Key West - Tilefish for dinner!

Now here's a happy group from Dutchess enjoying their retirement!
We were on the back of our boat today when we had a return visit from  a couple that spotted our boat last week and couldn't believe their eyes! They were from Amenia, right next door to Lagrangeville, our home town (painted on the back of our boat as our home port). They stopped by to talk and both of us caught up on the latest happenings in the area. They are retired military and make good use of the local military bases where slips can be had at very low prices ($0.50 to $1.20/day). They are touring the country much like we are with no specific schedule.

This boat catches fish!!
They like to fish and we were offered a fillet of Tilefish which we immediately accepted, of course. It's a white fish with some thickness and Ann sauteed it with lemon and olive oil. There just is nothing like fresh fish for dinner and what we had was the freshest, caught yesterday. Ann topped it off with a salad and snap peas, just great.

Sauteed Filefish, just great
After dinner we walked along Duval Street for a block, crowded as usual this time of night. Every place was hopping, not an empty seat anywhere. Ann worked on her pastel some more this afternoon, I'll include a photo of it when it's done.
