On to the keys

The Trip back down to Punta Gorda was uneventful and we actually got to sail for a bit.
Running south under spinnaker
Once at their dock we picked up Russ and with the forecast promising an easy east wind we headed south to Key West. Oh what a lie the forecast turned out to be. The wind turned toward the nose and increased until we were jumping around so much that it felt like a washing machine inside of the boat. It continued all night & the next day, it was a truly yucky trip south. We were very glad to pick up the lights of Key West that evening and drop anchor. Once ashore, this is just a little of what we saw:
This sign was right next to...
This "fish cutting board" al-la pelican feeding station
This old guy sang sea shanties on one of the wooden tall ships
I meet Marilyn Monroe!
Saw this mermaid up on a building she's in great shape for being from 1889
We saw this picture all over Key West this year.
Key West is just a ‘hoot & a holler’ if you like that type of crowd. Lot’s of tourist and lots of locals trying their best to get a dollar or two off from everyone of those tourists. Lot’s to see around the island. We dropped Russ off (he was taking the fast ferry back to the west coast of Fl) and after a few days we headed north to Marathon and the Bahamas.
Finally, Sunset at Key West next stop, Marathon and the Bahamas.
