Key West - We see a play

By the Cuban Coffee Queen
Key West is the home of several theaters that put on plays of all types. Thinking that a lot of artists are attracted to the end of route 1, I thought it would be interesting to see what they could do. I wanted a comedy and a play from a recognized playwright so I bought tickets to Noel Coward's "Private Lives" We were first in line and got a table right in front of the stage. I found the play to be very loud. It was a small theater but the actors yelled a lot which is hard for me to understand. The acting was good but I missed many lines.

Earlier in the day I just couldn't pass up more photos of hibiscus. They are in full bloom all over Key West and I'm fascinated by the large blooms. Along the way I noticed seven workmen standing around watching an automated ditch digger and thought that the machine did the work of seven men - but then those seven were just watching the machine work. It didn't seem like a real savings.

Good thing they have the automated ditch digging machine - the men aren't doing too much
We got a new neighbor, "Good Times". It's 133 ft long and you can charter it for $40,000/week, any takers? The yacht blocks the setting sun since it's between us and Mallory Square.
