A few days ago, I was driving East on Overseas Highway (U.S. 1) to look at a house on Big Pine Key.  Along the way, I noticed a guy on a small bicycle on the road shoulder to my right who was apparently pedaling along backwards!  I thought, "what's with that"??!!Well, while on Big Pine, I dropped...
Terri and I just returned last evening from a Holiday trip to Virginia, and it sure is nice to be back.  Two weeks of nearly no online service was pretty frustrating, but we had a good time driving up and back, and visiting family and friends while there.  One of the first things I did upon arriv...
 While listening to news this morning on the Keys most popular radio station, 104.1 U.S. 1 Radio, I heard something amazing to me.  The Key West Police Chief was being interviewed about Key West and the upcoming holidays.  He commented what a big time Christmas is in the City of Key West.  Then h...

Wow, what a day of excitement!!  This past Sunday was the big finale of the week-long annual Key West Power Boat Races events.  There were thousands of people in attendance at the Key West Naval Air Station "Mole" (the dock used by cruise ships visiting Key West).  All eyes were on the million do...
Well, the Grady White has been in the water, tied up to the dock, for about a month now, and it's time to get her out and back on the trailer.  I like to take the boat out of the water every now and then to keep the bottom of the hull from getting encrusted with barnacles and other marine crud.  ...
