ANOTHER WEEK ZIPS BY.

 Docked at:  Galleon Marina 


One of many bars on Duval Street - this one has the best architecture!
                                                      The pink taxi fits right in!

Fish for dinner!

Retrieving palm branches - he even loves salt water.

Quite a name for a fishing charter!


A tortoise drumming up business for the aquarium.

Zeke and Garth chillin with an old captain.
The Blue Blur - this guy rides his decked out bike with a boom box up and down the streets every night. I have been trying for two weeks to get a picture of him. This is the best so far - I intend to keep trying!!

Well another week has just flown by. We did manage to get at least one thing accomplished this week. Garth replaced the wallpaper in the crew quarters head - it looks much brighter.  Humm, I just asked Garth "what did we do this week" his reply, we had cocktails and watched the boats coming and going. Well, yes we did that, but we also walked Zeke everyday and went out for dinner/lunch a few times.
The number one rated restaurant on Trip Adviser is "Garbos Grill" - believe it or not Garbos is a food cart. We tried it this week and it was very good, seating is on the coolers which hold the drinks. There is one umbrella and one wooden bar stool! The food was excellent and they are dog friendly to boot. Guess when you are sitting on a cooler in a parking lot nobody is going to complain about a dog!  We did later find out from Frank and Bobbie that there is a strategy to getting a seat - take your food across the street to the pepper store and they have seats - at the same time you can sample their pepper sauces on your food! Trouble being that now you feel obliged to buy their hot sauces!
 We also went to Blue Heaven . It has the old time Key West atmosphere - open air dining with roosters and cats walking around. Both the food and the company were great. Apparently, Oprah loves their Key Lime Pie!!  Last year we fell for the "Oprah eats hamburgers here" and we were not impressed, so we no longer use her as a bench mark for culinary treats. We opted for the flour less Belgium chocolate torte, delectable.
The best part of our week was the nightly stroll along Duval Street people watching and getting together with the other loopers here - Frank & Carrie and Carol & Rich.  Always entertaining and fun. The worst part of our week was bidding adieu to Frank and Carrie, they head north tomorrow, weather permitting.

Nice home

I liked this one!

Note the gingerbread - it is gingerbread men!!

Love the wrap around upper balcony.
