I went to Smathers Beach yesterday morning. Not to sun or swim. To attend the plaque dedication in Diana Nyad’s honor. A good sized crowd present.
Last year, Diana swam from Cuba to Key West. Without the aid of a shark cage! The swim itself a first ever feat. She did it at age 64. Another feat.
A plaque was dedicated honoring her and the event. In addition to the plaque, Diana was made an honorary Conch. A bigger tribute than the plaque!

It was mid sunday afternoon yesterday. What to do? Decided to take Robert and Ally to No Name Pub for a late lunch. They love the place! They were not home. At the beach.
Decided to go alone. I had visions of a Philly cheese steak sandwich. They make the best!
It was the car top down and my baseball cap on backwards.
I enjoyed the sandwich. Sat at the bar. Chatted with people around me. A typical Florida Keys time in a back woods bar.
Bad sleeping night! My back started up again. Could not get comfortable. Caused me to place too much strain on the injured shoulder when I turned.
Enjoy your day!
