Ken & Roberta s/v Second Wind come to Boot Key Harbor


Our friends Ken & Roberta on the s/v Second Wind have returned to the United States. We left them in Bonaire and they continued on the Columbia, Panama and the Western Caribbean. Click here to see their website they have some great pictures. They stopped in Boot Key Harbor Marathon on the way up to North Carolina where they will settle in. We had a great visit.

All the pictures in this post are courtesy of Ken & Roberta. To the left is a cuban refugee boat if you click on the picture then zoom in you can read the placard. To the right is Roberta at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. Doesn't the water look great!

The four of us took the bus to Key West. Ken & Roberta had to check back into the USA and the office was in Key West. We are driving over the 7 mile bridge at Marathon.

Key West has great restaurants, we have never had a bad meal. Nobody wanted their Mardi Gras beads so Kim got them all :) The sculpture to the right shows the Wreckers. The original inhabitants of the Keys made their living salvaging ships that wrecked on the reefs.

This is the famous Duval Street in Key West and Sloppy Joe's Bar one of the places Hemmingway used to hang out.

We end the day at the Hog's Breath Saloon.
Cheers Kim and Mike
