshed. So much naval activity for such a small island!
