Slept late this morning!
Sun already up! Bright! No breeze. Palm tree just standing there. Water not moving.
I walked the waterfront yesterday morning. Trying to get back into good health!
Parked my car at Paradise Cafe. Then walked over to the water. My route took me by Dante’s, the back side of Half Moon, along Turtle Kraal, the backside of Waterfront Market, along Schooner’s Wharf, outside the Conch Republic, by Alonzo’s, across the street to the Galleon, around the Galleon dock and then back again along the same route in reverse.
A good solid 30 minute fast walk!
I was soaking wet from the walk. Bought a bottle of water at Paradise and sat and read the papers. Later I had lunch at Paradise. Cuban toast with melted cheese and tomato. The best!
Then to Borders for some book reading. I glanced through a work on pre Castro Cuba. What a place!
The question presently is two fold. Will Cuba ever be fully open again to U.S. citizens? What will be the impact on Key West?
Many here in Key West believe the opening is coming. And soon! And that Key West will benefit economically!
We shall see.
I stopped into the Chart Room last night. I was all alone by the telephone. The bar was empty!
Peter had already been in and gone. I called Marty on the cell. He was in Miami.
So I was alone!
Two tourusts came in and saved me. Andy and Anikue.
Andy and Anikue are from Brooklyn. Their fifth visit to Key West. They love it! They have always stayed at the Pier House.
Andy is a paramedic at a New York hospital emergency room. He runs the whole operation. Five emergency vehicles and a staff of 50 odd persons. A big responsible job!
I learned a lot about ambulance work and paramedic activity. Whether a trauma, heart attack or whatever, these people are our immediate initial chance for survival!
Anikue (that is her name!) was an attractive lady! As lovely as her name! Her job is the most important of all. She is a stay at home Mom of 3! And proud of it!
My dinner was wings at Kelley’s bar. Good, as usual!
Then home to an early bed.
I have a screw off day in the making! Nothing on my plate! Good!
I hope you can squeeze some do nothing time into your day!
