Key West - Seven Fish for dinner

Today we had a car so we restocked for the next few weeks. We had so many points built up from our month long rental over the holidays when we went north from Titusville that it only cost me $2 for the rental today. So first it was a trip to provision with fresh vegetables and a few odds and ends we needed.

Next was a trip around the island to see if anything had changed from last year. There is a lot of building going on in Key West. I think they expect a lot of new business from the potential opening up of Cuba along with the decrease in the price of gasoline and diesel, both about 1/2 of last year's prices.

We met Bill Washburn and Bill Spencer of the Poughkeepsie YC for wine before going on to Seven Fish, one of the best restaurants in Key West. You have to make reservations at least a week in advance to get a decent table and time. It is not one of those places where you can walk in and get a table unless you don't mind waiting an hour or so.

So after about four glasses of wine with a full course meal, we are well oiled and ready for a night's rest. Thursday is predicted to be much cooler with a high of only 70, we'll manage.
