Last Day in Key West

Days on cruise:  288

Today was extremely humid so we did our morning jog at 6:30, but it was still uncomfortable. Oh well, it’s warm and sunny, so no complaints.

We’re in a slip just across from the “Yacht Dock” at our marina, and there are some impressive boats here, including this 1935 Mathis/Trumpy 85-foot wooden beauty.


If you’re interested, she’s for sale!   Click on this LINK to see  the listing.


Our Looper friends Susan and Carolyn on Sojourner have their car here, and they kindly offered to take us grocery shopping. It’s always nice when we can shop with a car so we don’t have to worry about size and weight of our purchases to carry home on a bike or by foot. We stocked up! Afterwards, the four of us went to lunch at “Paseo” (above), a former gas station converted to a restaurant that’s very popular, and now we know why. Great, inexpensive food!

At 5:00 we went to The Gardens Hotel for live music for the evening. They have live performances every Thursday through Sunday evenings, and Sunday is jazz. The setting is around their pool and spectacular gardens in the back. No cover charge, and drinks and appetizers are available for purchase. We were surprised to see 150-200 people in attendance, and were glad we went early so snagged a table. Lots of people had to stand.


We were situated so we could enjoy the people watching too.


The band was three men on trumpet, guitar and drums. They were good!


It was wonderful to listen to live music outside in February, and we enjoyed the night noises of cicadas and frogs on the walk back to the marina, along with the almost full moon.
