More Key West activities
One day, after a morning of laundry, we set off for Fort Zachary Taylor, its nearby beach and Coast Guard ships, and its outdoor art sculpture. But hunger ruled and we took a lunch detour to Blue Heaven, a stereotypical mostly outdoors Key West restaurant with chickens and roosters strutting by.
MY bum knee was not happy after we walked a few extra miles after getting completely different directions to the sculpture “garden” from three different locals. Then the "sculptures" were less than impressive to our artistically discerning eyes, except for one made by school kids out of plastic bags. So we had to stop at Sloppy Joe’s for a medicinal margarita on the way back to dinner onboard MicMac.
We then returned to Kelly’s for vino and lots of conversation with fellow and once-were sailors, and finally a return to the Schooner Wharf Bar where I learned another useful phrase for being over-served. One of the band members was “spurring his sleech” after a few satisfied customers tipped him with shots. Schooner Wharf rules!
