From The Archives 2009

I've lost track how many pictures I have in my many picasa web albums.
They aren't well organized so everything is a bit random.
Above the new complex at Dante's. A touch of the mainland in Key West.
Below the old Blue Paper, now limited to a web page. "Journalism as a contact sport."
Tim and Tiina came for a visit.
I met Tim in 1981 in Delray Beach. We moved together to Santa Cruz, California in 1982.
They came as crew on a sailboat from Mexico. Tim lives aboard in California and longs to retire to Hawaii.
Spring Break is an annual pain.
Stand up kayaking is weird. Always has been.
Antipasto at Salute on Higgs Beach.
Never disconnected. I wonder about this as I post my pages.
Distant North Big Pine Key.

Always a dog walk.
Islamorada, Bob's Bunz for breakfast. Pastries are the theme but I like eggy breakfasts on the road.
Roseate spoonbills? I am not an ornithologist.
The Western Union sailboat got a refresher on the Inner Mole at Truman Waterfront.
Summer heat.
The old Mohawk a World War Two survivor now sunk off Sanibel Island.

Fort Zachary Taylor State Park.
Classic Old Town Key West.
The new, unnamed access road to Truman Waterfront from Petronia Street

Me on a visit to my childhood home in Italy with a rented BMW.
Giovanni and I planning our tour to Amalfi, June 2009.
My sister and I visiting Sicily around 1965.
Giovanni a few years later. We rode mopeds together and still ride together today when we can.
