Sunset Cruise, Aaarrrrrrggghhh!

After our naps we took a taxi to the marina area of KW to board the schooner Liberty Clipper for a sunset dinner cruise in the harbor area. We were fortunate to catch the ship before she is moved to Boston for the summer. This is her last week in KW.

As you can see, there were quite a few passengers, about 60, on board. Do you notice the bricks piled up to make a grill in the background of this picture? Let me see----wooden ship, open charcoal grill---what could go wrong?

The huge sails (the mainsail weighs a ton) were raised by volunteers from the passengers and we were underway! Dinner could not be far away. This is all they could scrape together for food.

Sunset at Key West. Very nice.

There is a very brief instant of green flash just as the last edge of the sun disappears behind the ocean. Never saw that before.

Back to port and a long day is over. Goodnight, John Boy.
