Late this afternoon I paid $85 bills for two hours on a sizable, three-masted schooner. Me and 20 other tourists. A mild but nice experience, and well worth it for the sunset photo ops.

Key West’s Tropic Cinema (416 Eaton St.) was born in ’04 when it was converted from a department store into a four-theatre plex. All-digital, of course. Beautiful interior design design. Managed by Lori Reid.

Blue Heaven (729 Thomas St.) is a well-respected restaurant that I’ll visit tomorrow.

Roosters and chickens are everywhere…wild on the streets.

A Key West Film Festival after-party was held tonight at the Ernest Hemingway home/museum (907 Whitehead St.). It was really tropical tonight. Warm, humid, kinda sweaty and quite wonderful.
