Key West – Where It Happens

DSC4793 Edit

We normally avoid tourist destinations, dislike docks, and prefer the quiet of isolated anchorages.

But we will make an exception for Key West.


It has a unique blend of architecture…




…with an abundance of flowering trees…

DSC1614 Edit

…mixed in with wildlife…


…that comes in all forms.


There are restaurants a-plenty.


Lots of gaudy souvenirs…


…and a sunset party scene…

DSC1766 Edit
…that commands your attendance.


Mother Nature puts on the big show.

And afterwards, you can go for a quiet walk…


…enjoy the cool evening, and mixture of old…


…and new within the inner harbor.


The family has flown back to their own lives.

While we and Cochise get on with ours.

    Wonderful pictures.
    Coming up Florida’s west coast or continuing your prep northward where sno-cones are made?

    From Fort Lauderdale we are heading toward Beaufort, NC.

    Mr. Dashew,

    Just got a note from my close friend, Dave Wyman, telling me of your arrival in Key West.

    In her day as CONDOR I was privileged to log quite a number of miles on her and with Dave. Dave has kept abreast of the changes to her over the years.

    I live here in Key West and would like to have the pleasure of meeting you should you have time.

    Kind regards,

    Harry Privette

    I happen to live in Key West and was able to see Cochise recently when she was tied up at the city docks. I’ve been following the FPBs for quite some time, but seeing the boat in person really is an impressive sight. As my wife put it later that night, “we really need to be FPB people.”
