|This is the larger boat|
After our simple lunch, we hopped back into la lavender, and headed over to the Casa Marina area, to see the old dock and the water on the Atlantic side. I stuck my toes in and felt the slightly cool water- and saw this pretty girl snorkeling- something I had done around the coral reef, years ago, which at 160 miles, is the eighth largest in the world! I did envy her the utter freedom and indulgence- like a fish she was, and no doubt as blissfully ignorant of any harm that may come her way ! :(
We got back in, and rode off, and I suggested getting an apres' lunch ice cream, which we did- and then wandered somewhat crazily back over to the Fleming Street area where I saw this adorable bicycle! This is so artistic, and KW seems to have become a little haven for artists, old hippies, and eccentrics. We also did a "drive by" of my fave antiques shop on the island, The Duck and The Dolphin. The sun kept going in and out, and there were wonderful breezes...
Here, Billy strikes a very "Prada" pose- looking so cute in his stripe polo. I took this shot of him on the dock where I had seen the girl snorkeling. We both miss the old days (1970's) in KW, when there was a wild vibe of wanton sexuality to the place. But, we also relished the idea of going back to civilization, i.e Naples- and nice clean condos!
How funny is this little plate on the front of la lavender? It says Conch Electric Cars. A wave of the future?
Or- the KW version of a Tesla?
Ah, alas, dear sailors, all good things must (quickly, and too soon) come to an end. From the bow of the good ship Lollipop, I took this shot- we had a wonderful, leisurely day on the island- and we left with no heaviness in our hearts. Farewell dear little key- we will see you again soon! Cheers! DF *****
