Key West - Neat car, Mardi Gras and Fiona

Great way to start the day - a Mustang convertible rental
We wanted to drive out to Bill McKeever's RV park to be part of his Mardi Gras celebration that he organizes every year so I reserved a car from Enterprise for $29/day. Getting to the rental place, they were short of cars and as I was looking at a fire engine red Mustang convertible, the guy asked me how I liked it, and I said "great", he replied, "It's yours!" I had no problem with that and put down the top and drove off!

At the party we met Hicks who used to work with Rudy Colich - small world (now we know the real story of Rudy)
Back at the marina, I walked Ann out to the car and said we had the gray compact next to the red Mustang, I pressed the unlock button on the key chain and the lights on the Mustang lit up - Ann was surprised, she has a great weakness for convertibles. So we headed out to mile marker 20 to Bill's KOA park for the Mardi Gras.

No trouble here - temp was 79
Bill and Ruth had organized the event and there was food for everyone, more than needed which is part of the fun. We are starting to get into the swing of things down here, just lots of fun with people you can really like - and of course the weather is wonderful.

Typical bar in Key West - a place for the entertainment and patrons nearby - here it's Fiona
Back at the marina we took an intermission before piling back in the car for a trip down Duval Street with the top down, an immersion in the sights and sounds. We wound up with the same group we partied with at the KOA park but at an Irish Pub with Fiona playing and had a great time, a Key West easy time more and more.
