Proof-of-Attendance Coupons, Key West

KWIMG_2543

These poses are required by anyone claiming to have been in Key West. We are getting laminated copies for our wallets. Plus, I plan to use this one for my next passport picture.

KWIMG_2542 Here’s our trusty crew, Bill, finally getting in touch with his feminine side. I think either a boob job or some head shrinking is in order to balance things out. But it is a good start.

We are in Key West with a big hole in the boat where the Green Grief Volvo engine used to be. A brand new Yanmar is supposed to arrive on a truck today from St. Petersburg. The local mechanic shop, Mark di Jong, has really been on top of things so far.

While waiting on a new engine, we rented a car and drove up the Florida Keys to Fort Lauderdale to catch up with family.

On the way back to Key West we drove out to the Everglades National Park. Got there just in time for the gator parade.
