Key West - The burger challenge

Every year we've seen this fish tank on one of the side roads, this year it has a top - to stop the cats fishing?/
Today wad GREAT!!! For lunch we had burgers with a twist. We tried to see who can eat their burger the fastest. Natalie won but I came in 2nd place buy a French fry!!! We also went to a Cuban museum. It was not very interesting. You see it was all written in Cuban so I could not understand it. We went to a French pastry shop. Their pastry is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. That’s all we did today BYE!!!

We had intended going for a sail but when the winds came up at 30 kts overnight, we thought better of that plan. We stayed at the dock and the gang explored Key West and had the second annual burger challenge. The intent here is simple enough, just be the first to eat all of your burger and fries. Sarah and Finn faced off but they were surprised when Natalie finished her burger first! With that Finn had a second wind and finished just ahead of Sarah! So now we'll have to wait until next year for the 3rd annual burger challenge for a rematch. 

The great burger challenge, Natalie (far to the left) won this year
Barry Cuda was playing as usual on a Friday night at BO's Fishwagon so we all trooped over to listen after dinner but managed to squarely hit his break time. No Barry Cuda! The gang is out now walking around the dock area for their last night out before having to leave on Saturday. A week sure goes fast. Sarah was very sad in reaching the end of her stay. This summer she'll join us and her other cousins for a week on Fleetwing going down the Hudson River and across Long Island Sound to Branford. Two grandparents and four grandkids, ought to be an adventure.

Does Finn get extra credit for extra letters? We enjoy reading his perspective, but the letter repetition does little to inform his audience.
Fair winds & Smooth sailing,

Lawrence, we ask Finn to do 4 to 6 lines of the blog. We get on him about all those "O's" but still gets carried away.
