Tourist Town

Key West Bight one fine Spring Morning.

Key West the picture postcard, sun reflecting off still waters.

Tourists negotiating a ride on those waters...

They say owners end up looking like their dogs...

...and I know I do.


I saw this woman cleaning a life ring off a charter boat:

I wanted to enquire whether drowning patrons would prefer to be flinging to a nicely polished flotation device? The question sounded flippant even in my head, so I refrained.

One more new luxury resort is making progress on the waterfront next to Schooner Wharf Bar. I wonder how the guests will like the music from across the lane all day and late at night. I see lawsuits and bitter recriminations in the future. Tourists like their towns just so.
