We took the past couple days off. Good choice since the weather turned sour. Never imagined being in the Keys and having to don fleece. Brrrr.
Our friend Gus is retired Navy so we were able to rent bicycles one day for only $6.00. The perfect way to tour Key West.
We hit the Charter Museum, the Ernest Hemmingway home, and East Martello. Fun.
Lunch was at the best Cuban restaurant in town, El Siboney, which is tucked away in a residential. The roast pork, yellow rice with black beans, sweet plantains, and fresh Cuban bread was simply marvelous. Then cold beer at the Green Parrot topped off the day-The oldest bar in Key West.
We picked up our paddles again yesterday (Thursday) and did about 17 miles ending in the vicinity of the blimp base. It was chilly and windy with strong currents making our yaks a bit difficult to maneuver. Gotta keep those hips loose and always have a paddle in the water to avoid taking an unexpected dip.
Winds are expected to be blustery again today. Yeehaw!
