The Smokin' Tuna, Peter Mayer
From there, I met up with Katrina and Garrett who were out and about, pottering. We ventured down to Smokin' Tuna but could not get in as they were having a private event. Unperturbed we said we would continue down the back lane and go to Hank's instead. Well lo and behold, didn't we find out that Smokin' Tuna's back bar abuts the laneway and you can literally sit at the back bar (outside in the lane), have drinks and see the stage. Isabelle also joined us, fun!
And who was on the stage?!!! Oh, only the fabulous Peter Mayer! Probably best known for playing in Jimmy Buffet's band...but for me I don't get a huge Jimmy B vibe from him. Instead I get George Harrison, Van Morrison, The Beatles (mainly George!), The Tremeloes, Manfred Mann and more of that kind of good stuff. He is awesome! I saw him play in the Key West Theatre Christmas just before Covid and I was enthralled and hooked. Can't believe I didn't know he was playing Key West again, can't believe I caught him by pure chance.
This little island really is Paradise.
Canadian bacon and pancakes with maple syrup
Sunday morning and no boat outings - too windy, small craft advisory in place.
Southernmost Cafe (on the beach), Happy Hour
I met Isabelle for a lovely few after work drinks and a bite to eat. After a little discussion, we settled on the Southernmost Cafe where we ordered a big load of carbs. Yup! Buffalo chicken poutine and pizza rolls. C'mere sure, what are you going do about it?!
'Twas a fun night!
To celebrate/mark a few occasions Patrick booked A&B Lobsterhouse. I've been dying to go there for years so I can't tell you how happy and excited I was to hear this!

My friend Paul texted me last Monday morning to remind me he was calling Bingo (in aid of Sister Season) in the Green Parrot that evening. I immediately said it to Patrick and we said we would go. I knew he would. Patrick loves bingo! Ha! You're thinking, why, it is a little old lady game?? Nah! Throw a bottle or two of Corona along with it and sure you could be in Caesar's Palace in Vegas. Ok, I exaggerate a little, but it does kind of feel like gambling and it is a bit of fun of an evening. So, I have to say, also fun is that we kind of SUCK at it. We never win!! Until this night when I did - and now we have a $20 gift certificate for Lost and Found bar. Must go there soon... And finally, it is nice to support a community fundraising event.

Made my day!
Today is an awesome day!
...enjoying a little picnic for one!
When I got a text to say that these beautiful flowers had just been delivered and were sitting on my desk in work. We have just the loveliest guests in our hotel! Made my day!!
Girl time at The Venetian
Yesterday I hung out with Emily, Isabelle and Katrina in Emily's house. Her house is on Venetian Drive so her and her husband like to call their place The Venetian. It fits!
Emily had a terrific spread of cheese and charcuterie and her famous air fried wings, mmmm. I brought Key Lime Pie (which got very MELTY btw! It is HOT here these days), and Katrina made her famous stromboli, which let me tell you is amazing.
After a big load of eating and some drinks we made it to the pool.
