Key West - Kenny Lutz arrives

Key West Express
There is a huge power catamaran that shuttles between Key West and Ft Meyers, called the Key West Express. It's a 3.5 hour trip and Kenny Lutz left Monday morning at 8:30 and I met him at the dock. We had cleaned out the aft cabin that morning, a monumental  effort all by itself. It's so convenient to just pitch stuff in the aft cabin but when there's company, it has to be emptied.

May look strange but it sure is fast
So I met Kenny had led him to our boat. Like everyone else, he had to climb over the bow and he did fine. We take the same slip every year and we like the privacy of the bow in approach. We don't mind coming over the bow.

Kenny and Ann at Schooner Wharf listening to Skraeling
We had lots to catch up on, we hadn't seen Kenny for many months. Ann prepared a chicken dinner which we both dug into, nothing left. Then we headed over to Schooner Wharf where Skraeling was once again the featured band from 7:00 to 11:00 pm. The star of the band is the fiddler. I cannot imagine anyone playing faster, his fingers were a blur and the sound was magical. We're back at the boat now with a summer's night, beautiful. We'll enjoy St Patrick's Day on Tuesday at a local fair, far from downtown on Duval - it's just too crowded down there. Corned Beef and Cabbage is ahead of us for sure!
