I was astonished to see no one at Veterans Memorial Park last week well after sunrise. In winter this spot, at the south end of the Seven Mile Bridge is packed, and photographers often show up to watch the sun show up over Marathon.
I woke up late, still fighting pneumonia and Cheyenne and I were alone, with the usual epidemic of abandoned footwear. I don't know how people lose their shoes all the time. Mind you, reading the Key West Yard Sale Facebook page you'd be even more astonished how many people manage to lose their dogs.
Another beautiful day in the making, not too hot around 90 degrees with a cool breeze to mitigate the humidity. I know its been the hottest summer on record and I know the west is in major drought and burning up but in the Keys the summer has been perfect. All I have to do is shake off my endless bloody pneumonia.
