The beginning of a lovely Key West Sunday!
It’s all here! Sun, water, blue sky. Magnificent!
I spent the better part of yesterday morning watching the ceremonies attendant to 9/11. And also watched the film of that day.
It was painful.
When the event occurred 9 years ago, it was shocking. My thoughts at the time were this cannot be happening.
Yesterday the shock was gone. There was only pain. The knowledge that it had happened and could happen again.
Around lunch time I was off to visit Lisa and the family. Corey’s parents are visiting for the weekend. We had some interesting chats regarding this Muslim thing. Did not always agree. However, we were able to talk and remain friends even though we were coming from different perspectives on occasion. As most people are these days.
Then it was the Coffee House for me. A cup of coffee and the New York papers. There were very few people. It was a time of solitude.
I desired cuban toast in some form. So it was over to Lucky Day and a cuban toast with melted cheese and tomato. Satisfying food!
I spent a couple of hours at Higgs Beach in the afternoon. Not too crowded. Enjoyed the sun on my body. Slept a bit.
I had no plans for last night. As I was driving to US 1, I decided to go north instead of south to Key West. I headed towards Big Pine. I decided to go to Boondocks for dinner.
Boondocks is much like Hogfish. Thatched roof. Open walls. Larger. A bit more updated. Because it’s newer.
Boondocks also sits in a better neighborhood. Just off US 1. I am not knocking Hogfish. Hogfish’s location adds to its flavor. The downtown Stock Island bit!
I ate at the bar. A fish sandwich. and potato salad. Boondocks has terrific potato salad! Talked with the people around me. Knew none of them before I went. Now we are all friends. Even exchanged e mails and telephone numbers.
Today is Sunday. Meet the Press shortly. The New York Times. Pro football later at Don’s Place. Dinner with Lisa and the family tonight.
What could be better?
Enjoy your day!
