Back in Florida!

Lily and I arrived at Oscar Scherer State Park in Sarasota on Sunday afternoon. Hooray! Time for some fun in the sun! Scott Martin is with us; he is George's buddy from Canada. He took most of these photos with his awesome camera.

heath and michelangelo.JPG
From left to right: John with dog Jack, Michelangelo, and Heath. Michelangelo has been coming to Key West for 36 years straight; he is 86 now. This year he escaped from his old folks home, 2 weeks after open heart surgery, to get down here. We spent the evening talking about his first days in Key West in 1972 and the way things were back then. He's seen so many changes, and of course KW will never be the same. But through his stories you get a very clear image of the REAL Key West, which is nothing like it is today. Not too many of these guys left, only him and NRA Bob. Hope to see them both next year!

Tuesday photos, no Wednesday. No wait, what's today?

g fishing and boats.JPG
The only thing George caught was a bird. Yes, a bird. As G casted, it flew down and scooped up the hook. Luckily, after reeling it in, he was able to release it without any harm.

Turns out that it is Race Week 2008! Key West Race Week is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, sailing race in the country. Cheers to race week and the additional scenery it provides!

Sunday was windy! Gusts up to 31mph. This sailboat went over on its side, and had to cut it's spinnaker to right itself.

playoffs at finnigans.JPG
Sunday we spent at various pubs to watch the football games. It was rainy and windy so we didn't feel guilty being inside... or drinking and eating non-stop for 8 hours straight... yeah....

Stay tuned for: Henna Tattoos and The Secret Garden!
